KONAMI SHIPS STEEL HORIZON TO
RETAIL STORES NATIONWIDE

Build Your Own Fleet and Topple
the Axis Threat in an Original World War II Naval Strategy Game for Nintendo DS

All hands on deck! Konami Digital
Entertainment, Inc. today announced it has shipped Steel Horizon for the
Nintendo DS™ to retail stores nationwide. An original World War II naval
strategy game that blends turn-based and real-time elements, Steel Horizon lets
players assemble their own fearsome armada and use advanced maritime tactics to
rule the seas and discover the mysterious truth behind the origins of the war.

Steel Horizon gives players full
control over a fleet of high-powered warships as they travel across the high
seas to engage in battle. With battleships, destroyers, submarines, aircraft
carriers and more at their disposal, players are given an incredible degree of
flexibility in customizing their fleet. As each ship controls and attacks
differently, players can strategize to counter any enemy formation, using
submarines to launch surprise attacks or pounding away from a distance with the
18” batteries of a battleship. Using a unique combination of real-time and
turn-based gameplay elements, ships can be moved at regular intervals or
individually at any time for further control over the battle plan. As they
progress through the game’s single player story mode, virtual admirals will
learn more about the origins of the war and discover that the Axis alone may not
be the biggest threat to world freedom.

Featuring local wireless play, Steel
Horizon lets two players go head-to-head in a battle for sea supremacy. Across
nine unique multiplayer maps, several different game modes are available for a
nearly limitless combination of strategic combat options.

Steel Horizon carries a suggested
retail price of $29.99 and is rated “E10+” by the ESRB. The game will be
released for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system this spring.
