Capcom’s released a press release that should become the model for all press releases. Seriously, it’s the shit. Short, unintentionally funny and about a game we used to deliver newspapers to play in the 80s. We already love 1942: Joint Strike.
1942: Joint Strike Fact Sheet
1942: Joint Strike takes inspiration and influence from the ‘80s 194X’s series of Capcom vertical arcade shooters. The art, sound and gameplay give the player hints of the 194X series, but will standout as it’s own unique entry. Gameplay will essentially be 2D, but the game will utilize a fully 3D engine.
The game takes place during a seemingly WWII like era. Locales, vehicles and weapons have the look and feel of WWII with some stylistic differences. The world in which 1942: Joint Strike takes place is not our own and the events that transpire are not historically accurate nor are they intended to be. This is a world alternate to ours where history and technology developed along its own path.
