JoWooD Wii/DS support

Likes of The Guild and Neighbours From Hell headed to Nintendo's formats.

Liezen, Austria, February 5th 2009; JoWooD Productions has announced that they will increasingly focus on Nintendos DS™ and Wii™ systems to broaden the corporate product portfolio. Popular brands like “The Guild” and “Neighbours From Hell” will be released for Nintendo DS and Nintendo Wii.

“Bringing our most popular and well-known brands to DS and Wii is a great opportunity and illustrates JoWooD’s multi-platform approach.

The Guild is set in an incredibly rich post-medieval world. Its compelling and unique gameplay will translate well to the new hardware.

The humorous, family-friendly puzzle game Neighbours From Hell will especially benefit hugely from the innovative control schemes offered by Nintendo’s highly successful consoles.

The broad games portfolio enables JoWooD to contribute to almost every segment of the Wii and DS gaming market. With our experience in the industry and reliable development partners we are well positioned to attract console gamers from all over the world.” says David Skreiner, Assistant Producer.

The release for „Neighbours From Hell“ is planned for the 2nd quarter of 2009. With this step, the Austrian publisher will position his popular games on the growing console market.
