SEGA of America, Inc. and SEGA of Europe ltd. today announced that the classic arcade game After Burner has now returned for a new generation of gamers. After Burner Climax features fast and frantic feats, putting you in the cockpit of the world’s top fighter jets. Players will dodge planes, rockets and bullets while trying to target multiple on-screen enemy aircrafts. Built for all skill levels, everyone will be able to take to the air and blaze through a branching storyline with over 20 stages. After Burner Climax will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and on PlayStationStore for the PlayStation3 computer entertainment system.

Developed by SEGA AM R&D 2 division, famous for titles such as Virtua Fighter and Outrun, After Burner Climax is based on the latest arcade version in the franchise. Players will square off against a plethora of AI opponents as they dodge, shoot, and barrel roll their way to victory in a variety of the game’s environments. With the Climax Mode, players can activate slow motion, which makes avoiding rockets and bullets easier, and increasing accuracy whilst aiming for those harder to hit targets.

In other news, the classic After Burner: Black Falcon for PSP (PlayStationPortable) systems will be available for download via the PlayStationStore on February 4, 2010. This adaptation is compatible with all PSP (PlayStationPortable) systems (including the PSPgo system). Fly nineteen different real-world officially licensed jets during the course of the game’s 24 supersonic missions, and double the firepower in 2 player co-op mode.

After Burner Climax will be available on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 and  PlayStationStore in Spring 2010. After Burner: Black Falcon is available on PlayStationStore on February 4, 2010.
