Don’t be surprised when a game thusly named burgles all your free time

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA – JANUARY 15, 2009 – Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Steal Princess™ for Nintendo DS™, a puzzle/platformer hybrid on a mission to break the mold and redefine a couple of genres in the process. Over 150 levels of increasing complexity eagerly look forward to pushing your central processing unit (i.e., your brain) to its limits. When you’ve completed the stages provided, wipe your well-earned tears of joy away and jump into the powerful level creator to design your own devilishly tough maps, placing enemies, constructing moving platforms, and even setting custom victory conditions! Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection support allows your custom creations to be shared online with anyone across North America!

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.
