CHATSWORTH, California, April 29, 2002 In need of a little
barbaric behavior? Well rest easy because Titus Software Corporation is preparing to
launch Barbarian on the Nintendo GameCube and the Xbox videogame system from Microsoft
Get ready for some serious action as all of your favorite Barbarians
hack, slash and pillage their way through your living room. Oh, the carnage
Oh, the excitement!
Barbarian is not your average fighter, nor is it your average RPG.
Barbarian is completely redefining a new genre of gaming. Barbarian is a hybrid title
coupling action/adventure, fighting, and role-playing elements. Choose your warrior from
the Mighty Dagan, Princess Keela or one of 8 other playable characters. Travel through the
world of Barbaria battling against the wrath of Zaugg, as you navigate your way on a
majestic journey. Sure there are head to head battles, but that is merely where the game
begins. With a rich storyline and detailed quest mode you discover your characters true
motives. With multiple story branches, Barbarian offers plenty of depth. While your
Barbarian is armed with unique weapons, you will find that there is more than one way to
bash an opponent. Not only can you uproot trees and toss coffins at your enemy, but also
you can actually pick up the AI thugs and swing them around as a weapon!
If standard weapons arent your thing, there is always the option
of using magic and Rune attacks to hand your foes the beat down. Still looking for
How about massive levels and arenas spanning several screen lengths wide and

Along your journey you will need to advance your characters unique
attributes by collecting and using skill points. By upgrading your character in certain
areas like strength, magic, defense and so on, you will become a more seasoned Barbarian,
which is absolutely necessary to become victorious.
After upgrading your character you may save to a memory card and play
against your friends for some real barbaric action. If playing against one friend
