SANTA CLARA, Calif., (February 4, 2009) – Leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced Invincible Tiger: The Legend of Han Tao™, a highly stylized hand-to-hand action game for Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and the PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system’s PlayStation®Network.

Han Tao, General of a Thousand Victories, has pledged his life to protect the legendary Star of Destiny, a mysterious artifact recently stolen by the Evil Overlord.
