Nintendo 3DS For "Green Lantern: Rise Of The Manhunters"

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment report that their debut title for the Nintendo 3DS handheld system is "Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters".

The action-adventure game will also be released in 3D, as well as 2D, for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.

The Nintendo 3DS version of the game is designed specifically to take advantage of the system’s stereoscopic 3D capabilities and deliver multi-plane graphics that delve players further into the 'Green Lantern' universe.

"...'Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters' is inspired by Warner Bros Pictures’ upcoming 'Green Lantern' motion picture, bringing the enduringly popular DC Comics superhero to the big screen for the first time, starring actor Ryan Reynolds in the title role as 'Hal Jordan', newest member of the 'Green Lantern Corps'.

"In the videogame, gamers can utilize an arsenal of amazing constructs and take flight across the deepest parts of the universe to restore intergalactic order by wielding the ultimate weapon: the 'Green Lantern Power Ring'. Gamers playing the Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 versions will also have the option to join forces with a friend to play as Hal Jordan or 'Sinestro' to battle the 'Manhunters'..."

"'Green Lantern: Rise of the Manhunters' gives players the chance to experience the world of the 'Green Lantern' mythology in an interactive way, going beyond the events of the film and comic books," said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.
"The game is the first to center around DC Comics' Green Lantern franchise and we're excited to give fans the opportunity to experience the power of the ring with engaging gameplay."
