Burlingame, CA., February 7, 2011 - Natsume Inc., a worldwide developer and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that S.C.A.T. is now available for download for the Wii Virtual Console. The game is rated E by the ESRB.

"S.C.A.T. is a top-notch shoot-'em-up classic!" said Hiro Maekawa, President and CEO at Natsume.  "It's got intense action, awesome powerups, and 2-player co-op. No shooter fan should miss it!"

S.C.A.T. (Special Cybernetic Attack Team) is a shooter in the classic mold. An alien armada has come to destroy the Earth, and only you (and a friend in the 2-player co-op mode) can stop them! You'll dodge waves of enemies, collect devastating powerups, and blast your way through fearsome bosses! S.C.A.T.'s unique twist on the formula is the two satellite weapons that orbit your character; these can be locked in at any angle to blast enemies above and below you, cover your back, or face forward with your main gun for an all-out frontal assault! It's furious, fast-paced action that'll put your gaming skills to the ultimate test!
