E3: Konami unveils Zephyr

Tornado game for XBLA/PSN/WiiWare.

Konami has unveiled XBLA, PSN and WiiWare game Zephyr: Rise of the Elementals.

In it you control a tornado and swirl through trailer parks and cities tossing cows and tractors, earning big points for big destruction. The more points you earn the bigger your tornado gets - a bit like Katamari Damacy, we suppose.

There are time and point challenges stretched across 11 stylised levels and light-hearted story. The approach is apparently quite sandbox and there is co-op play for you and a friend.

Zephyr is being made by Loose Cannon - the developer formed from ex-Sucker Punch (Sly, inFamous) veterans - and is "coming soon", according to the Konami website.

Pop over to our Zephyr: Rise of the Elementals gallery for the first shots.
