January 11, 2007 - Today, Electronic Arts finally announced two new versions of its Godfather game: The Godfather The Don's Edition for PS3 and The Godfather: Blackhand Edition for Nintendo's Wii. While both games are based off of the previously released The Godfather game for PS2/Xbox/360, each game offers up an entirely new experience. The Godfather The Don's Edition includes The Corleone Expansion Pack complete with new gameplay and missions, while The Godfather Blackhand Edition makes use of the Wiimote's unique capabilities to provide an enhanced combat experience.
Both games offer games entirely new ways to climb the mafia ladder from Soldier to Don as you wrench control of the New York underground from your mobster rivals. Players can choose from either the Enforcer or Operator paths, each with its own unique perks and abilities. The Don's Edition also includes the new Shipyard and Rail yard transportation hubs for gamer to explore and ultimately dominate.
The Godfather The Don's Edition takes advantage of the motion-sensing capabilities of the Sixaxis controller for the PS3. Gamers must wrestle with their controllers in order to execute hand-to-hand combat maneuvers in the game. The Godfther Blackhand Edition further expands on this idea by offering gamers full Blackhand Control. Players must make real life gestures with the Wiimote and the Nunchuck to beat down on the opposition, or point directly at the screen for pinpoint firearms accuracy.
Developed by EA Redwood Shores, both new versions of the Godfather will be released this March.
