DREAM CHRONICLES CASTS A SPELL ON XBOX LIVE ARCADE STARTING TODAY

Minato-ku , Tokyo– Oct . 20 , 2010– The enchanting adventure game Dream Chronicles is now enticing gamers to unravel an intriguing mystery.  HUDSON SOFT has partnered with PlayFirst to bring the award-winning PC title to Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft for 800 Microsoft Points.

Dream Chronicles takes place in an ethereal world where the lines between reality and fantasy fade away.  Players take on the role of Faye, who must follow subtle clues to find her missing husband and escape from the mysterious sleeping spell that has taken over the town of Wish. Players will search high and low for the solutions to puzzles and obstacles that block their way across 18 fantastic locations and can even work with a friend, either online or offline, to solve the mystery that unfolds. The game also includes a new“step-in” feature that allows players to“step” into each scene and move the camera around to find clues.

The original Windows PC version was a Zeeby winner for“People’s Choice Award for Best Hidden Object&Adventure Game.”
