SIMCITY CREATOR, AN ALL-NEW
EXPERIENCE FROM THE SIMS LABEL FOR THE Wii AND NDS, COMING SEPTEMBER 2008

Create, Enjoy, Destroy Amazing
Cities On The Wii; Develop Your City From Ancient Times To The Modern Day On The
Nintendo DS

SimCity Creator for the Wii™ Be a
powerful mayor — create, enjoy and destroy your ultimate city. Start by zoning
your city, constructing homes, businesses, factories, skyscrapers, freeways,
railroads, and much more. SimCity Creator is a visually exciting experience with
a completely new user interface, designed specifically for the Wii and the Wii
remote. You’ll discover many ways to customize your city, including 13 city
styles to explore, such as American, European and Asian themes. More city styles
will be revealed, so stay tuned for more information!

You can also place a selection of
more than 30 “Hero” buildings into your city to make it distinctive and
momentous. Some of these iconic buildings are based on the current day, some on
history and some on fantasy. The more city styles you explore, the more Hero
building options you have.

For the first time, take the liberty
to build transportation systems with free placement of rounded and curved roads
and rail lines, taking your city to new creative and curvy heights. And get a
new perspective on your cityscape from a helicopter, a jet or a propeller plane
which you can use to fly over your creation. Check out what you’ve built in your
aircraft of choice!

Disasters that players of SimCity
always love remain an important and entertaining element in SimCity Creator.
Using the Wii remote you can create earthquakes, tornados, call in destructive
robots and monsters, create fires and discover many more ways to cause havoc.
You created it, and now you can destroy it. With hours of fun and replayability,
the fate of your city and its citizens are in your hands!

SimCity Creator for Nintendo DS™
Guide your city from ancient times into the future with SimCity Creator for
Nintendo DS. Evolve your city through time, starting with ancient times, the
middle ages, modern times, present day and the future. Four play modes are
available, Challenge, Free Play, Chance Encounter and Gallery, giving options to
make the game as challenging or as creative as you want. Earn epic landmarks
along the way to enhance your city and mark your progress into the next era.
Choose your path through history and make a city for the ages.

“SimCity Creator for the Wii and
Nintendo DS brings two separate, delightful new ways to create, enjoy and
destroy your own cities,” said Rod Humble, Head of Studio for The Sims Label.
“On the Wii, for the first time in the SimCity franchise, you will have the
ability to build curved roads and differently shaped zones allowing you to make
more authentic places all utilizing the motions of the Wii remote. Employing the
new city advisor system, you will be able to make the game as complex or simple
as you want. On Nintendo DS, we will give you the ability to make a city develop
through time and to overcome the different challenges each era of urban
development presents. I know both long-time and new SimCity players will enjoy
these innovative experiences in SimCity Creator starting this September!”

SimCity Creator will be available on
the Wii and Nintendo DS on September 22, 2008 in North America and on September
19, 2008 in Europe and Asia-Pacific regions.
