Ignition Entertainment to Publish Blue Dragon
Plus for Nintendo DS

Property Slated to Release Across North
America and Europe in March 2009

Ignition Entertainment Ltd. in conjunction with
AQ Interactive invite gamers around the world to "Awaken the Power Within" when
Blue Dragon Plus for Nintendo DS breathes fire across North America and Europe
in March 2009.

Directed by Hironobu Sakaguchi, Blue Dragon Plus
features character designs by Akira Toriyama, and a soundtrack by Nobuo Uematsu.

Currently a top-rated show on Cartoon Network in
the U.S., the story of Blue Dragon centers on a young boy named Shu and several
of his friends who possess the ability to control phantom shadows that mirror
the actions of their masters. In Blue Dragon Plus, one year has passed since Shu
and his companions defeated the tyrannical remnant of the Ancients, Nene. In the
midst of the battle, the world split in two and now consists of a myriad of
“cubes” that exploded from its depths. King Jibral notices a mysterious cube in
the distance suddenly start to move violently, and from it he sees the Shadow of
a Balaur, a three-headed dragon, emerge. The enormous and sinister Shadow is
just the beginning of the new turmoil and devastation to come.

"We are thrilled to be able to take Blue Dragon
Plus to market,” said Ajay Chadha, President of Ignition Entertainment.
“Out-of-the-box thinking and effective marketing are the cornerstones of our
success, and this acquisition relays our standing commitment to that. Clearly
our partners have as much faith in Ignition as we have in their products!"

“Ignition Entertainment has proven to be an
excellent partner for us and we look forward to working together with them again
with the launch of Blue Dragon Plus in North America and Europe next year,” said
Tomoyuki Takechi, CEO of AQ Interactive Inc.
