San Mateo, Calif.– March 5, 2010– The tables are being set for the launch of Diner Dash® on WiiWare™, coming to the Wii™ on March 29, 2010. Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American subsidiary of HUDSON SOFT, partners with PlayFirst, creators of Diner Dash, to bring this best-selling brand to WiiWare™. Diner Dash is also currently available on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and on PlayStation® Network for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.
“ Diner Dash has been serving heaps of fun for years and Wii owners will soon get their first taste of the action,” said Sabine Duvall, vice president of product development at Hudson Entertainment.“New controls designed especially for the Wii and a new multiplayer mode will keep gamers coming back for second helpings.”
Diner Dash comes to life in 3D on next generation consoles as players have the option to take direct control of Flo as she runs around to seat patrons, take orders, deliver food, receive payment and bus tables as efficiently as possible within the time limit allowed. Players fond of the traditional control schemes may also use“Flo Control” with hotkeys to aid Flo in her quest for customer satisfaction, which is reflected in a heart meter that empties as customers lose patience. If the meter empties completely, then the customer will leave the restaurant. Servers looking to play with co-workers can join with up to seven other players in multiplayer across four diners in Team Dash or go 1-on-1 in head-to-head mode.
