Full release on both titles below

San Mateo, Calif. — January 19, 2010 — Capcom®, a leading worldwide developer and publisher of video games, announced today that Dark Void™ has shipped to retailers. Gamers have multiple ways to become lost in the Void as the game is available for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and for Windows PC. Dark Void is rated T for Teen by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) with a suggested retail price of $59.99 for the console versions and $39.99 for Windows PC.

Dark Void is a science-fiction, action-adventure game published by Capcom Entertainment and developed by Airtight Games. Trapped inside a universe known as “the Void,” Will is a pilot dropped in the midst of an on-going battle between “gods” known as “the Watchers” and a human rebel group known as “the Survivors”. Will soon finds himself struggling along side the Survivors as they fight to prevent the Watchers from destroying Earth.

Combining a unique blend of aerial dog-fighting, with fast-paced ground combat, Dark Void creates an exciting third-person shooter experience. Bringing a whole new sense of tension and thrill is Dark Void’s unique vertical combat system. Players now must worry about enemies from above as well as what’s in front of them. Equipped for fierce in-air combat with a powerful jetpack, players will hurtle through the Void at blistering speeds while shooting down anything that gets in their way.

Dark Void Zero:

Capcom’s legendary lost project, Dark Void Zero, is now available to download on DSiWare. The never-before-released game straight from the Capcom vault is hitting one day before its next-generation sequel, Dark Void, arrives on store shelves for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.   Before you get your hands on the new high-flying adventure, check out Dark Void Zero and see where it all began for 500 points on DSiWare.

To commemorate Dark Void’s humble origins, Capcom commissioned the recreation of the original 8-bit classic, now re-titled “Dark Void Zero”, on the DSi platform. Players take on the role of Rusty, the first human born in the Void.  With the aid of Nikola Tesla and his trusty jetpack, Rusty embarks on a quest to prevent the evil alien race, “the Watchers”, and their minions from taking over Earth in this retro 2-D action-adventure.   The game also features an authentic 8-bit soundtrack by famed composer Bear McCreary, the man behind the music of Dark Void and Battlestar Galactica!
