Kung-Fu Strike: TWR Multiplayer Details

By Rebecca Smith,
Qooc Soft's http://www.trueachievements.com/KungFu-Strike-The-Warri....htm is an XBLA old-school beat 'em up influenced by tales of revenge and retribution from ancient China. We've already covered the storyline and other details from the single-player campaign, but what about the multiplayer modes in the game? Well, Co-Optimus managed to get their hands on a preview of both the co-op and competitive multiplayer modes. Here's the lowdown:

The campaign of the game can be played in two-player local same-screen co-op, but the game does not support drop-in, drop-out gameplay. The co-op mode is completely separate, despite the storyline being identical to the single-player campaign. The first player still assumes the role of the game's main protagonist, General Loh, and the second player gets to be his anonymous twin brother. The campaign totals 28 levels, but take this as fair warning: the second player will not be able to earn achievements.

Players will unlock moves as they progress through the single player and co-op campaigns. These moves can then be used in versus mode. The 'My Army' feature is also a unique feature associated with versus mode. Publisher 7Sixty's Josh Hoover explains more:

Basically each player rushes to destroy a vase containing a My Army member. Whoever breaks the vase has the AI character fighting for them. Then when the AI characters/Army are defeated, rather than dying they simply ‘switch sides’ and fight on behalf of whoever defeated them last.
These are the latest screenshots showing the multiplayer modes in action:
