Infinite Space

System: Nintendo DS Release date: 26/03/2010

From PlatinumGames (critically-acclaimed creators of Mad World) and Nude Maker (the team behind the legendary Steel Battalion) comes Infinite Space, a sci-fi RPG epic on a direct  trajectory to set the stars ablaze, exclusive to the Nintendo DS.

Heavy is the burden of command; in the vast blackness of space, the choices a commander makes will decide the fate of countless lives. Not all were born to carry that burden... but there is one who shows promise and he may be the only one who can bring about peace between the warmongers of the stars. His name is Yuri.

Infinite Space tells the dramatic tale of Yuri's journey from boyhood to manhood - a monumental coming of age tale full of action and adventure, set against the backdrop of a universe on the brink of bloody interstellar conflict. In the role of Yuri you'll command a fleet of up to five ships on a search for an artefact of such power it could change the course of history.

One of the most important steps in successfully commanding any armed force is to know your weapons: your ships and their crew. With over 100 spaceship blueprints and 200 customisation modules to choose from, your  first job will be to design, construct and outfit your fleet. The ships will be your homes as well as carrying your soldiers into battle and you need to make sure that you have the right hardware for the job, no matter what space throws at you. As commander it'll also fall to you to enlist crew - handpicking recruits based on their individual skill sets and assigning them to the roles they will work in most effectively. Fleet management requires attention to detail and an understanding that subtle changes can mean all the difference in combat: your priority is to stay alive and a good ship and crew are half the battle.

The other half is decided by your choices and whether you can keep your head when faced with the armadas of authoritarian oppressors or when outnumbered by hordes of malevolent cosmic marauders. It's in honing your tactical skills, laying down strategy and responding swiftly and effectively to threats. It's in keeping a cool head under fire and meticulously timing attacks for maximum efficacy. It's in knowing that to show hesitation in the face of your adversaries will only bring about your own destruction.

Will you take the helm of the flagship and face your enemies head on or will you initiate evasive manoeuvres? Will you be a shining star in the darkness or be lost in the blackest reaches of the cosmos? Only you know for sure if you're up to the challenge of Infinite Space.

  • Travel between star systems solo following Yuri's story or engage in interstellar skirmishes against a friend with Multi-Card Play.
  • Infinite Space offers over 70 hours of gameplay comprising exploration, fleet organisation and gruelling, real time spaceship battles.
  • A wealth of ship blueprints and components to choose from mean the customisation options for your fleet are almost infinite.
