Tecmo’s take on third person shooters goes beyond using guns as weapons. Syd, the macho protagonist in Quantum Theory, literally throws Fillena, the female lead, as a weapon.
Watch and see. It’s at the 1:30 mark.
Fillena has some kind of sword attack and looks like an interesting character that could make Quantum Theory stand out in the swarm of third person shooters, but you can’t control her in the single player story mode. You can only throw her. Quantum Theory has an eight player online mode, perhaps Fillena will be a playable character there. Swords vs. guns go?
Quantum Theory will be published under the new Tecmo Koei America brand in March.
