FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Irvine, CA, February 23, 2005 - Atlus U.S.A., Inc., a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, announced today its plans to publish Puyo POP FEVER, the classic action-puzzle game scheduled to ship in April 2005 for the Nintendo Game Boy® Advance. Puyo puzzlers rejoice as the fever returns on the Nintendo DS with exclusive features not found on any other system! With its unique Touch Screen control and 8-player simultaneous puzzle action with a single Game Card, this is the definitive version of the classic puzzle game.
"Hey Gail have you seen this game!?," said Bill Alexander, former Project Lead turned puyopopping junkie at Atlus U.S.A., Inc. "It's Puyo POP FEVER for the DS!"
"Yah we just licensed it and we're putting it out in the spring."
"Dude, did you know that you can literally play this thing forever!?"
"Um yeah, it does have that very cool endless mode, which the last time I checked means
"Oh and did you know that you can play up to 8-players with a single Game Card!? Dang! How can you beat that!? If I meet someone at the airport and they have a DS and I have my DS, we could play while we were at the airport because they don't even need their own card and I would just upload the game to them, just like magic! That is soooo cool!
"Yah that's what single-card download play means... You alright, Bill?"
"Hey, Gail can you finish this without me? I gotta show the testers my new puyo techniques..."
"Well there you have it folks, we may have lost a Project Lead, but at least you'll be able to get your hands on this incredibly fun puzzle game when it hits stores this spring. And hopefully you'll keep your sanity in the process."
