In yet another surprising announcement today, ZEN Studios unveiled that it is currently developing yet another all-new original title that has absolutely nothing to do with pinball. First came the rhythm-based fighting game, Zen Fu (now officially entitled Kickbeat), and now we have CastleStorm, a brand new 2D/3D projectile warfare/tower defense/RTS game. Featuring medieval characters and weaponry, CastleStorm pits vikings against knights in battle with both standard close combat and long range weapons, like swords and arrows, and some more interesting weapon selections like Morningstars, Apple Grenades, Homing Eagles and more. And there are a few spells at your disposal too. And flying sheep…
CastleStorm will also include a construction editor, allowing you to make your own custom castles to defend. Construction will require a lot of concentration on your part if you want your castle to be something worth defending, as the choices you make while building will determine what troop types and resources will be available to you while in the heat of battle. CastleStorm is scheduled to release for download via Xbox Live Arcade, the Playstation Network and for PC some time this year. ZEN Studios will also be showing off the game at E3 next week.
