Infogrames Announces Taz: Wanted

Over-The-Top Antics And Demolition Bring Tazmanian Devil To Life (January 07, 2002)
That spinning, whirling, all-teeth- no-inhibitions destruction machine the Tasmanian Devil, is twirling onto the Xbox video game system from Microsoft and PlayStation2 computer entertainment system in Taz: Wanted from Infogrames, Inc.

"Taz is one of the most beloved Looney Tunes characters and his dynamically wild personality is a perfect fit for the world of video games," said Nancy MacIntyre, vice president of marketing for Infogrames' Beverly label. "Taz: Wanted will bring the Tasmanian Devil to life for players. He'll be able to fully interact with his environment, whirling and destroying everything in his path."


In Taz: Wanted, Taz must break out of the Sam Francisco Zoo after being captured by Yosemite Sam -- President of ACME Corporation. Then he must make his way to Tasmania in order to rescue the She-Devil and save the world from the power-hungry Yosemite Sam, all the while avoiding Sam's "Taz catchers" and destroying all of the 'Taz Wanted' posters that he can find. Taz is an absolutely unstoppable, whirling, twirling, hurtling, landscape-eating, perpetual-motion machine, constantly faced with the threat of the "Taz catchers." But luckily for Taz, there are a multitude of ACME items to find throughout the worlds that provide him with plenty of power-ups and special energy.

The levels in Taz: Wanted have a free-roaming architecture, which allows Taz to explore, investigate, or destroy them in any way that the player sees fit. Taz is aware that he is being watched and will interact with the player in this interactive cartoon concept game. There is also a storyline, dialogue and plenty of slapstick humor to remind the player of their favorite Looney Tunes cartoons.
