Jet Li's wire-fu hits PS2

Rise to Honor climbs into view

Sony's "Jet Li-influenced" martial arts adventure Rise of Honor has stuck its head out from cover long enough for us to get a good look. The game, which is in development at Sony's Foster City studio, features a 360-degree combat system choreographed by Cory Yuen - who managed choreography for Lethal Weapon 4, The One and Kiss of the Dragon - which incorporates fast-paced attacks, counters, blocks and 'super moves' (presumably the gravity-defying ones). Handily, these have all been motion-captured by Jet Li, whose countenance is also clearly at use on the model of the game's hero, Kit Yun (as demonstrated by these early shots on JetLi.com). As Yun, players will be charged by dying Chinese gang boss Chiang with passing a message onto his daughter in San Francisco. This causes endless trouble for Kit, who ends up high-kicking his way through 10 locations, including Hong Kong and San Francisco, in the hope of delivering the message.

Rise of Honor is due out in the US this "fall". SCEE has yet to mention it.
