(working title), scheduled to debut on Wii™ this Fall. The latest installment in the hit franchise, previously available only for Nintendo DS™, will offer a survival adventure brimming with colorful 3D graphics and maximizing the interactive capabilities of Wii™.

In Lost in Blue: Shipwrecked!, players will find themselves stranded on a mysterious island filled with lush forests, ancient ruins, and an active volcano.
