December 1, 2008


Broken Aircraft Carrier? Leaking
Fishing Boat? Giant Broken Wedding Cake? Fear not! Hudson’s All-Female Pit Crew
Has You Covered!

Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced the official launch of
Pit Crew Panic!, an all-new, wacky "panic-action" game, available for WiiWare.
This unique game is loaded with frantic fixing fun as the player’s all-female
pit crew repairs a variety of bizarre "WHATSITS" as fast as they can.

Players can choose to play solo and
race against the clock or play against their friends to see whose all-female pit
crew can hammer, screw and wrench the fastest on a giant broken wedding cake!
Inspired grease monkeys can even play online and see whose girls can out-fix
their opponents on an aircraft carrier, a broken toilet, a pot of sunflowers, a
car with a cake under its hood and many more zany "WHATSITS"!

Pit Crew Panic! is full of crazy
frantic action! As broken "WHATSITS" race up to the awaiting pit crew, players
will have the power to assign each of their pit crew girls to different sections
of the broken item that needs to be fixed. Players have to hurry before timers
run out since sections of the broken "WHATSITS" could explode like ticking time
bombs or spew automotive fluids and nearby pit crew girls will get stunned or

Players can also help out their pit
crew girls in sticky fix-it situations by using their Wii Remote just like a
real pit crew tool. Just like any good grease monkey would use a screwdriver,
wrench or other pit crew tools, players can use the Wii Remote to hammer away
with up and down swings or tighten bolts with a turn of the wrist. There is also
a handy tutorial to help players figure out not just how to play the game, but
also how to go as fast as they can when fixing all the wacky "WHATSITS" in the

"Pit Crew Panic! has taken gameplay
with the Wii Remote to fun and creative new extremes," said Sabine Duvall, Vice
President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. "The game has a unique
sense of humor which players will appreciate as they try to use the Wii Remote
as a blowtorch to fix a space station or as a wrench to fix a locomotive."

Pit Crew Panic! is rated E for
Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
