SANTA CLARA, Calif., (August 19, 2005) - Leading video games developer and publisher Namco Hometek Inc. announced today that "Urban ReignTM" will feature guest appearances by characters from the "TEKKEN®" series of fighting games. Marshall Law and Paul Phoenix will join "Urban Reign's" main protagonist Brad Hawk as he takes on a tough gang in back alleys, dive bars, parking lots and other urban battlegrounds. "Urban Reign" will be available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system this September and is rated T for Teen by the ESRB.
Legendary fighters Marshall Law and Paul Phoenix put their pursuit of the King of Iron Fist title on hold to help Brad Hawk clean up the streets of Green Harbor in "Urban Reign." Marshall and Paul will be playable characters in the game's free and challenge modes, and also in the game's different multiplayer modes - complete with classic moves from the "TEKKEN" series.
"Urban Reign" puts players in the middle of a full blown turf war in gang-controlled Green Harbor. Victory on the streets means doing whatever it takes to achieve victory, and players will be able to take on the city's thugs with vicious double-team attacks, unlockable special moves and more than 30 street weapons including bats, blades and 2x4's. Up to four players can also duke it out in the game's different multiplayer modes via the PlayStation 2 multitap.
