The ESRB rating for Namco Bandai's Aero-Cross
(first seen in Australian and German ratings
) includes a content description that confirms our suspicions about it being a follow-up to the surreal, arcade foot-racing game Metro-Cross
. It's a futuristic racing game about a running man, just like Metro-Cross was, and places obstacles in front of that runner like "mines, hurdles, and rolling barrels."
New to this game: robots that administer a shock to the racer, "resulting in a shocking effect that causes the racer's body to twitch." That's progress! Aero-Cross
was rated for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, likely as a downloadable game.
