The newest partnership between Todd McFarlane Entertainment and our friends at Konami is progressing nicely. The McFarlane's Evil Prophecy video game is currently slated for PlayStation2-only release on June 15.
Based on the popular first series of McFarlane's Monsters toys developed by legendary comic book and action figure creator Todd McFarlane, this third-person action/fighting game brings players into the terrifying world of McFarlane's Monsters.
Using original McFarlane-designed "Monster Hunters," up to four players can battle through treacherous deserts, perilous jungles and foul swamps in an effort to stop Dracula, Frankenstein, the Werewolf and their evil cohorts from corrupting the world.
Teamwork is key in this game and how you play each Monster Hunter will determine your overall success. McFarlane's Evil Prophecy guarantees nonstop action and thrills, including players armed with swords, magic spells and other unique weapons. Gamers will also be treated to unlockable interviews and artwork from Todd McFarlane.
The storyline: To Hans, the bizarre headlines in the newspapers were all too familiar. It was many years earlier that Hans came to possess a most peculiar book filled with bizarre verses of broken poetry telling of the fall of mankind. At the time, Hans dismissed the book as nothing more than an old collection of mythic poetry. But now, as headline after headline echoed the contents of the centuries-old tome, even Hans could not deny that there was more to the old book than simple myths and legends... it was a prophecy. What's more is that if current events were to continue on the path outlined by this evil prophecy, all of humanity would be doomed. Shaken by this prospect, Hans immediately called upon his various contacts in government and tapped into his financial resources to assemble a team of monster hunters. Three warriors were selected for their unique balance of skill and power: Logan Blackheart, a notorious pirate who had recently lost his ship to one of the unexplained incidents in the Atlantic, Delphine de Soras, a skilled marksman from the mountains of France and Sundano, a noble warrior and shaman from the jungles of Africa. With the help of these three brave warriors, Hans swore to put an end to the evil prophecy once and for all.
For today, enjoy the new screenshots and other media; we'll have additional information -- plus a chance to win a game -- in the coming weeks as we get closer to the game's June release.
