SFX360 previews Duality ZF.

Latest preview of Duality ZF by Buzzkiller of SFX360.  Some highlights:

This Summer, schmups (shoot'em ups) as you know it on Xbox Live Community Games will change forever. Xona Games presents Duality ZF, a top-down 2D shooter featuring some of the most intense action ever seen.

The best part about Duality ZF has to be local multiplayer. Up to four players can control eight ships in dual play. Just think about how many shots that would be on the screen.

If for some reason one of your teammates is shot down, then that person's power-ups will be split amongst the other players and the down player(s) can be revived at the start of the next stage...

Duality ZF is our upcoming dual play Xbox 360 Shoot'Em Up*.  Price: 400 Microsoft Points.  Release date:  Summer 2009.

*Also known as: Shmup and 2D Shooter
