505 GAMES LAUNCHES CODE UPDATE AND ALL-NEW TWISTED FREE EPISODE FOR NAUGHTY BEAR

London, UK.– Aug. 6, 2010– Global video game publisher 505 Games and developer Artificial Mind&Movement (A2M) today announced that new additions to the recently released Naughty Bear game are now available via Xbox LIVE ® Arcade and the PlayStation ® Network in North America. Players will be able to download the code update as well as the all-new free Level 8 episode for challenging and never-before-seen gameplay.

In the free DLC episode, Naughty Bear receives a surprise invite to a suspicious cake tasting party where he is to be the guest of honour. Players must help Naughty decipher the real motive behind the invitation before things get out of hand on the Island of Perfection.

Upon downloading Level 8, gamers will meet the X-Bears, a gang of superhero bears led by Danger Bear. Adored by their fellow bears on the Island of Perfection, the X-Bears possess super powers and are always ready for battle. Players will also meet Bubbles, Danger Bear’s ultimate die-hard fan, who is identified by his sidekick mask and the Danger Bear hat he wears. Though Bubbles has no superpowers of his own, he solidifies his dedication to Danger Bear and the X-Bears by employing an Uzi in the fight against Naughty.

Players can also unlock expanded in-game content including costumes, hats, weapons and four new challenges in an originally themed environment.

Naughty Bear is available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 for an MSRP of $49.99. The free downloadable content along with the code update is now available on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.

ABOUT NAUGHTY BEAR

Naughty Bear is an action video game featuring a unique blend of comic mischief and shamefully bad behavior. Players will take on the role of Naughty Bear, a bear driven to seek vengeance after the other bears don't invite him to the big birthday party. Scorned for the last time, Naughty Bear becomes hell bent on manipulating and terrorizing the blissful bears inhabiting the Island of Perfection. Featuring an array of weapons, objects and scare tactics, gamers strive to earn Naughty Points as they inflict physical and psychological harm on Naughty Bear's enemies. This all-new scare-based points system means players will win the most rewards for being deviant and maniacal. The variety allows for a completely new experience every time players pick up a controller and the ill-fated bears become more difficult to harass and terrorize as the game progresses.
