Wiimote-wielding blade battles available in the States now.
EDISON, N.J., September 14, 2010 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced the availability of Swords for Wii at retail stores nationwide. In Swords, players use the Wii Remote with Wii MotionPlus as their blade in 1-to-1 motion-based battles against some of the fiercest fighters from history.
Swords transports players through time and space to battle eight highly skilled opponents, including the celebrated Sir Lancelot of the Round Table, Razor - a Jumandi hunter droid capable of unbelievable acrobatic moves and the vicious Viking chieftain Armin. After each victory, players are rewarded with an upgraded sword that offers unique capabilities-like poison, fire and extra damage blades-designed to prepare them for their next foe.
Players begin their quest in the training dojo where Sensei Musashi helps them develop skills and master combo attacks to defeat even the most challenging fighters. Players can continue to develop their skills in between fights with additional drills involving carving, sparring, blocking and even battling a horde of zombies. Swords also lets players train together with a friend or go head-to-head in the arena to determine the ultimate blade master.
Developed by Panic Button, Swords for Wii is rated T and carries a suggested retail price of $29.99. For additional information about this game or Majesco's exciting line of products, please visit http://www.majescoentertainment.com/.
