If you recall, Legendary was first introduced to us last July when we learned about the game's whole griffin, werewolf, Pandora's Box twist. Are we still interested by the game? Yes, yes we are. We're interested because the whole "killing mythical monsters that come from a box" theme still intrigues us a bit and because the newly released screenshots (gallery below) feature some crazy fun griffin killing. And here at X3F we enjoy a good griffin murder every once and a while. Press release viewable after the break.

First-Person Shooter of Mythical Proportions will be Available on Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION®3 system and PC
Cockpit, Austin, Texas – February 7, 2008 – Gamecock Media Group and Spark Unlimited today announced that 'Legendary' will be available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PC when it releases in Summer 2008. Developed by Spark Unlimited, Legendary is a first-person shooter set in a world torn asunder after all the beasts of myth are unleashed upon it.
"I'm happy to report that the team on Legendary is well on target for a simultaneous multi-platform launch this summer," said Rick Stults, Console Chief for Gamecock Media Group. "It's no easy feat to pull this off on a game of this caliber, but Spark Unlimited is a talented group."
"This is the project we want to be working on and it's shaping up to be something amazing," said Craig Allen, CEO of Spark Unlimited. "Legendary is the type of game we want every gamer, regardless of system allegiance, to get the chance to play. We're taking our time to ensure optimum performance, regardless of platform."
Legendary tells the story of Charles Deckard, an art thief who is duped into stealing Pandora's Box. When he inadvertently opens it, he releases hordes of beasts thought to be fictional – such as werewolves and gryphons – into an unprepared modern world. A full scale war between man and myth begins, and it is quickly complicated by the actions of powerful secret societies. As the person responsible for releasing this terror, Deckard's unwittingly become the only person capable of containing it once more and saving civilization from being destroyed by the terrifying creatures.
