Sine Mora to Feature Mechanical Boss Designs by One of the Most Prominent Japanese Anime Creators, Mr. Mahiro Maeda

Sine Mora , the beautiful dieselpunk shmup by Digital Reality and Grasshopper Manufacture, is one of the most visually stunning titles coming to Xbox Live to date. Beyond its thrilling, high-flying gameplay, much of Sine Mora ’s greatness is thanks to the intricately designed boss battles derived from the very concept work of Mahiro Maeda, the famous Japanese anime creator. Mr. Maeda’s credits include directing Blue Submarine No. 6, Final Fantasy: Unlimited and The Animatrix (segment: " The Second Renaissance Parts I and II"), as well as designing art for Neon Genesis Evangelion, Magic User’s Club and plenty more.

Internationally, he’s first and foremost known for the animation sequence in Quentin Tarantino's Kill Bill Vol. 1 .

Co-developed by Grasshopper Manufacture and Digital Reality, and published by Microsoft Studios, Sine Mora is dieselpunk shoot 'em up that provides a unique take on the genre, where time is the ultimate factor. Mixing classic shooter sensibilities with next-gen presentation, Sine Mora is a gorgeous shmup that appeals to both hardcore and casual gamers alike. Coming exclusively to XBLA, Sine Mora features over 60 combinations of planes, characters and time manipulation devices to complete every beautifully-crafted stage with scaling difficulty. All of this is set to an epic score of soaring heights, composed by Akira Yamaoka, acclaimed for his works on Shadows of the Damned and the Silent Hill series.
