Midway has released the first significant round of new media for their upcoming action shooter, Stranglehold. With John Woo at the helm, we weren’t surprised to find Chow Yun-Fat performing all sorts of aerobatic killing maneuvers against hapless thugs. He twists, he dives, he swings from chandeliers and he loves dual-wielding pistols. Hong Kong cinema fans will be all over this.
The media added includes 9 screenshots of Chow Yun-Fat, as well as the official game trailer (.wmv 26mb) that is edited more like a movie trailer. For a detailed list of what Chow will be doing and where he’ll be doing it, check out the game details here. Stranglehold is set for release this upcoming Winter on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
