Dance Into a Prince’s Heart With
Natsume’s Original IP Exclusively For DS

Natsume, a worldwide developer and
publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today a new original IP,
Princess Debut, a rhythm and adventure game for girls. The game is coming to the
Nintendo DS system this fall. Published and developed by Natsume, Princess Debut
offers gamers the chance to step through a portal into a magical world where
they become a princess. Girls will have to master their dance moves and woo one
of the six charming princes in time for the big ball!

"What young girl doesn’t dream of
becoming a princess? Princess Debut transports girls into that magical fairytale
world while introducing elements of dance and music," said Hiro Maekawa,
President and CEO at Natsume. "Princess Debut is a fun rhythm and adventure game
with some of the most beautiful and fluid dancing ever seen in a DS title."

In the game, players find themselves
in a fantasy world where they have 30 days to get ready for the big ball;
they’ll have to master their dance moves and win over one of the six handsome
princes to be their partner. They’ll meet and woo the princes through the game’s
large, branching storyline and exciting event system. Once the player convinces
a prince to be their dancing partner, it’s time to go out on the dance floor!
Players will use the Touch Screen to guide their character gracefully across the
dance floor while matching their partner’s rhythm. All of the dances in the game
are taken from motion-captured professional dancers, so the game is just as
impressive to watch as it is fun to play.

Princess Debut offers four modes of
play including Story, Ballroom, Practice, and Movie. With 20 outfits to find, 14
unique endings to experience, and 18 different kinds of music and dance styles
to choose from (including Waltz, Latin dance, Tango, Ballroom, and much more),
there’s no shortage of things to see and do!

Princess Debut will be available
exclusively for the Nintendo DS this fall. For more information on Princess
