NAMCO BANDAI Games’ Trioncube Goes Gold

NAMCO BANDAI Games’ new puzzler for the
Nintendo DS is fueled up and ready for take off later this month

Leading video games publisher and developer NAMCO
BANDAI Games America Inc. announced today that Trioncube for the Nintendo DS has
gone gold. Trioncube is a challenging and highly addictive puzzle game that
tests your intelligence and reflexes as the player races across the galaxy to
rescue the princess from the clutches of the evil Hellmetal. Trioncube is set to
be released to store shelves nationwide on February 20, 2007.

“Trioncube will offer players a thrilling and
action packed puzzle game that will have them coming back to their DS time and
time again.” Yoshi Niki, NAMCO Director of Localization at NAMCO BANDAI Games
America Inc, said. “Its distinct visual style and captivating gameplay will make
it tough to put down.”

Different than most puzzle games, Trioncube puts
players into the role of captain for a spaceship called Penko. The Penko is used
for traveling to the far ends of the galaxy to rescue the kidnapped princess
from the evil Hellmetal. Unfortunately, heroism is no simple task and as captain
you must be prepared for long trips across the galaxy and have the necessary
fuel for the Penko to reach your goals. The objective is to stack a series of
3×3 blocks called Trioncubes. The larger the chain reaction of Trioncubes, the
more fuel is produced for the Penko and the closer you will be to defeating the
evil Hellmetal.

Trioncube will feature multiple unique game modes
for players rocketing across the stars. They will battle through eight planets
in Arcade mode, 45 missions in Story mode, see how far one can go in Endless
Mode, and a series of other modes. Players will earn coins as they form 3×3
squares from 5 differently shaped puzzle pieces. The larger the Trioncube, the
more coins they will collect. Coins can then be cashed in for new effects and
screen art to customize the game. With 10 backgrounds and 50 effects ranging
from sushi rolls to tambourines there’s an endless amount of unlocking to do.
