Wesley Snipes' iOS Game Released

August 11, 2011 -

Wesley Snipes proves that you don't have to be free to do anything with his new iOS game, Julius Styles: The International. Snipes is currently serving three years in a federal prison for tax evasion, but that hasn't stopped him from being creative (Snipes' projected date from prison is July, 2013).

His new game, Julius Styles: The International, is an iPad and iPhone action adventure game developed in conjunction with Lapland Studio, Elstree Studio Productions, Red 27 Films and Maandi Media Holding. The $2.99 game puts players into the rather unglamorous world of economic espionage. Working for an elite group of businessmen called the 'Assembly,' players attempt to divert global funds into the groups' collective pockets. As Julius Styles, a young man who recently graduated from MIT and has lost his way, players join the group as "an economic hitman, an expert in persuasion, blackmail, and assassination." Julius will use his repertoire of dark skills to infiltrate governments, businesses, and other shadowy organizations to do untold amounts of wickedness.

"Evolving from the military special ops, security specialist backgrounds of characters I’ve played in the past, this guy was trained by the streets of today, to be the international player and dot com super spy of the future," said Wesley Snipes in a press release about the game issued today. "Fall back, Nino and excuse me, Mr. Bond! I’d like you to meet Mr. Styles, Julius Styles: The International."

"This marriage, my vision of a hardcore action movie combined with Lapland’s implementation of a kickass video game, is going to hook you up and leave you thirsty for more," added Snipes. "Episode 1 is just the beginning. I’ve been waiting ten years for a creative opportunity like this!"

The first episode of Julius Styles: The International is now available for $2.99 in the App Store for iPhone and iPad. For more information, check out www.laplandstudio.com.

Andrew EisenImagine if Nintendo started charging for the Super Guide feature it has in some of it's games. That's what the MGS microtransactions sound like to me.07/05/2015 - 12:36pm

Andrew EisenFinished Gone Home last night. Really enjoyed that game. Very different. Definitely not for everyone though.07/05/2015 - 11:00am
InfophileI know the ZE series was in the red in Japan, but international series boosted it to profitability. That may not mean it's more profitable in the west, but it does mean ZE3 wouldn't exist without the western market.07/04/2015 - 7:54am

Andrew EisenThat was quick! Pretty accurate cosplay of the new Ghostbuster uniform and proton pack: https://twitter.com/mirabellemusing/status/61673135125394227207/03/2015 - 6:23pm
Matthew Wilson@mast I dont know, but I do know it got a cult fallowing here.07/03/2015 - 6:22pm
MastermuneWasn't the Zero Escape series more popular here than in Japan?07/03/2015 - 6:19pm
Matthew Wilson@mast given the game was revealed in the US, I wouldnt be shocked if it was released at the same time.07/03/2015 - 6:15pm
MastermuneI don't trust the big AAA worldwide simultaneous releases though.07/03/2015 - 5:57pm
Mastermune@Infophile I have come to the conclusion that smaller games like zero escape, JRPG's and the like are actually worth preordering sinc they are limited quantities and since they usually release in japan first we know if there are any issues.07/03/2015 - 5:56pm
Infophile@Matthew! Awesome news. I'd preorder on that shout alone if I didn't have a policy against preordering anymore.07/03/2015 - 5:16pm
Matthew Wilsonzero escape 3 was announced today.07/03/2015 - 4:21pm
Matthew Wilson@pnx I am guessing a ddoss since that is what happened to neogaf, but sony needs to do a investment in psn as a whole. steam is still the most reliable and fastest digital platform I use.07/03/2015 - 3:06pm

Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.vg247.com/2015/07/03/digital-extremes-trespasser-keystone-pc/ if true, this is funny and embarrassing for Digital Extremes. companies need too have better security.07/03/2015 - 2:57pm
Matthew Wilsonhttp://www.gamespot.com/videos/the-point-destiny-the-hardcore-gamers-slot-machine/2300-6425852/ this is very good, and well researched.07/03/2015 - 12:41pm
InfophileOther features to become standard: The ability to remap controls however the hell I want. Quicksave at any time (especially for handheld and mobile games). Plus everything Andrew said07/03/2015 - 10:43am
InfophileRegion-freeing becomes tricky for games with a strong online component though, especially when the servers are run by different branches in different regions.07/03/2015 - 10:41am
InfophileI'm in favor of getting rid of region-locking for any purchased games. I can understand an exception for free, ad-supported games, as many ads are only relevant in certain regions, and it's a ridiculous hassle to get ads for all regions.07/03/2015 - 10:40am
