Warning: may cause racing game fans to immediately pre-order

Faithful, set down your treatise on why RPGs are the only genre for which you have any interest and take heed!

Family Friendly Title Transforms City Streets into Competitive Urban Playgrounds This Fall

EDISON, N.J., March 9, 2009 – Lace up your sneakers and get ready to hit the pavement as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announces Go Play City Sports for Wii™. The latest title in Majesco’s recently announced Go Play line of motion-based video games for the whole family, Go Play City Sports recreates the experience of playing sports in a vast urban playground where manhole covers double as home plate. The all-new sports compilation allows players to compete against the best neighborhood athletes in six classic games, including stickball, kickball, handball, rooftop hockey, shootout soccer and jump rope.

Go Play City Sports takes full advantage of the Wii’s capabilities in order to bring these timeless games from the streets to the living room. Players use the intuitive movements of the Wii Remote™ to rule the courts and stake their claim as king of the block. However, just like on the real street, they must dodge obstacles like manhole covers, fire hydrants and parked cars as they try to earn trophies and unlock items such as new courts and equipment. The game supports up to four players in both head-to-head or team-based games, while single player mode allows gamers to fully explore the expansive urban environment. With fully customizable characters and Wii Balance Board™ support, Go Play City Sports is a fun, competitive game for players both young and old!
