XBLA’s Zeno Clash gets Zeno Rush

Publisher Atlus has announced ACE Team’s intentions of injecting competitiveness into Xbox Live Arcade’s upcoming Zeno Clash: Ultimate Edition.

Zeno Rush, a new game mode put on display in the trailer above, tasks player to clear levels as fast as they can while tracking the best scores via online leaderboards. ‘Speed, efficiency, mastery of the game’s sophisticated melee combat system and the various special moves at the player’s disposal’ are critical, the announcement alerts. The inclusion of new Timehammer weapon should make the job easier though.

The brawler didn’t quite make its planned late March release but is still on for a spring release. A new date will be announced “as soon as possible”.
