Casual Gamers Can Enjoy This Classic Puzzle Game With Up To Four Players At Home In Three Fast-Paced Multiplayer Modes

REDWOOD CITY, CA – January 16, 2009 – Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm for HUDSON SOFT, today announced that it will launch Pop ‘Em Drop ‘Em Samegame, a new puzzle game available for WiiWare™. Designed for casual players, the game is simple to play but hard to master and has multiplayer fun for up to four players.

Pop ‘Em Drop ‘Em Samegame features classic puzzle gameplay in which players match two or more colored blocks to clear them. As blocks are cleared, the remaining blocks will shift. If players are skilled enough, bonus points are awarded when all blocks are cleared. The game allows for play with up to four friends at home in three fast-paced multiplayer modes: Fame Game, Shame Game and Blame Game. Players can also customize the game by changing the block design and backgrounds.

Release date: April 09

Music remains a major frustration for most of us. Only the bravest and those who could stand those boring and tough music lessons are now able to play music and live that unique experience. For the rest, you can still try to touch that feeling by playing a rhythm based video game and shaking a plastic guitar … but it will never be (sound) the same.

BUT now with “MUSIC”, a new edutainment game for the Nintendo DS coming out in April 09, you could learn and play music in a FUN and EASY WAY!

“MUSIC” brings a serious music learning method on DS developed by Shiro Tsuji a famous Japanese music teacher.

This game was being developed by Locomotive Games as a prototype for the Wii. Unfortunately, the game was canceled once THQ closed down the studio.

Update: Wanted to bump this post to the front page and give you folks an update. Apparently the game is some sort of Ninja action adventure game. No word yet on which platform the game will be heading to, but some have claimed that it is a DS title.

The World Hobby Fair isn’t exactly known for game announcements. This year, however, news is expected when the event begins on January 18 – specifically from EA. The company is expected to be making an announcement for a new game. The mystery title is listed on a special EA site as a “completely original action adventure game.” No further details were provided, but Spore Heroes and the game that Suda51 and Shinji Mikami are working on are two realistic possibilities. Other than EA’s secret title, SimAnimals, Boku to Sim no Machi Kingdom, and Boku to Sim no Machi Party will be playable at the event.
