Jump Into the Cockpit of a Veritech Fighter With Robotech: The New Generation, Coming to Mobile Phones From Airborne Entertainment
LOS ANGELES, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- For over 20 years, science-fiction and anime fans have watched from the sidelines as the battle for Earth raged in the skies above. Now, Airborne Entertainment opens the cockpit and offers up the controls for the ultimate ROBOTECH gaming experience in Robotech: The New Generation, coming to mobile phones this May in the best shoot-'em-up game ever to be available throughout the U.S. carrier galaxy.
The long-awaited mobile iteration of the perennial favorite anime series combines strategic behavior and character selection with classic top scrolling gameplay. Featuring 20 distinct levels, five environments and three playable VERITECH ALPHA fighter ships, Robotech: The New Generation is sure to engage the hard-core fan as well as the casual gamer.
For over 20 years, ROBOTECH has helped to lay the groundwork for anime's acceptance outside its native Japan, earning a distinction as one of the greatest science fiction epics of all time. Based on the solid foundation of compelling narrative and characters -- along with incredible action sequences -- ROBOTECH has spearheaded the genre's foray into theatrical and home video imports, specialized anime television networks and a full spectrum of influences on domestic pop culture ... including this summer's hotly-anticipated Michael Bay blockbuster: Transformers.
"Robotech is a brand that is rich in anime tradition, with a long standing history of success in all forms of entertainment," said Kim Senn, Vice President, Product of Airborne Entertainment. "Our team has been extremely pleased to work with the Robotech brand to create this latest entry into the acclaimed Robotech universe that is sure to satisfy even the most die-hard enthusiasts."
"Airborne has a great track record of taking a developed brand and faithfully adapting it for mobile entertainment. We are extremely pleased with how Robotech has been represented, and feel that fans and gamers alike will indeed embrace Robotech: The New Generation," said Tommy Yune, Creative Director of Harmony Gold.
