ATARI LAUNCHES "SUPER BURNOUT" ON JAGUAR 64
SUNNYVALE, Calif. — July 5, 1995 — Earlier this morning Atari Corp. released "Super Burnout," a fast-action cartridge title for the 64-bit Jaguar system.
In this crash-and-burn arcade-style game, motorcycle players compete head to head with friends, computer-generated racers, or against the clock.
"Super Burnout" has 60 frame-per-second break-neck action graphics and intense realism of motorcycle racing. Players criss-cross the globe to compete on the most intense tracks in the world. All eight racetrack locations feature awesome scenery and the hottest music soundtracks.
The key to a player's driving success is to choose a custom sports bike that provides them with the winning edge. "Super Burnout" offers numerous motorcycles for players to choose from, each with individual style and powerful driving capabilities. The two-player "versus mode" applies split-screen details, which allows competitors to view their racing progress all the way to the checkered flag.
"Super Burnout is a great addition to our library of software titles," said Ted Hoff, president of Atari Corp.'s North American Operations. "It is a fine example of the high-quality, competitively priced software we continue to bring to our Jaguar 64 consumers."
"Super Burnout" players can race day or night and choose the number of laps in one of four racing modes. "Super Burnout," rated KA (appropriate for kids through adults), is available for sale now for $59.99 (suggested retailed price). Additional Atari Jaguar summer releases will include: "Ultra Vortek," "White Men Can't Jump," "FlipOut!" and "Rayman." These are just a few of the many great titles for the Atari Jaguar library, which will approach 100 titles by the end of 1995.
For over 20 years, Atari Corp. has provided consumers with high-quality, value-priced entertainment. Atari Corp. markets Jaguar, the only American-made, advanced 64-bit entertainment system. Atari Corp. is located in Sunnyvale.
