Second title in co-publishing
partnership between Marvelous Entertainment USA and XSEED Games Brings Charming
Wii title to the US market

Marvelous Entertainment USA and
XSEED Games jointly announced today that the second videogame title in their
co-publishing partnership agreement will be the fantasy adventure RPG title
formerly known as “Project O”, Little King’s Story. Designed and developed by
some of the most respected names in the gaming industry, Little King’s Story
will ship in the US market Winter of 2008, exclusively for Wii.

“Little King’s Story has an art
style that is very ‘story-book’ in look, and that we feel will be universally
loved,” stated Yasuhiro Wada, Managing Director of Marvelous Entertainment Inc.
“The game has a fairy tale quality that will intrigue and delight gamers the
world around.”

“Little King’s Story is a game we
felt very strongly about offering to the United States,” remarked Jun Iwasaki,
President of XSEED Games. “The game truly reflects the high quality gaming
experience, uniqueness, and game design creativity that we look for, with the
ability to appeal to a wide audience while providing enough depth for seasoned

Little King’s Story begins with the
story of young boy named Corobo. Shy, and without many friends, Corobo stumbles
upon a mysterious, powerful crown while walking in the forest near his village.
He soon discovers that the crown grants him the ability to charm any person, and
make them follow his orders. Suddenly, Howzer, the bull-knight, appears,
informing Corobo that he is now King of the village, and he must not take this
responsibility lightly. Returning to his sleepy village, as a King instead of a
shy little boy, Corobo begins a quest to turn his small hamlet into a noble,
fantastic kingdom.

The storyline, visual look, and
lyrical music of Little King’s Story, work in concert to transport players to an
interactive, enchanting, fairy tale world. By combining gameplay elements from
life-simulation, real-time strategy, and adventure genres, the many aspects of
creating a vast kingdom come to life! As King, players will manage and involve
their townspeople in the goals of creating this new territory; enlist them to
dig for treasure, build new buildings and otherwise better their community. Of
course, leadership is a two way street, so as King, players will try to conquer
rival nations to create a single unified kingdom, as well as grant the requests
of townspeople at whim. With the Wii Remote as a royal scepter, this Winter
Little King’s Story allows players the chance to be the best king in the world!
