In the game's story mode, you take control of main character Jack, who comes to the game from Platinum's Wii title MadWorld. You'll lead Jack in exploration of Altanbra. Your main activity involves clearing missions that are given to you around the city. You can freely select whether or not you want to take these missions on, but clearing certain missions will advance the story.
Jack is a battle expert with special forces experience who makes use of a dual bladed chain saw. He's part of an organization called Chasers, who take on missions that the police can't solve. He's 75% cyborg. He was once a heavy smoker, but has quit.
Jack's chainsaw is named "Gator Tooth." It's what's known as a "Killer Weapon." The game's characters all have these special weapons which they're particularly adept at using.
Those characters include Big Bull, Zero and Sasha, all of whom were first introduced when Anarchy Reigns was first unveiled. In story mode, these characters serve as rivals who face off against Jack. "
So it's basically MadWorld, except in a new world, with a new combat system, and a new graphical style. Sounds cool. I wonder if it'll be an open-world game, or if you'll just choose missions from a list or a map or something.
