[prMac.com] Seoul, Korea - Brandnew Boy, Oozoo's freshly launched 3D hand-to-hand combat game for iOS just made its English debut in the US App Store. Brandnew Boy topped iTune's overall charts in Korea during the previous month, and focus groups that previously previewed the non-English version of the game expressed great anticipation for its English release. Now the development team at Oozoo will see if Brandnew Boy is prepared to conquer another continent.
Oozoo announced early on that Brandnew Boy would be utilizing Unreal Engine, one of the most popular and powerful options for creating breathtaking 3D action via video game. In Brandnew Boy, Unreal's groundbreaking technologies are used to great advantage, immersing gamers in a non-stop beat 'em up with beautiful vistas, huge arenas of play, free movement, and of course, incredible combat sequences. Brandnew Boy is unapologetically action oriented, pitting players against legions of baddies and startlingly creative and intimidating bosses.
Brandnew Boy couches its action in the intriguing narrative of Rookie, a young boy who has lost his memory and is stranded in a mysterious and hostile world. His only source of information in the beginning of the game is a semi-functional robot television named Ona-ona. Rookie may not remember who he is, but he clearly has some combat training. Whenever he has a moment to think between battles, he must attempt to piece together his past in order to build some future apart from the bloodthirsty conflict that consumes his present.
Brandnew Boy is available now in the iTunes App Store, for $3.99. The game is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad - see the App Store for specific compatibility requirements.
