Tokobots are discovered at Tecmo's booth this year at E3


LOS ANGELES, Calif. May 10, 2006- At the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo, Tecmo® announced that Tokobots will be making a return in a new adventure later this year. Everyone's favorite mechanical helpers are back as the Tokobots help Bolt unlock and discover the Mysteries of the Karakuri! The Tokobots are swinging, climbing, and spinning their way back into action this year on the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system in a totally enhanced and upgraded Karakuri experience.

Tokobot Plus: Mysteries of the Karakuri on the PlayStation®2 system features significant upgrades and new elements in addition to the graphical improvements from the PSPTM (PlayStation®Portable) system version of the game. Mysteries introduces a story with more depth and dramatic presentation including enhanced rivalries with the enemies and voice-overs for all in-game characters. Complete with 10 new action-packed stages, 30 different types of enemies, and Time-Attack mode, Tokobot Plus delivers on its console debut.

Successfully defeating enemies blocking Bolt's path will allow the Tokobots to absorb the enemy's attack methods allowing for new combination attacks to be learned. Discovering rare treasures throughout the ruins can be used to upgrade the power of combination attacks and increase Bolt's lifebar. Upgraded combination attacks provide extra damage to the enemies and provide special animations. Collect all of the treasures to unleash the full power of the Tokobot Karakuri Combinations!
