Colorado, USA – June 8th, 2009 – Semnat Studios is elated to be able to announce that Eduardo the Samurai Toaster is being prepared for launch on WiiWare™ in North America on June 15th, 2009 for a mere 800 Wii Points™. That’s like the price of lunch. For the price of lunch you could own an awesome single-or-cooperative sidescrolling action game. Support the little guy!

With visuals drawn and scanned in from several different art mediums such as pen & ink, acrylic paint and charcoal, Eduardo sports an untraditional aesthetic design for a videogame. Jump, shoot, whip, drive, fly and throw your way through hordes of Peking Opera pastries, spear toting carrots, robotic mangos, and more. Play with friends as you learn to cooperate effectively, or be annoying by throwing each other around the screen and attacking one another.

“I don’t know if I can get away with saying too much about this, but Xseed was kind of being punished, to some extent. They wanted to light a fire under the guy who was in charge of them. Out of all the games we actually have ties with Vanillaware and we were able to get Muramasa. We have a very good relationship with Vanillaware already…We do have relations with Vanillaware…Honestly, there are things going on, but I cannot talk about them at this point in time. They will be revealed at a future date.” – Robert Macchiaverna, Acquisitions Manager at Ignition Entertainment

The situation between XSEED and the publishing rights to Muramasa: The Demon Blade apparently go farther than we initially assumed. I still am slightly surprised that XSEED will not be publishing the title, but luckily for gamers, Ignition appears to be working hard on localization.

The current chaotic state of Washington D.C. has escalated due to increased reports of “alien” activity in the Potomac area. These reports have been confirmed as true by our field agents. Normally, we could be sure that this information would be ignored, but the events of recent terrorist attacks on the capital and the assassination attempt on the President’s life has left government and private organizations in an overly paranoid state. All U.S. agencies are scrambling for any answers to these threats. As you know they are unprepared and incapable of dealing with what is to come. It is in the Trust’s hands to neutralize this new threat to our nation.
