Product description

Queen from B4 to E7, checkmate. While normally the game would be finished here with little fanfare, BATTLE VS. CHESS takes the moment of victory a step further. The queen gracefully glides across the game board towards the King, a victorious smirk adorning her face. As she approaches the King's square her hands begin to faintly glow then suddenly plumes of fire spring forth from her outstretched hands and engulf the King leaving nothing more than a pile of ashes on the square formerly occupied by one of the competing rulers of the checkered kingdom. Now that's checkmate!

BATTLE VS. CHESS is based on the simple yet ingenious concept of creating a fusion between professional chess software and upbeat, combat oriented game mechanics, complete with richly animated game pieces. At the outset of a match things seem quite basic: a 3D game board pits two opponents against each other in a seemingly ordinary game of chess. The game board itself is set in one of six available environments, each with its own unique landscape and presentation features. Traditionally recognized game pieces have been given a facelift as hulking stone golems and beastly chimaeras take the place of the typical rook and knight pieces respectively. The groundbreaking introduction of vivid 3D conflict animations and optional action integration elements provide a very special breath of fresh air to the classic game of chess. Employing ChessBase's world renowned FRITZ! chess algorithm software, even the most experienced chess experts will be presented with a daunting challenge.

Manufacturer's Description

Developed by Gaijin Interactive, Battle Vs Chess aims to bring the classic into the modern age, without removing the essential gameplay that has made it popular for centuries. Familiar chess pieces are brought to life, with players seeing the spectacular results of their actions in their quest for domination of the board.

Traditional white and black armies have evolved into the powers of light with their brave knights in shining armour, or the wicked dark army of demons and beastly golems. Each piece is intricately animated and as players move them around the board they spring into life ready to wage war. If a square is occupied by an enemy unit, they enter into a brutal clash that sees the foe removed from the board in bloody combat.

Another evolutionary element is the addition of the optional Action Mode. If selected, instead of entering a scripted animation when attacking, players challenge their opponent in a beat-‘em-up style arena. Using a variety of weapons, fighting techniques and combos, players must best their opponent in a fast-paced flurry of blows and special moves –adding a whole new meaning to the phrase ‘check mate’.
