Princess Debut

Making its US debut today.

Burlingame, Calif., September 30, 2008 - Natsume, a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that Princess Debut for the Nintendo DS has officially shipped to retail for an MSRP of $29.99. Princess Debut continues Natsume's commitment to publishing family-friendly interactive entertainment. Perfect for girls of all ages and skill levels, the rhythm and adventure title offers girls the chance to step into an enchanting world where they are the princess of a magical kingdom.

"Parents looking for an age-appropriate video game either right now or as a holiday gift this year need to look no farther than the DS section of their local video game store," said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume. "Princess Debut is the perfect addition to any family's library of Nintendo DS titles. The game has a wonderful story, fun characters, and some of the most beautiful and fluid dancing ever seen in any game."

In the game, players find themselves in a fantasy world where they have 30 days to get ready for the big ball; they'll have to master their dance moves and win over one of the six handsome princes to be their partner. They'll meet and woo the princes through the game's large, branching storyline. Once the player convinces a prince to be their dancing partner, it's time to go out on the dance floor! By utilizing the Touch Screen, players guide their character gracefully across the dance floor while matching their partner's rhythm. All of the dances in the game are taken from motion-captured professional dancers, so the game is just as impressive to watch as it is fun to play.

Princess Debut offers four modes of play including Story, Ballroom, Practice, and Movie. With 20 outfits to find, 14 unique endings to experience, and 18 different kinds of music and dance styles to choose from (including Waltz, Latin Dance, Tango, Ballroom, and much more), there's no shortage of things to see and do!

Princess Debut is the perfect holiday gift for any girl who has always dreamed of becoming a princess and finding her own Prince Charming!

Princess Debut is now available exclusively for the Nintendo DS.

Princess Debut is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB).
