Fort Lauderdale FL– August 5, 2008 – Evolved Games announced today that B-Boy for PlayStation®2 computer and entertainment system has shipped to retailers across the country. B-Boy allows players to prove their breakdancing skills as they challenge the world’s greatest
b-boys and girls in a variety of breakin’ competitions.
“B-Boy is completely authentic and offers players the opportunity to become premiere breakers,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “It’s really an experience all its own, encompassing everything dating back to the roots of the scene through today’s best dancers. The game’s flow and production value create an experience that gamers will really appreciate.”
B-Boy puts players right into the shoes of an up-and-coming breaker as they progress from neighborhood street battles all the way to high-stakes world championships. Real-life b-boys from around the world have been involved with the creation of this game, and players get to go toe-to-toe with them as they build their steps and up their rep. With over 800 moves in the game, all motion-captured from the experts, anyone can look totally sick as they pull off power moves, freezes, and flair-driven combos.
