SEGA today announced that the classic arcade game After Burner has now returned for a new generation of gamers. After Burner Climax features fast and frantic feats, putting you in the cockpit of the world’s top fighter jets. Players will dodge planes, rockets and bullets while trying to target multiple on-screen enemy aircrafts. Built for all skill levels, everyone will be able to take to the air and blaze through a branching storyline with over 20 stages. After Burner Climax will be available on Xbox LIVE and on PlayStation Store.
Developed by SEGA AM R＆D 2 division, famous for titles such as Virtua Fighter and Outrun, After Burner Climax is based on the latest arcade version in the franchise. Players will square off against a plethora of AI opponents as they dodge, shoot, and barrel roll their way to victory in a variety of the game’s environments. With the Climax Mode, players can activate slow motion, which makes avoiding rockets and bullets easier, and increasing accuracy whilst aiming for those harder to hit targets.
After Burner Climax will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and PlayStation Store in Spring 2010.
