Yes , you heard it right Platform Nation. I just got home from the EA’S Winter and Spring Review 2009 and that was one of games that is headed our way. The story picks up where the movie will leave off. The game is slated to have a total of 20 missions allowing players to re-create and re-live the greatest moments of the film. G.I. Joe has very simple controls and has a single screen co-op mode that you and and friend can play. There are no plans for online multiplayer for this game. G.I Joe will also feature 12 G.I. Joe characters each with unique abilities and weapons.
G.I. Joe will be available Summer 2009 on all platforms (Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, DS Wii, PS2). I was able to watch the demo on the Xbox 360 and it brought back many memories of the old G.I Joe figures straight through to the cartoon. What really caught my eye when I was watching the demo it seemed like a throw back to something like Contra. I can’t wait to give this one a hands on demo for myself.
