Los Angeles (August 29, 2006) – Putting a grenade in players' hands and smiles on their faces, Codemasters confirmed plans today for the return of Cannon Fodder, the classic and hilarious combat gaming franchise, in spring 2007.
The all-new Cannon Fodder is now in development and will be wreaking its unique war-torn havoc on the PSP (PlayStationPortable) system. The title will update the gameplay of the beloved 16-bit originals, combining fast-paced strategic action with the series' devilish sense of humor that earned it the tagline, "war has never been so much fun."
For those who haven't been through Cannon Fodder's unique military training, players command their troop of soldiers, individually or as a group, in a diverse range of on-foot and vehicle based combat missions while generally blowing stuff up and causing untold amounts of military mayhem.
The fast paced action will be presented in a unique and distinctive visual style that's unmistakably Cannon Fodder. Far from being just a pretty tribute, this new version builds on the classic tactical combat gameplay and introduces a raft of new features, such as the ability to call in air strikes, perform radar sweeps, as well as unleashing a host of new weaponry including flamethrowers and sniper rifles.
As the conflict unfolds, the action is reported live from the war zone by the new FTV channel, giving players a better look at the game's pintsized protagonists. The wireless capability of the host consoles gives rise to another exciting innovation: four-player link play in deathmatch as well as co-op scenarios.
Prepare to be dropped behind the most entertaining enemy lines with Cannon Fodder coming in 2007 for the PSP system. For more information and to sign up, visit www.codemasters.co.uk/cannonfodder.
