KONAMI SHIPS ELEBITS: THE ADVENTURES OF KAI AND ZERO FOR NINTENDO DS
Sequel to Popular Original Action Series Hits Retail Stores Nationwide
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero has shipped to retail stores nationwide. Originally released for Nintendo Wii™ in 2006, the sequel to the popular original action series will now be available for the first time on the Nintendo DS™.
In Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero, Kai's father creates a magical bus that whisks Kai and Zero through mysterious worlds where they face a series of challenging quests to find, capture and befriend the magical Elebits. Elebits serve as energy sources in a far-off world where energy resources have been depleted. New to the Nintendo DS™, players use each of the Omega Elebits' special powers to help solve puzzles, reveal hidden paths, freeze flowing water, turn darkness into light, levitate rocks, walk on water and much more. The 50 Omega Elebits, which are completely customizable by the player, increase in strength the more they are interacted with, providing the player with incredible abilities to solve tasks.
Using the stylus on Nintendo DS™, players control Kai's movement by touching different areas of the screen. As players encounter other characters and objects, they can touch these objects and interact with them. As an added bonus, gamers can compete head-to-head using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection™ and battle up to four friends simultaneously in an all out Elebits capture battle.
"With Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero, Konami has stayed committed to providing gamers with some of the best content in the market," said Anthony Crouts, vice president of marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "The engaging storyline and setting, coupled with the interactive controls of Nintendo DS™, make for a fun, addicting, action title that delivers amazing adventures and challenging puzzles."
Elebits: The Adventures of Kai and Zero for Nintendo DS™ is rated 'E' for 'Everyone' by the ESRB and will be available for $29.99. For more information, please visit: www.konami.com/elebits
