How cool would it be if Ironman and Wolverine teamed-up in a movie? Think better. How about a game that casts Ratchet and Jak? Or Daxter and Bentley? Or even Clank and Sly Cooper. How wacky can that be? Well, you don’t have to guess or think about it anymore because Sony’s greatest mascots since Crash (from Crash Bandicoot) will be teaming up together in an epic one-of-a-kind experience! Which of the pairs mentioned, you ask? Brace yourself because all six of them are going to be in one action-packed game! Ratchet, Clank, Jak, Daxter, Sly Cooper, and Bentley finally teams up in Heroes On the Move, an action-adventure video developed by Nihilistic Software exclusively for PlayStation 3 to mainly support the upcoming PlayStation Move motion controller.
With these six crazy heroes on the loose in one game, Nihilistic Software has managed to create a game plot that suits them all well though the gameplay is a bit similar to the Ratchet & Clank game series. Anyway, the plot is more or less centered on the adventure of our six heroes who are the only ones who can defeat the villains. It seems like this villain is an evil force that have stolen portions of our heroes’ home lands and enslaved the entire race of peace-loving space beings. With their skills, I bet it’ll just be a piece of cake.
A short trailer of Heroes on the Move was officially revealed at the E3 2010 Press Conference. With the vivid graphics and spirited gameplay for an action-packed game, it sure guarantees players an adventure they’ll never forget especially when the game utilizes the PlayStation Move motion controller, which means the players get to physically partake in the game. Well, that’s just a notion since there has been no demo yet on how the PlayStation Move will work with the game. I hope it’s somewhat like Sorcery where you have to perform moves accurately so you can execute a proper spell. It’ll be a total disappointment if all we’re going to do is whip the Move towards the screen over and over again and end up pressing buttons all through out the game. One thing is for sure, the game will support a two-player co-op mode so you can bash and smash along with a friend.
By the way, here’s a bit of tidbit or two for you avid gamers out there. First, obviously you’ve noticed that none of the original developers of the three game franchises namely Naughty Dog, Insomniac Games, and Sucker Punch Productions are directly working on Heroes On the Move. Second, Heroes On the Move is still considered a working title so don’t get all bothered once the game’s released in the market under a different title. And last but not the least, along with Heroes On the Move, Sony has leaked out information that there’s a Sly Cooper Collection coming to PlayStation 3. No further details on this one but there are speculations that it’ll be a compilation of all the PlayStation 2 Sly Cooper game series.
Heroes on the Move is published by Sony Computer Entertainment. It is expected to be released in the later months of 2010 or more likely in early 2011.
