Fights, camera, action: The Showdown Effect introduces its movie cliché cast

Fights, camera, action: The Showdown Effect introduces its movie cliché cast

If you ever played Magicka then you’re familiar with the development methods of the guys at Arrowhead. Their next game is looking just as chaotic (but in a competitive rather than co-op sense), consisting of action movie clichés doing 2.5D side-scrolling battle across a number of similarly film-influenced backdrops.

In this trailer, the developers talk us through some of the playable characters in the game. You can be damn sure the cop who’s one day away from retirement is there. As is the woman seeking revenge for the mysterious murder of his noble-prize-winning scientist father.

The Showdown Effect is coming in early 2013.
