publisher and developer of video games, today revealed further details
of P.N.03, a bold approach to the action genre for the Nintendo GameCube?.
Set within futuristic sci-fi environments, players clash with complex
enemy robots and mechs in a mercenary operation to rid a colonial planet
of a menace that has turned the region into a killing field. Take control

femme fatale has a dark past: CAMS killed her family and her plan is
to get even. Players must dodge and weave through the heavy barrage
of firepower on the planet while trying to blast the technological terrors
into scrap metal.
