KONAMI ANNOUNCES LOST IN BLUE®: SHIPWRECKED!
Popular Survival Adventure Game Series Debuts
on New Platform
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced that the Lost in Blue®
franchise is hitting game consoles for the first time with Lost in Blue®:
Shipwrecked! (working title), scheduled to debut on Wii™ this Fall. The latest
installment in the hit franchise, previously available only for Nintendo DS™,
will offer a survival adventure brimming with colorful 3D graphics and
maximizing the interactive capabilities of Wii™.
In Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked!, players will find
themselves stranded on a mysterious island filled with lush forests, ancient
ruins, and an active volcano. With the help of trusty pets and new friends,
players can explore the mysteries of the island to find a way home, or make a
new life for themselves and stay forever. Vibrant 3D graphics make the island
environment, weather systems, and various items more life-like than ever. An
island tutorial with a greater focus on exploration enhances the accessibility
for new players.
Taking full advantage of the Wii Remote™ and
Nunchuk controls, Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked! allows players to realistically
practice survival tasks, with more than 40 mini-games including fishing,
carpentry, fire-making and other all-new cooperative games. Dependable pets
provide players with an added entertainment feature by playing music or dancing
throughout the game.
"Building upon the success of the previous Lost
in Blue DS titles, we wanted to give fans an extended experience in the first
console version of the series," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing
for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "Bringing the series to Wii™ will ensure
fans receive the most exciting, immersive survival adventure game to date."
Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked! is scheduled to launch
for Wii™ in Fall 2008.
