Marvelous and Ignition Bring the
Darkness of LUX-PAIN for Nintendo DS To North America March 2009

Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a UTV
Enterprise, a worldwide publisher and developer of videogames, in conjunction
with Marvelous Interactive Inc. and developer Killaware, announced today that
Lux-Pain for Nintendo DS™, the all-new text-based adventure game, will set its
“eye” on North America in March 2009.

Showcasing the work of hot Japanese
animator Robin Kishiwada, whose credits include cover illustrations for Eureka
Seven series, Lux-Pain features music composed by Kenji Ito, well-known for the
music in SaGa, Mana, and Culdcept series’, and Yasuyuki Suzuki, of Operation
Logic Bomb, Tail of the Sun, and Space Invaders Extreme fame.

Lux-Pain is set in historical
Kisaragi City, a town plagued by mysteries from small mishaps to murders – with
no logical explanation as to why these events occur. It seems “Silent”, a worm
born through hate and sadness, has infected humans and forced them to commit
atrocious crimes. The hero’s parents are victims of such crimes. To avenge his
parents, Atsuki goes through a dangerous operation to acquire Lux-Pain in his
left arm, a power so strong that his left eye turns golden when using it to seek
and destroy Silent for good.

"Here at Ignition, we are a focused
team of passionate gamers who are always on the look-out for unique, quality
games," said Ajay Chadha, President of Ignition Entertainment. “We are delighted
to have the opportunity to work with Marvelous again to bring the profound
adventure of Lux-Pain to gamers everywhere!”

“We are very excited to be working
with Ignition Entertainment to bring Lux-Pain to the U.S." said Yasuhiro Wada,
Managing Director of Marvelous Entertainment. “Lux-Pain is engrossing and
blood-chilling and we hope gamers will become addicted to Atsuki and the
darkness of Kisaragi City.”
