Konami's Katamari Damacy
clone, Zephyr: Rise of the Elementals
has just spun itself an easier, more straightforward title: Tornado Outbreak
. The game is the first from Loose Cannon Studios
, made up of Sucker Punch veterans. While the pedigree of the studio is quite impressive, we found the game rather uninspired at E3, missing the charm that makes Katamari
so lovable. Perhaps Tornado Outbreak
will blow away our dampened expectations; this trailer reveals new elements (like bosses!) that we didn't have a chance to experience in our previous hands-on.
You'll be able to give Tornado Outbreak
a whirl when it launches on Wii, Xbox 360 and PS3 this September.
