Discover the Caverns in the WiiTM version and then travel to the Forest on the Nintendo DSTM

Leicester, April 3rd – After exploring the lush Grasslands of Planet Roo, Wii™ players plunge into the dark and creepy Caverns. The beautiful butterflies have been replaced by nimble bats that also share the same fondness for stealing Meteor shapes, so keep an eye out for them.

Roo-cuz tells players about new meteor shapes that fall at faster rates, and teaches them how to drill through obstacles that stop meteors from reaching their destination. The distance between platforms has shrunk for some levels, so players should be careful to align the rapidly descending meteors and have their nets ready to catch stray meteors as well.

London (3rd April 2009) – Square Enix Ltd., the publisher of Square Enix® interactive entertainment products in Europe and other PAL territories, today announces the release of two downloadable titles for WiiWare™. The first of these defensive simulation games, CRYSTAL DEFENDERS™ R1 will be available for download in April, while a release date for CRYSTAL DEFENDERS™ R2 will be announced at a later stage.

Featuring jobs and locations from the popular FINAL FANTASY TACTICS® series, CRYSTAL DEFENDERS requires players to strategically deploy units to fend off encroaching enemy hordes and prevent them from stealing their party’s crystals.

BURBANK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announces Scooby-Doo! First Frights, the videogame that will be the complement to the upcoming Warner Premiere release. This action-adventure game lets players take on the role of young Scooby-Doo and teenage versions of the newly formed Mystery, Inc. crew to solve their very first cases. The game will be released on the Wii™, Nintendo DS™ and PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in fall 2009.

In Scooby-Doo! First Frights, developed by Torus Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, players put their sleuthing skills to the test solving puzzles, combating enemies and collecting clues before unmasking each mysterious villain. After solving each mystery, players can use unlockable character costumes for Scooby-Doo, Fred, Velma, and the rest of the gang to access new areas in every level.

It’s not exactly a secret that publishers are watching the sales of hardcore Wii games. For Capcom, however, the sales of MadWorld are not too important.

“I think Wii fans look at it that way [MadWorld sales as a barometer], us, probably not as much as you guys. I hope it does well though. Success would be if it’s profitable for Sega. Given that I’m not sure what their production and marketing budgets were, I’d prefer to not hazard a guess…” – Christian Svensson, Corporate Officer/VP of Strategic Planning & Business Development

Even though Capcom isn’t really focusing on the sales of MadWorld, we know that there are other third-party companies out there that are. Hopefully the sales of the game are at least halfway decent…Otherwise, hardcore Wii owners could be in trouble.
