KONAMI PUTS THE PEDAL TO THE METAL WITH
STREET SUPREMACY FOR THE PSP™ SYSTEM
Features High-Octane Street-Based Racing, Wireless Multiplayer Action And Numerous Licensed Vehicles
REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – December 20, 2005 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced Street Supremacy, a team-based racing game, will be released on the PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system in early 2006. Developed by Genki, Street Supremacy is designed to bring the super-charged world of street racing to life. Adding to the realism of the unique RPG-style racing gameplay is a compelling wireless multi-player battle mode and numerous licensed vehicles with unique enhancements.
Stepping away from the norm, Street Supremacy features innovative game modes that set it apart from other titles in the racing genre. This includes the unique 'Team Battle' mode, which doesn't utilize the traditional first, second and third place finishes. Players win the race by depleting their rival's Spirit Points (SP), which are decreased by contact with walls, cars and by falling behind other racers. Divided into 15 areas, two teams compete to dominate the game map through individual races between the different players. By earning points for each victory, players can judge how they stack up against their rivals and cherry-pick their competition from the player roster as they look to seize territories. Win and increase team loyalty, recruit defeated riders and increase your supremacy on the streets while being upgraded in the rankings. But lose, and learn quickly that there are no points for second place in street racing.
In addition to Street Supremacy's stunning racing action, the cars in the game can also be modified to add an edge to the duels. The game's authentically modeled Nissans, Mitsubishis and Subarus can all be enhanced with new exhausts, paint jobs and spoilers. These all prove vital in shaving seconds off the lap times, while stickers and fancy lights can also be used to enhance the car's aesthetics, adding a layer of gloss to an already entertaining racer video game. Additionally, Street Supremacy also takes advantage of the PSP system's wireless functionality by letting gamers compete against a second player in the Vs. mode for a gripping head-to-head racing experience.
