HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES POOL REVOLUTION: CUE SPORTS FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON WII

REDWOOD CITY, CA– November 11, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced that Pool Revolution: Cue Sports will be coming to WiiWare™. This fun and accessible pool game can be played against friends in the living room or online, so players no longer need to worry about having enough space for a pool table!

“Pool Revolution: Cue Sports gives WiiWare fans what they want,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.“Pool is a recreational activity everybody wants to play together, not alone, so we’re positive players will be happy with the offline and online modes we included for up to four players.”

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports features realistic controls where gamers use the Wii Remote™ just like an actual cue. The strength of the shot depends on how fast the player moves the remote.

For those not quite ready to use an“actual” pool cue, the strength of the shot can be set by using the buttons on the controller.

Players can choose from the most popular types of pool for up to four players, including eight ball, nine ball, rotation, and snooker. An in-game explanation will help provide descriptions of anything you need to know! Once gamers get the hang of it, they can also try performing trick shots in Puzzle Mode. For players really up for a challenge, they can even set up their own! And, for those who feel they are true pool sharks, there is online play for up to four players in a Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection matchup.

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
