Majesco Announces My Hero Brand for Nintendo DS

Step into the Shoes of Real-Life Heroes Including Astronauts, Firefighters, and Doctors; First Two Titles To Launch This August

Majesco Entertainment Company today announced a series of aspirational Nintendo DS games under the brand name My Hero. In this new adventure simulation franchise, players experience firsthand the heroic acts of the role models they look up to - a daring astronaut, a courageous firefighter, and a life-saving doctor - by completing a variety of challenging missions relating to each profession. My Hero: Astronaut and My Hero: Firefighter are expected to launch in August, while My Hero: Doctor will release this December. Produced by Game Life, each of the My Hero brand games has a suggested retail price of only $19.99.

"Every generation has its own champions, but certain professions, by their very nature, consistently produce the real-life heroes that youth always look up to," said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. "Majesco's new My Hero product line lets players experience what it's like to be the brave and committed role models they admire within a fun, Touch Screen adventure format."

My Hero: Astronaut
In My Hero: Astronaut, players take on the role of a new recruit in the United States of West on a quest to lead their team to victory by conquering space first before their rivals do. On an expedition to Mars, players will pilot a Space Rover, Space Shuttle, and Lunar Lander as they blast off through over 40 different missions. Activities include landing on a space station, repairing satellites, destroying meteors on a collision course with Earth, and much more. For every mission successfully completed, players also earn medals and receive special gameplay bonuses.

My Hero: Firefighter
The Nintendo DS stylus becomes a hose, axe and extendable ladder in My Hero: Firefighter. Players must drive fire engines swiftly and safely through crowded city streets and react quickly to house fires, chemical explosions, and forest fires in 13 hazardous missions. By putting out raging fires and courageously saving people and animals, players earn awards for their bravery, move up the ranks to Captain, and acquire upgraded trucks and equipment. Players also learn real fire safety tips and how to react appropriately in dangerous situations.

My Hero: Doctor
In My Hero: Doctor, players take on the role of a doctor's apprentice as they manage 10 major medical emergencies by utilizing the microphone and stylus as an all-in-one medical tool. Players will treat and cure patients by using real medical equipment to help scan for fractures, inject medication, and apply a defibrillator. By successfully maneuvering the ambulance around obstacles on their way to aiding the sick and saving lives, players unlock upgrades and earn awards as they progress in their medical career.
