Point Blank 2 with GunconNamco Bandai Games has revealed that it will produce a Nintendo DS rendition of its popular PlayStation and arcade lightgun shooter series, Point Blank. The game is being prepped for a Summer 2006 launch.

Point Blank DS will feature more than 40 different touch screen action sequences, requiring quick and precise taps with the stylus. Players will shoot down clay pigeons, aliens…anything the crazy Namco Bandai designers can think of.

Versus mode enables players to challenge friends using the wireless feature needing only one game card. Brain Massage is an option where players can shoot through various stages while the game analyzes the abilities and gives feedback.

Freeplay gives players the ability to select any stage at any time to challenge their best score. And Games Museum is a group of new stages adapted from Namco’s classic coin-op arcade series. From: IGN.
