LEICESTER, UK and MIDLOTHIAN, Va.— April 27, 2010– Leading videogame publisher, SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC BB: SOPK), today announced the launch of an online character creator tool based on upcoming retro explosion 3D Dot Game Heroes™ for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system. Head to http://designer.3ddotgameheroes.eu so you can try out your pixel-placing skills before the game’s PAL launch on May 14th.
Ever wanted to save a kingdom as a walking pineapple? What about rescuing a princess playing as a zombie with one arm? Perhaps you just want to see a psychedelic badger wearing a fez swinging a huge sword that’s actually a fish (in fact, who hasn’t wanted to see that?). Well, thanks to 3D Dot Game Heroes’ fantastic character editor, you can create your own hero pixel by pixel and the only restriction is your blocky imagination. You can also trade designs with friends via a compatible USB storage device.
To help gamers prepare for all this thrilling and potentially life-changing (seriously, it’s that good) customisation, SouthPeak Games has launched a simple online character designer. It’s just a taste of the in-depth editing system in 3D Dot Game Heroes but gives you the opportunity to let your creative juices flow and you can even save your hero as an animated forum avatar, an image to add a dash of retro to your Facebook or Twitter page and a desktop wallpaper.
3D Dot Game Heroes will be available in PAL territories on May 14th– just days after the North American release. For more information about the game, head to www.3ddotgameheroes.eu and to try out the character creator, go to http://designer.3ddotgameheroes.eu.
