Confirming our suspicions that there's plenty more to wring out of World War II, EALA has announced a brand new Medal of Honor adventure for PS2, Xbox and GameCube due out in late 2003. Taking a break from chilly Europe this time, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun will take place in the Pacific Theatre (sorry, 'Theater') of Operations on the Japanese front, and will be split into two chapters. Chapter one, due out this year, will see players control Joe Griffin as he fights side-by-side with brother Donny until they're separated in a dogfight during early fighting. Griffin continues unabated, and we'll catch up with Donny's adventure in the second chapter sometime during 2004.
Reports suggest we'll get a proper announcement with oodles of detail sometime today, perhaps even with news on the series' PC future. Unfortunately, we get the impression that's sometime today, EST.
