News0r has published an interview with Raven Software's Chris Palmisano, in which the production coordinator answers several questions about the newly released X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse. Check it out:
Q: What new features can gamers expect from this title? And what has been the hardest part of development of this game?
A: There are an incredible number of new features. Here is a brief list: gamers can play as the enemies from Legends 1, we have added in-game power switching, more than doubled the number of powers, introduced non-linear game play, and added online functionality. Of these new features Online play was the most difficult to integrate from a development standpoint, but also the most exciting addition to the game play. The multiplayer experience in Legends 1 was a huge hit, and we knew that to take this to the next level, online functionality was a must. Now gamers can play the full story mode online as well as danger room training missions, and skirmish modes. We are very excited to bring support online play on the Xbox, PS2, PC and PSP, and have even added exclusive online content.
