ATLUS ANNOUNCES NEW RELEASE DATE FOR 101-IN-1 SPORTS MEGAMIX™ FOR NINTENDO DS™

IRVINE, CALIFORNIA - July 29 -- Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today announced that 101-in-1 Sports Megamix TM for Nintendo DS TM , a collection of one hundred and one addictive sports mini-games that anyone can enjoy, has scored a new release date of September 7, 2010. The game features a wide assortment of all-time favorites like bowling, boxing, volleyball, tennis, basketball and unique sports some may not recognize right away, such as caber tossing, traction kiting, capoeira, street luge, and more! There is practically no end to the fast-paced sports action!

"Do you know how hard it is to fit 101 different sports games on a single cartridge?" asked an out-of-breath Aram Jabbari, Manager of Public Relations and Sales. "We had a hundred of them lined up and ready for the crammage process until someone said, 'Where's the 101th sport?' and we suddenly realized it had run away. It made sense, seeing as how it was one of the track and field games. We can't cram until we have them all, so it'll take a little more time, but cram we will, I can promise you that."

Players of all ages will have hours of fun earning points by successfully completing challenges and spending their points to reveal dozens of exciting new sports games, striving to unlock more and more each time. Simple to play and addicting to master, these games will keep players engrossed in scoring goals, earning medals, winning races, and beating high scores.
