The 2001 arcade title, Virtual On Force, is heading to Xbox 360 with all new HD visuals and Online play through Xbox Live. Despite the last Virtual On title hitting via XBLA, this new title is actually a full retail release.
If you are familiar with the arcade version, this release is a port of the arcade’s 7.7 version. This version includes a handful of modes including 2 on 2 leader battles where players must destroy the leaders of each team to win the match and a co-op boss fight mode where 2 players take on huge bosses.
One other mode included in the home console port will be a Mission mode. This allows players to take on single player missions with an AI partner who you can control via commands. You can improve the partners’ AI through practice missions, and curve him toward a offensive style or defensive style. But if you choose to, you can also play this mode co-op with a friend.
In addition to online gameplay, the 360 version Virtua On Force will include 4 player split screen multiplayer as well.
Virtual On Force is set to hit Xbox 360 this Winter in Japan. The title has yet to be announced for North America or Europe.
