FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Bristol, U.K, February 7th, 2007 - The world's most recognizable teen sleuth unravels an interactive mystery in Nancy Drew and The Deadly Secret of Olde World Park, a new game for the Nintendo DS from Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL). Developed by Gorilla Systems Co. and scheduled for worldwide release later this year, Nancy Drew lets fans become the world's most recognizable teen detective in a Touch Screen based adventure.
"Today's Nancy Drew is a very strong, female lead heroine whose independence and perseverance make her an excellent role model," said John Merchant, European Marketing Manager. "Our new Nintendo DS game captures the spirit of this classic character and brings Nancy to life in an interactive, graphic novel inspired world."
In Nancy Drew and The Deadly Secret of Olde World Park, players assume the role of the teenage super sleuth as she works to solve the mystery of the missing billionaire, Thaddeus Belmont. Players must collect clues, decipher puzzles, follow suspects, sneak into areas and much more as they use their deductive reasoning skills to progress through 15 increasingly difficult chapters. Touch Screen play is incorporated into unique conversation and unlocking mini-games, but players will also use the stylus in Nancy's Clue Journal to access maps, inventory and tasks.
