HAMBURG, Germany – May 27th, 2008 – Exit Games today announced that their mobile gaming platform, Neutron®, has been selected by Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. to support multiplayer features for the upcoming mobile game, DanceDanceRevolution® (DDR). With the power of Exit Games’ Neutron technology platform, Konami Mobile will add mobile-to-mobile, real-time multiplayer gaming and leader boards to the latest version of DDR. The new DDR mobile game is scheduled to release in the Fall of 2008.
The Neutron-supported mobile DDR will revolutionize the way people play the popular franchise, adding never before seen network features. Players will have the ability to dance off against their friends in real time directly from their mobile device, or choose to highlight their latest solo performance by uploading their score online for their friends to see.
“The Neutron gaming platform will enable Konami Mobile to create one of the first full-featured mobile multiplayer games,” said Jim Bradbury, Konami Mobile’s Executive Director. “Social gaming and community features are what consumers want, and with Neutron providing the back end technology, Konami Mobile will bring fans of the DDR series a version of the game that they can enjoy from almost anywhere.”

The lineup of leading developers, publishers, technology providers and wireless carriers creates an ecosystem of players involved in mobile multiplayer gaming, clearly positioning Exit Games’ Neutron technology at the forefront of this movement.
