Thursday 18th March 2010: Leading videogames publisher Rising Star Games is pleased to confirm that fantasy adventure game Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon will be in stores tomorrow (19th March), available exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.
In Fragile Dreams gamers take on the role of an abandoned young boy named Seto, the sole survivor in a world filled with ruined buildings and deserted train stations that's plagued by monsters and disembodied ghosts. His quest is to find survivors from the seemingly unknown event that has devastated the world he lives in.
Developer tri-Crescendo has created a beautiful post apocalyptic vision of Japan where gamers can immerse themselves in the desolation of the world and experience the acute sense of loss the lead character is experiencing.
While exploring the world, gamers must fight off ghosts and monsters with the Wiimote, which also doubles up as a flashlight and helps to solve puzzles. Throughout the game the microphone emits eerie sounds and instructions to help Seto locate items throughout the game.
"Rising Star Games is committed to bringing the best games from the east to the west and this is typified by Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon," says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. "Crucially the game is continuing to expand the type of product available for the Wii and that's why we think it's important to bring Fragile Dreams to market in Europe."
The game is highly anticipated and has already received a 31/40 Famitsu score in its native Japan, becoming one of the top selling games during its week of release.
Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon launches tomorrow (19th March) exclusively on the Nintendo Wii.
