Evasive Space Begins the Countdown for Launch on WiiWare

New Space Adventure Announced by YUKE’S Company of America

The fate of the heavens is in your hands in Evasive Space, YUKE’S Company of America and High Voltage Software’s latest space action title for Nintendo’s WiiWare™ service announced today, set to launch this coming January. Capturing the casual pick up and play nature of past WiiWare favorites combined with the creative use of the Wii Remote™’s infrared pointer, pilot your rocket ship on a wildly dangerous interplanetary mission to save the stars.

You’ll be guiding Konki on timed and collection-based missions through 20 stages of mazes and obstacles in five different environments spanning treacherous terrain including asteroid belts, planetary rings, astro-caves, and large space stations. Hazards surround your ship at every move - enemy fire, asteroids, black holes, tight corridors - while ship upgrades tempt you at every turn. Compete with up to three of your friends in local multiplayer matches that will determine which pilot has the quickest and most skilled navigation abilities…

Backstory

Twinkle, twinkle, little star, how I wonder WHERE you are … The universe is going dark and it’s up to you Konki, Stellar Guardian, to put things right. Dr. Dark Matter and his roving band of space thieves have stolen many of the Constellation Stones that make up the heavens. Some stones have been sold to unscrupulous space types while others were lost during the getaway. Whatever the situation, you must come through. Suit-up, power-up, and live up to the task at hand. Recover the lost Constellation Stones and once again bring light to the night sky.

“We’re seeing some great digital distribution methods that allow us the opportunity to deliver fun games to consumers at an affordable price,” said Nate Fitt, Marketing Manager of YUKE’S Company of America. “Evasive Space is our debut on the wonderful WiiWare platform for the world’s most popular game console, the Nintendo Wii™ system. The game will stay true to the nature of the platform by offering an engaging and addictive space adventure that both casual players and hardcore gamers will appreciate.”

“This is our first game published by YUKE’S Company of America, and we’re looking forward to kicking off our relationship with the success of Evasive Space,” states Kerry J. Ganofsky, CEO of High Voltage Software. “We’ve had great experiences developing and distributing games through WiiWare, and we hope that our newfound cooperation with YUKE’S will deliver some great new games and generate positive results for both of our companies as we take advantage of new digital distribution opportunities.”

Assets for Evasive Space will be coming soon, so stay tuned for the countdown to liftoff!

Evasive Space has been rated “E” for "Everyone" with Mild Fantasy Violence by the ESRB and will be downloadable for 1,000 Wii Points.
