Huntdown is also taking the old school arcade action to players in Asia! Clear River Games is partnering with Epicsoft Asia to localize and release the retail boxed versions in Southeast Asia, Taiwan and Hong Kong. Indie publisher Beep will release the boxed versions in Japan.

Huntdown takes the old school arcade shooter genre to the modern era, with players battling through a dystopian, cyberpunk future as one of three unique bounty hunters. With both Story and Arcade modes to tackle, players pump lead and thousands of one-liners into criminals alone or in pairs, as they traverse the beautifully hand painted 16-bit pixel art backdrop.
