Xena: Warrior Princess (N64)

SKU: N64-XenaWPTOF-22


Talisman of Fate is a 3D fighting game based on the Xena: Warrior Princess television series starring Lucy Lawless as the titular heroine. Ten characters are playable, equally divided among the forces of good and evil. Representing the "good" are Xena, Gabrielle, the clumsy Joxer, master thief Autolycus, warrior Ephiny, and sage Lao Ma. Those opposed to Xena and her band include goddess Callisto, god Ares, Gabrielle's nemesis Velasca, Roman Emperor Caesar, and boss character Despair.

Character possess a distinct primary weapon and use special attacks that mirror those of their television counterparts. A total of four game types are available: Quest Mode, Vs. Mode, Roster Mode, and Practice. Quest Mode involves trying to win an ancient artifact by defeating all fighters in succession. Each fight consists of two rounds and two players can join forces against the computer challengers. Vs. Mode supports up to four players simultaneously. Teams can be customized so that one character fights three, or two fight two. Computer-controlled characters can also be added to the mix.

Roster Mode is similar to Vs. Mode with one key difference: players can choose multiple characters before battle. If a player loses a character in a fight, the next character on the roster will take his or her place until none remains. The final mode, Practice, lets players hone their attacks and basic moves as they compete against a powerless computer opponent. Xena: Warrior Princess offers three difficulty levels and adjustable round settings. Players can also customize the controls and save this configuration to a Controller Pak. In addition, battle-hungry warriors can "feel" each blow with the Rumble Pak accessory and experience high-resolution visuals with an Expansion Pak.
