Hudson Entertainment Brings My Aquarium to WiiWare

REDWOOD CITY, CA– July 15, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of Hudson Soft, today announced that it is bringing My Aquarium to WiiWare™ on the Wii™.

My Aquarium is an all-new, original IP for digital download on WiiWare. In this pleasant and relaxing software experience, much like a real aquarium, you can customize your fish tank with different backgrounds, gravel styles, decorations, plant life, and of course, fish. A release date for My Aquarium will be announced soon.

“While many games and downloads these days focus on wild, fast-paced gameplay, My Aquarium offers a totally different, calming experience,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.“Watching the amazing things that can happen in the underwater world is something the entire family can enjoy.”

No room for a real aquarium? Don’t have the time or money to maintain a fish tank? Why not add a beautiful, maintenance-free aquatic experience to your home with My Aquarium? Sit back, relax and interact with the fish. If you have to go away for a while, don’t worry; you might even find a brand new fish when you come back! In My Aquarium, Wii owners can choose the fish that will live in their aquarium and what decorations they’ll get to enjoy. You can choose the glass color, lighting, background design, style of gravel, rocks, or plant life for the world their fish will inhabit and can mix and match different fish in up to 6 individual aquariums. You can even send aquariums to friends using WiiConnect24™ if they also have My Aquarium.

Some other features of My Aquarium include:

• A wide selection of colorful fish– Choose from 40 different types of fish, from groupers to jellyfish. Both freshwater and saltwater fish can cohabit just fine. If you want to feed your fish, you can choose from a variety of food. You can even interact with your fish and keep a watchful eye on your favorite. Learn more about your fish in the Fish Database.

• Interacts with the Forecast Channel– Tank conditions change depending on the weather in your area!

• Focused on Fun–You can simply relax and enjoy the fish. Don’t worry about water temperatures or other special knowledge needed for a real aquarium. My Aquarium requires only your imagination.
