Hudson's My Aquarium For WiiWare Ready For Download

REDWOOD CITY, CA– September 2, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of Hudson Soft, today announced My Aquarium for WiiWare™ on the Wii™ is now available for digital download.

My Aquarium is an all-new, original IP for WiiWare that brings the relaxation of an aquarium to players using the Wii. It’s the perfect form of entertainment for those who would love to own fish, but don’t have room, money or time to maintain a real fish tank. My Aquarium will bring a peaceful and soothing environment into households with a Wii, and will leave behind a maintenance-free aquatic experience. Have to go away for a while? No worries- you don’t need to ask a friend to feed the fish for you. In fact, you might even find a brand new fish when you come back!

“My Aquarium is the perfect game to bring families together, offering a unique, calming experience and endless hours of amusement and relaxation,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.“Players can simply relax and enjoy the fish, without worrying about maintenance, like feeding and cleaning, that comes with a real aquarium.”

In My Aquarium, Wii owners can customize their aquarium to suit their own personal tastes. Players can decide exactly which fish they want to live in their aquarium and what decorations they’ll get to enjoy. In addition, users can also choose the glass color, lighting, background design, style of floor, rocks, and plant life for the world the fish will inhabit. Players can also mix and match different fish in up to six individual aquariums. Aquariums can even be shared with friends using WiiConnect24™ if they also have My Aquarium.

One of the most unique features of My Aquarium is that it interacts with the Wii’s Forecast Channel, providing an amazingly realistic aquatic experience. My Aquarium actually enables players’ tank conditions to change depending on the actual weather in their area!

My Aquarium includes a wide selection of colorful fish and a realistic aquatic experience for the entire family to enjoy. There are 50 different types of fish to choose, and the more gamers play, the more fish they’ll get! Players can select from three different types of food when feeding their fish, and the fish can even be interacted with. Aquarium owners can learn more about their fish in My Aquarium’s Fish Database.

The Entertainment Software Rating Board has rated My Aquarium E for Everybody.
