Empire Interactive Ships Hello
Kitty: Big City Dreams to North American Stores

Hello Kitty and Pals Ready to
Make Their Nintendo DS Debut

Empire Interactive, an international
publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software and a subsidiary
of Silverstar Holdings, today announced that Hello Kitty: Big City Dreams for
Nintendo DS™ has shipped to North American stores. Primed to be the must-have
holiday gift of the season for Hello Kitty fans of all ages, this game takes
Hello Kitty and her friends to the Big City for some fun adventures.

Hello Kitty: Big City Dreams hits
stores November 11, 2008 for an MSRP of $29.99. Under the terms of a multi-year
distribution deal between Atari and Empire Interactive, signed in August 2008,
the title will be distributed exclusively by Atari, Inc. in North America.

“When you work with a renowned
global icon like Hello Kitty there must be a balance between meeting the
expectations of the loyal fanbase while opening the experience up to newcomers
to the franchise,” said Karim Farghaly, Vice President of Sales, Empire
Interactive. “By working closely with Sanrio and allowing our developer to add
the perfect touch to the game, we are confident that Hello Kitty: Big City
Dreams will be the premier, must-have title for girls, Hello Kitty fans, and DS
adventure gamers this holiday season.”

In Hello Kitty: Big City Dreams,
players take the role of Hello Kitty, guiding her through her new life in the
Big City. For the first time, Hello Kitty steps away from her beloved Sanrio
Town in hopes of realizing her dream of one day moving from her modest ground
floor apartment into a big city penthouse. Not to worry though, Hello Kitty will
not be alone; her Sanrio Town pals like Keroppi®, Badtz-Maru®, Tuxedosam™, My
Melody®, and many more will be joining her in the Big City. The adventure will
have fans exploring a full 3D city and playing a variety of games with their
favorite Sanrio characters, earning friendship points to help Hello Kitty
fulfill her Big City dreams.

By completing mini-games like
Restaurant Rush, Arcade Hero, and Destination: Dance, Hello Kitty will earn
friendship points which she can use to unlock new outfits and new themes to
customize her apartment with, as well as ride the bus or train around town to
see all of her old friends. The games’ difficulty level will increase along the
way, leaving it up to the player to help Hello Kitty move up floor by floor,
with the ultimate goal of reaching her dream penthouse in the sky.
