Leicester, March 6th, 2009– SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SOPK; SOPKU; SOPKW; SOPKZ) is pleased to announce that its unique Nintendo DS™ shoot-‘em-up Big Bang Mini will be available across Europe today. What’s more to commemorate the release, developer Arkedo Studio is officially releasing the game’s award-winning soundtrack for everyone to enjoy.

In Big Bang Mini, your objective is to destroy wave upon wave of enemies, which in turn lights up the night sky with bursts of colorful fireworks. Use the stylus to dodge enemy fire and debris while collecting stars. Specifically designed with the Nintendo DS Touch Screen in mind, Big Bang Mini packs a challenge that any casual or hardcore shooter fan will enjoy.

One of the highlights of the game is the incredible soundtrack by Paris-based artists Yubaba, Smith&Fortune, which was awarded Best Music at the Festival du Jeu Video in 2008. Featuring 24 awesome tracks, the OST can now be downloaded from the‘downloads’ section of www.bigbangmini.com.

We are offering this game at a great price point that make it a must buy for any serious gamer.”
