Listen up grasshopper. Your kung-fu is weak. But we can change that, we can make you an Invincible Tiger, an unstoppable kung-fu robot. Namco-Bandai has announced a brand new downloadable game that looks eerily similar to Rag-Doll Kung-Fu. It's called Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao and it features a two player co-op story mode!
Invincible Tiger has players teaming up to take down the Evil Overlord's (really..that's the best you can do for a bad guy name?) army. Players will share a zen meter as they master their kung-fu combos and take down the bad dudes.
There's no release date set yet, but we'll let you know of any developments. Anything with co-op and kung-fu is ok in my book. To hold you over we've posted eight new screenshots.
Thus ends the lesson.
