Copter Crisis Gets Life-Size Accessory

GORMLEY, Ontario, Canada– April 1, 2010 -- Digital Leisure today announced the upcoming release of the“Plasti-Copter” accessory for its successful WiiWare™ title. Claiming that it’s most certainly the largest accessory to ever be released for a gaming console, Digital Leisure predicts it might revolutionize the way consumers play video games.

“We’ve heard nothing but great reports from those playing Copter Crisis” states David Foster, Digital Leisure’s president,“but we really felt there was more we could do to enhance the gameplay experience. So we turned the problem over to our engineers and this is what they came up with.”

With a Wii Remote in-hand, the player enters the Plasti-Copter. Once comfortably seated and Copter Crisis started, the player will instantly feel they’re part of the action as they guide the on-screen copter with their remote.

“Life-Size is actually a bit of an exaggeration” says Paul Gold, V.P. Operations.“We reduced the size a little so that it will fit snugly into most family rooms”. And to the suggestion that once in production, the Plasti-Copter will consume more petroleum products than many developing nations, Mr. Gold replies“no worries, we’ve been in touch with several oil-producing countries and they assure us they can ramp up production.”

While some claim that an accessory of this scope is better suited for a disc-based title, Digital Leisure points out that“Really, WiiWare is where the action is– digital downloads are the future.”

The price may be a bit of a stumbling block for some but for those who can afford it but, it’s guaranteed to be the experience of a lifetime. As an added bonus for those who preorder Plasti-Copter today, Digital Leisure is offering a special shipping option– helicopter airlift delivery to your back yard!*

Copter Crisis available exclusively on WiiWare for 500 Wii Points™.
