Product Details:

The story of Rygar begins with the Island of Argus being plagued by evil Titans. Armageddon has spread over the land, creating chaos as volcanoes, earthquakes, and monsters ravage the countryside. In mankind's darkest hour, a hero rises from the ashes to defeat the Titans, rescue the princess and restore order to the land. The player will become Rygar and his legendary adventure will begin.

The actions of Rygar rely heavily on the use of his almighty Diskarmor, the hero's weapon of choice in the game. The yo-yo like Diskarmor is one of the most important elements of the game. Created by gods, the Diskarmor is not just any weapon, it is an essential survival tool and divine instrument for the brave hero. The spiked razor shield will be used for attack, defense, and transportation.

Rygar's Diskarmor features over 30 distinct action moves that display the awesome power of the weapon and leave the player's head spinning. One of the most impressive moves is the "Snap Attack" where the Diskarmor is used as a whip to grab enemies. Once Rygar has grabbed hold of his foe he uses the Diskarmor to toss the enemy onto another enemy, destroying both with one bad-ass flick of the wrist. The Diskarmor also allows Rygar to hoist himself up and onto different platforms. This defense move is called the "Grappling Hook" and will be used to dodge surprise enemy attacks.

Rygar's adventures will lead him through several different worlds. Each world promises to provide a new adventure for the mighty hero including new enemies and larger-then-life bosses. It will not be an easy journey for Rygar who will go up against over 70 enemies during his epic adventure.

Taking place on an Island in the Mediterranean Sea called Argus, Rygar: The Legendary Adventure, tells the tale of a noble warrior determined to save the Princess Harmonia and bring the Island of Argus back to a state of peace.

For his contribution and bravery during The Great Sea Battle, which ultimately brought the Island of Argus to victory, Princess Harmonia was honoring Rygar in a magnificent ceremony. During the celebration, ravenous monsters called "Titans" emerged from the land, destroying not only Rygar's homeland, but abducting his beloved Princess Harmonia.

In the midst of this chaos deep cracks were formed in the island's surface, creating a dark and mysterious underworld. Before realizing what was happening, Rygar was swallowed by this underworld.

While there, a Goddess approached and informed him that in order to destroy the Titans and save the Princess, he must depend on his almighty Diskarmor, which becomes the essential tool in his quest for victory. Armed with the Diskarmor, Rygar sets out on what will become a Legendary Adventure . . .
