Ty is back and this time Australian development team Krome Studios is breaking away from publisher EA. Ty the Tasmanian Devil 3: Night of the Quinkan is being published by Activision for the Xbox, PS2, GameCube and GameBoy Advance.

Ty 3 takes place not long after the events of Bush Rescue. Ty is brought into the Dreamtime by a bunyip elder. Here he is charged with the task of ridding the world of the bunyip's enemy -- the Quinkan. The Quinkan are a race of evil creatures that live on darkness and suck the joy out of everything around them. In the process of ridding the Dreamtime of the vile villains, when Ty returns to his home -- he finds out that he banished the dark-creatures to his own world.

With his friends enslaved, and Bush Rescue disbanded, Ty must travel across the Outback to gather his team and save his world from the Dreamtime monstrosities. But the boomerang flinging Tasmanian tiger has to work fast. They are working to summon their dark ruler, The Quinking, and if they are successful, then the night-time oppressors will be nearly impossible to beat.

Ty will sport his classic arsenal of 'rangs and bunyips, but he will also be able to tote around a few more surprises. One such asset are chasses. These are essentially boomerangs that will allow you to combine and arrange different combinations of other rangs. For instance, the ultimate weapon, the Megachassis, lets you combine four different types of attacks, making the effects more devastating and more effective. For instance, you can attach ice, explosion, fire and other attributes to make a rang that will do massive damage.

Ty will also take to the sky with gunyips. Basically these are flying bunyips. The gunyips let you fly all over the battle field shooting down enemies and objects. The air-born Quinking won't be much with these flying, flighting machines at your disposal. But you won't just be shooting down Quinkan with your gunyips, you can go head-to-head and dogfight it out with a friend over many of the Ty 3 landscapes.

Watch for Night of the Quinkan to come out this Fall.
