Maximo: Ghosts to Glory's dynamically changing and beautifully constructed 3D environment all loaded with creativity and interactivity. The hero's abilities and skills develop as the game advances. Over 40 power ups andspecial abilities can be found throughout the game. Maximo can use his shield to defend himself or throw it like a weapon. His shield can also be powered up in many ways including everything from attracting lightning to creating tornados. His sword can also be powered up, from a simple increase in size, to calling a meteor storm from the sky, to transforming it into a flaming blade to slice through enemies. A unique character progression system enables players to customize and upgrade their character with new skills, abilities, and weapons based on player preferences. As Maximo ventures out on his quest, his appearance changes as the game progresses. At different times, Maximo may be outfitted to wear a helmet or earn new armor, be magically transformed into "old man Maximo," "baby Maximo," or even find himself stripped down to his underwear after losing his armor. Inspired by one of Capcom's most heralded series ever, Ghosts'N Goblins, Maximo: Ghosts to Glory players will recognize many features from the classic games. As Maximo progresses through his journey he will encounter familiar looking bone towers, red gargoyles, and if he's not careful, Maximo can even lose his armor as he tries to complete an area with nothing but stylish boxer shorts to keep him warm. The game features intense game play, and also injects a clever sense of humor keeping the game entertaining and light-hearted.

The intent was to create a game that's all about fun," says Todd Thorson, director of marketing, Capcom Entertainment. "It's not often a game comes along with such massive appeal. This is due to a unique combination of amazing development talent, a brilliant musical score, incredible graphics and artwork design from one of Japan's most popular artists. Capcom has spared no expense to create this blockbuster."
