San Mateo, Calif.– Nov. 24, 2009– Table for 8? Diner Dash®, published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American subsidiary for HUDSON SOFT, is now available for download on the PlayStation ® Network from PlayStation ® 3 computer entertainment system. With multiplayer for up to eight players, gameplay spreads across four diners in Team Dash or can go one-on-one in head-to-head mode. And of course, fans of classic play can still play solo as hardworking Flo. Diner Dash, the award-winning casual game franchise created by PlayFirst, is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB) and downloadable on PlayStation®Network for $9.99.
“Flo is a classic game character and this game really brings her into the big time,” said Sabine Duvall, vice president of product development at Hudson Entertainment.“ Diner Dash is now more exciting than ever thanks to the ability to share gameplay with friends.”
Diner Dash comes to life in 3D on next generation consoles when players have the option to take direct control of Flo as she runs around to seat patrons, take orders, deliver food, receives payment and bus tables as efficiently as possible within the time limit allowed. Players fond of the traditional control schemes may also use a point-and-click style 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.
