Media Alert

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.

El Segundo, Calif. - April 13, 2009 - Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., announced today an all-new, original IP for Nintendo DS™ -- WireWay. Delivering a whole new type of gameplay to the DS, WireWay is an interactive action puzzle game that introduces a loveable, yet troublesome alien who has been dropped off by his ship and travels the planet jumping through wacky adventures. The player must take full advantage of DS' unique touch-screen and online capabilities to flick, rub, and draw as he helps the alien navigate through 60 interactive, pulse-pounding levels. Additionally, the game features wireless gameplay, the ability to create stages, and much more.

In WireWay players utilize the touch-screen capabilities as they avoid dangerous obstacles - including falling rocks, eerie skulls, and spiky floors -- while they flick the alien with the wire using the stylus, rub the screen to create wind, and draw wires to assist the alien. As they break walls, open new paths, and collect stars to power up, players have as much time as they need to avoid the enemies and help the alien find his way home. Additionally, gamers can challenge up to four players wirelessly for an intense multiplayer race using the local wireless feature.

WireWay is scheduled to be released this Fall 2009 For more information, please visit: www.konami.com.
