ATLUS U.S.A.
, INC TO RELEASE PUYO POP FEVER FOR THE NINTENDO DS IN APRIL 2005

SUPER HYPER
TURBO EX DX+ a PUZZLE ACTION TO THE EXTREME!

Irvine , CA,
February 23, 2005
– Atlus U.S.A. , Inc., a leading publisher of
interactive entertainment, announced today its plans to publish Puyo POP
FEVER
, the classic action-puzzle game scheduled to ship in April 2005 for
the Nintendo Game Boy® Advance. Puyo puzzlers rejoice as the fever returns on
the Nintendo DS with exclusive features not found on any other system! With its
unique Touch Screen control and 8-player simultaneous puzzle action with a
single Game Card, this is the definitive version of the classic puzzle game.

"Hey Gail have you
seen this game!", said Bill Alexander, former Project Lead turned puyo-popping
junkie at Atlus U.S.A. , Inc. "It’s Puyo POP FEVER for the DS!"

"Yah we just licensed
it and we’re putting it out in the spring."

"Dude, did you know
that you can literally play this thing forever!?"

"Um yeah, it does
have that very cool endless mode, which the last time I checked means forever."

"Oh and did you know
that you can play up to 8-players with a single Game Card!? Dang! How can you
beat that!" If I meet someone at the airport and they have a DS and I have my
DS, we could play while we were at the airport because they don’t even need
their own card and I would just upload the game to them, just like magic! That
is soooo cool!

"Yah that’s what
single-card download play means? You alright, Bill?"

"Hey, Gail can you
finish this without me? I gotta show the testers my new puyo techniques…"

"Well there you have
it folks, we may have lost a Project Lead, but at least you’ll be able to get
your hands on this incredibly fun puzzle game when it hits stores this spring.
And hopefully you’ll keep your sanity in the process."
