Electronic Theatre ImageParadox Interactive, a publisher of videogames in a world gone mad, has found an old VHS tape for The Showdown Effect in its cousin’s garage and has released it for the world to see. The newfound “Meet the Cast” biography video introduces players to four of the 80′s/90′s action-movie archetypes starring in the upcoming title, bringing players a behind-the-scenes look at Paradox’s cinematic multiplayer 2.5D combat title, featuring commentary from Arrowhead action stars Johan Pilstedt and Emil Englund, as well as new footage taken from the videogame.

In a combination dev-diary/preview/feature/explosion video, fans can meet Dutch McClone, a time-travelling Austrian searching for his identity; Lance Koboldski, a grizzled cop with only one day until retirement; Hailey Skye, a plucky girl genius who’ll stop at nothing to uncover her father’s killer; and Shur Foo, a gentleman who seems to believe there’s no problem you can’t solve by punching it. A look at what went into these characters, and the videogame itself, can be watched below, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on The Showdown Effect.
