KONAMI REVEALS NEW SCREENSHOTS FOR PUZZLE CHRONICLES

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today revealed new screenshots from the upcoming fast-action puzzle role-playing game, Puzzle Chronicles for Xbox LIVE® Arcade, PlayStation®Network, PlayStation®Portable, Nintendo DS™ and Windows PC. Set in the dark and savage lands of the Ashurin Empire, players are challenged to journey among powerful lords and mystical creatures, while adventuring on quests and collecting powerful new equipment and skills.

In Puzzle Chronicles, players assume the role of a hero fighting to avenge the atrocities brought upon fellow tribesmen by the Emperor Al-Dirag of the Ashurin Empire. Aided by a pet Warbeast and a mysterious sorceress, players embark on an expedition to free their fellow tribesmen, who were taken as slaves, and exact retribution on their enemies. To succeed in their adventure, gamers must complete a series of quests across various locations including battlefields, slave camps, desert crypts and the palace of the tyrannical Emperor.

Full of entertaining characters and enchanting environments, the new puzzle combat system is based on real time action as players have to think fast and act strategically in order to defeat their opponents. Adding to the replay value, gamers will have the opportunity to battle sinister wizards, huge monsters, and evil overlords in Quick Battle mode. Gamers can level up their character through a diverse skill tree full of magical and physical attacks as well as level up their Warbeast. As another way to enjoy the game, players can challenge their friends to multiplayer battles via local WiFi on the Nintendo DS and the PlayStationPortable or across the internet on the Xbox LIVE Arcade, PlayStationNetwork and PC platforms.

Puzzle Chronicles will be available in Q1 2010 for Xbox LIVE® Arcade, PlayStation®Network, PlayStation®Portable, Nintendo DS™ and Windows PC.
