Konami Ships Brooktown High for the PSP

Konami Ships Brooktown High for the PSP

Make the Grade as Big Man on Campus in the First Dating Simulation Video Game for the PSP

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced it has shipped Brooktown High to retail stores nationwide. The first dating simulation for the PSP, Brooktown High lets players enjoy the drama, energy and humor of high school life as they create their own unique look and personality and attempt to take the boy or girl of their dreams to the senior prom.

Immersing gamers in contemporary high school culture, Brooktown High thrusts gamers against a backdrop of cliques, social pressures and flirtatious co-eds. As they create their own unique character, players will have to choose how their gender, clothes and personality impact their perception by the Brooktown High student body. Making friends (or enemies) with distinct social groups such as jocks, preppies, rebels and nerds, each character will have a different high school experience as they take classes, participate in extracurricular events and try to gain the affections of 20 unique students. Their smarts, looks, social skills and more all contribute to an overall attraction gauge that will either make the player a field-playing Casanova or a pocket protector-toting Poindexter.

As players become attracted to different characters in Brooktown High, they can take their potential love interests on dates to bring their relationships to the next step. In between personality-defining conversations, players will participate in fast-paced mini-games such as strip blackjack, dancing and make-out sessions that will make or break their chances for prom night bliss. As each potential suitor has a different personality and interests, players will need to plan out each date to prepare for success, choosing from different locations such as the beach, restaurants and weekend parties, and preparing their favorite pick up lines.

Developed by Backbone Entertainment, a division of Foundation 9 Entertainment, Brooktown High has a suggested retail price of $39.99 and is rated “T” for teen by the ESRB. For more information on Brooktown High, please visit www.konami.com
