February 2005

Midas Interactive continues to set the standard for budget console game publishing with the imminent release of Masters of the UniverseTM He-Man: Defender of GrayskullTM on PlayStation 2.

As if the debut appearance of the iconic He-Man on the next generation of consoles wasn't enough Midas Interactive has also unveiled a bulging marketing campaign targeting the leading youth specialist gaming and lifestyle magazines in the market.

The timing could not be better with the recent re-emergence of Masters of the UniverseTM as a kids favorite with an all new cartoon series, comic and range of merchandise.

Masters of the UniverseTM He-Man: Defender of GrayskullTM is released on 25th February with an RRP of £19.99.

The 25th of February also sees the release by Midas Interactive of Project Minerva Professional a squad based shoot 'em up from D3 Publisher. Project Minerva Professional was hugely popular in its native Japan reaching number 7 in the all format chart and with an incredible RRP of £19.99 it is expected to make its mark in the European market.

The quality of these new releases further strengthens Midas' position at the forefront of budget game publishing, a theme expanded upon by Sales Manager, Sam Collins -

"The release of both Masters of the Universe and Project Minerva is further evidence of the Midas commitment to offering the very best value for money games. Both titles have created huge interest in the market due to their undoubted quality and unique positioning. The fact that Midas can publish titles with this level of appeal at a sub-£20 price point is a testament to the Midas Interactive publishing model."
