Konami Ships Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom

DJ and Pandora Make Their Nintendo DS Debut with Twisted Touch Screen Action and Frantic Mini-Games

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced it has shipped Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom to retail stores nationwide. The first adventure for Death, Jr. (DJ) and Pandora on the Nintendo DS™, the game seamlessly blends precise platforming with frantic touch screen action as the unlikely pair of heroes battle through a science fair gone horribly wrong.

Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom follows DJ and his friend Pandora as they try to rescue their friends Smith and Weston, Seep and Stigmartha from their magically mutated school after a science experiment unleashes the fearsome evil demon Moloch. Controlling both DJ and Pandora as they progress through the game, players will use a unique combination of touch screen gestures and button presses to unleash a variety of melee attacks. DJ and Pandora can also collect an arsenal of ranged weapons including twin pistols, shotguns and explosive C4-equipped hamsters. In addition to combat, players will use advanced platforming maneuvers through the game’s fully 3D levels, grabbing onto ledges and swinging from poles to reach incredible heights.

Marking the debut of competitive head-to-head multiplayer action to the Death, Jr. series, Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom features intense mini-games that let up to four players battle it out wirelessly across two unique game types. In Reaper Ricochet mode, two players bounce C4 hamsters off of graveyard headstones to see who can destroy the most fixtures before their hamster detonates. In War mode, players split up into teams of two and engage in tactical shoot ‘em up action in a number of side-scrolling stages.

Developed by Backbone Entertainment, a division of Foundation 9 Entertainment, Death, Jr. and the Science Fair of Doom has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and is rated “E10+” by the ESRB. For more information on the Death, Jr. franchise, please visit www.konami.com
