What’s going on, PS3 playaz? I’m pleased to announce that Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 is now available on the PlayStation Store for only $9.99! The spiritual successor to the classic Commando and Mercs series arrives with the frenetic arcade-action you remember, combined with 3D HD graphics and 3 player online and local co-op. (You can even ride tanks and jeeps together!)
History note: Where did the name “Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3” come from? Well aside from our penchant for extremely long game titles (see the entire Street Fighter series), the name is taken from the original 1985 Japanese coin-op, “Senjo No Okami”, which means, you guessed it, Wolf of the Battlefield.
Here’s an exclusive gameplay clip:
And here’s a cool wallpaper featuring the new Commandos, Wolf, Fox and Coyote:
Ok, I know many of you are disappointed that the game doesn’t come with a Street Fighter HD Beta. We did everything we could to try to make it happen, but bottom line, we’re working hard to make a game that you’ll be extremely happy with. As an added bonus, we’re giving you the opportunity to play Commando a week before the XBLA version releases. Finally, for all the PlayStation Street Fighter fans, we are planning some cool stuff for you, so stay tuned.
But I digress, Commando 3 is a great pick-up-and-play game for you and your friends, with that old school, arcade style flavor. You also won’t be disappointed with the graphics since this game makes fantastic use of the PS3 shaders, depth of field, dramatic lighting and particle effects. For a downloadable game at $9.99, you can’t go wrong! Try it out.
