News: The Total Overdose series is getting pocket-sized.
Total Overdose for the PS2 and Xbox was one of the pleasant surprises of 2005. It was a fun mix of action and humor that did the "GTA formula" just as good as a GTA game. It also sold pretty well, so it's not surprising that Eidos is moving the series to the PSP sometime in the future.
Dubbed "Chili Con Carnage", Ramiro Cruz returns to take on Cesar Morales' drug cartel in what we assume will be some kind of port of the PS2/Xbox original because Morales was killed in Total Overdose. Or maybe it is a sequel and he's a zombie drug dealer! Hey, it worked for James Bond...
?Eidos gave us the challenge to create the FASTEST and most GUN CRAZY action game to be released on a handheld machine. And we have delivered Chili Con Carnage? a burning hot Mexican shooter with the biggest explosion frequency and the highest takedown rate you will ever experience on the PSP? ? said Chris Mottes, CEO, Deadline Games.
Chili Con Carnage will feature 19 missions across seven locations and it will include the quirky humor, varied weaponry and Spicy Special Moves the original game was known for. CCC will also include several multiplayer, something that was very much missing from Total Overdose.
We'll have more soon.
