KONAMI SHIPS LOST IN
BLUE 2 TO RETAIL STORES NATIONWIDE
Return to the Desert Island Oasis and Live Off the Land in this Sequel to
the Smash Hit Survival Adventure Game
Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.
today announced it has shipped Lost in Blue 2, exclusively for the
Nintendo DS™, to retail stores nationwide. Building upon the innovative survival
adventure gameplay introduced by the first game in the series, Lost in Blue 2
lets players take on the role of two shipwrecked friends as they brave the
elements, battle ferocious wild animals, and gather valuable items that will
help them successfully escape the island and return to civilization.
Lost in Blue 2 follows Jack and Amy, young friends who are washed ashore
on a tropical island when their cruise ship capsizes at sea. While planning
their escape, the two must adapt to life on the island, collecting food and
natural materials that can be fashioned into items. Players can choose to play
as either Jack or Amy, each with their own set of unique survival skills. As
they explore the island, Jack and Amy will need to control their hunger, stamina
and thirst levels to ensure that they have enough energy to make it though each
dense forest, rocky mountain pass and sandy beach. Featuring open-ended
gameplay, players can actively choose to progress the game’s storyline and try
to escape to civilization or remain on the island to explore its large areas,
battle its native wildlife and make use of its natural materials.
Taking advantage of the Nintendo DS hardware, Lost in Blue 2 makes
extensive use of the system’s touch screen and microphone to immerse players in
all aspects of Jack and Amy’s adventure. In addition to popular mini-games from
the original Lost in Blue game with expanded touch screen and microphone
functionality such as cooking and tool crafting, players will be able to enjoy
new activities such as scuba diving, carpentry and archery. Players will even
take on the elements themselves, dealing with the destructive forces of tidal
waves, earthquakes and hurricanes as they seek shelter and avoid disaster areas.
Lost in Blue 2 lets up to four adventurers enjoy the game together via
local wireless connection, testing their skills in each of the game’s mini-games
to see who has the superior survival skills. Using the Nintendo DS game sharing
feature, only one game card is needed to play Lost in Blue 2 with others.
Lost in Blue 2 has a suggested retail price of $29.99 and is rated “E10+”
by the ESRB.
