Monaco Revealed For Release on XBLA

Monaco Revealed For Release on XBLA

Ocean's 11, top-down style!

Written by kbgray27 on 17 October 12 at 19:29

Pocketwatch Games has announced, exclusively to Joystiq, that Monaco, the four-player co-op heist-action game designed by Andy Schatz, will finally be arriving on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, after gamers "have been waiting for three years to play [it]".

The designer describes Monaco as being "like Ocean's 11". The game and movie are both similar and dissimilar in different ways. Playing alone, or with up to 4 players in total, gamers will have to plan and execute a daring heist on various game levels. The difference between Ocean's 11 and the new game lies in the viewing perspective, because the game takes place in a top-down fashion.

A short gameplay video has also been released. The footage probably does a better job of explaining the gameplay approach than I ever could. Furthermore, Monaco will feature several different character classes, each with specific skills, to allow gamers to successfully conduct their heist. Two of those skillsets have been confirmed. Firstly, the Hacker will be able to knock out the security systems, in turn allowing the Muscle to blow down walls and make entry easy. You can see those skills in action below.


Majesco, the game's publisher, has not provided any release date or pricing details for Monaco yet.

The concept sounds great but we'll see how the actual game turns out. Still, I'll be keeping an eye on this. I'm always a fan of games I can bust out with my friends.

This is good news! I played this at PAX, it's pretty good, a lot more fun in co-op.

Kind of reminds me of Warp a little bit. Definitely sounds interesting and looks fun.
