New Medal of Honor: Rising Sun Details

Xbox News | From Pearl Harbor to the Philippines, EA storms the Pacific with Medal of Honor: Rising Sun.
Step into the boots of a Marine Corporal, survive the devastating attack on Pearl Harbor, and drive the Japanese Army from the Pacific in Medal of Honor: Rising Sun. Developed by Electronic Arts Los Angeles, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun creates an immersive and authentic WWII experience in either single-player or multiplayer modes. Medal of Honor: Rising Sun will be available for all three consoles in 2003.

Set for the first time in the Pacific Theatre of Operations from 1941-1944, Medal of Honor: Rising Sun gives players a sense of the courage it took to fight the Japanese from Pearl Harbor to the shores of the Philippine Islands. Players take the role of Marine Corporal Joseph Griffin, as he survives the attack on Pearl Harbor, leads the assault of Guadalcanal, and finally rescues his brother from a Japanese Prisoner of War camp in the Philippines. Armed with his wits and a variety of authentic weapons, it's up to players to stop the Japanese war machine in its tracks. The game also features an all-new co-op multiplayer mode, so players can team up and battle the Japanese forces together. Along the way, players will earn awards and medals for their meritorious service in defeating the enemy.

As with the original Medal of Honor, the producers sought council from numerous outside sources to make certain the game is as historically authentic and realistic as possible. EALA continues to work closely with the Congressional Medal of Honor Society to ensure Medal of Honor: Rising Sun reflects the ideals and integrity of the prestigious Medal of Honor. In addition, Capt. Dale Dye, who served as military technical advisor on the previous titles in the Medal of Honor franchise, continues his efforts with the Medal of Honor: Rising Sun team to ensure the authenticity of the game.
