Bristol, U.K., January 22, 2009– Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Dawn of Heroes for Nintendo DS™. Developed by Wicked Studios, Dawn of Heroes is a tactical role playing game that combines classic RPG concepts—including character development, epic combat, quests and puzzles—with a humorous style. The game also supports head-to-head multiplayer action and the ability to trade collected items, two features designed to build a community of worldwide heroes.
Featuring more than 50 playable missions with branching paths and side quests, Dawn of Heroes takes players to the endangered Kingdom of Brimthule. Brimthule’s King sacrificed himself to entomb the great beast Ragnakore within stone. Now players must save the kingdom by battling the curses, monsters and misfortunes that have ensued following the King’s tragic demise. Utilizing a streamlined user interface that allows players to command all aspects of their adventure with the Touch Screen and stylus, the game contains 25 playable classes from six unique factions and a multitude of enemies. In addition, the massive world of Brimthule and its unique inhabitants are rendered in detailed 3D graphics that help bring the adventure to life.
Dawn of Heroes for Nintendo DS™ is expected to release later this year in Europe. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com and www.majescoeurope.com
