NEVES Plus Website Launches with Official Video Trailer

CHICAGO - May 12, 2009

Attention puzzle fans: prepare to be playfully perplexed as YUKE’S Company of America today launches the official website and gameplay trailer for NEVES Plus, the upcoming addition to Nintendo’s WiiWare™ game service.

Developed by Akinai Games, NEVES Plus features more than 500 mind-bending tangram challenges. The original single-player NEVES experience has been enhanced and expanded, exploding with new silhouettes, a variety of single and multiplayer modes and an engaging Egyptian theme. Gameplay in NEVES Plus is deceptively simple– using just 7“Lucky” stones, or puzzle pieces, which players must move, flip and rotate to fill on-screen silhouettes.

The new NEVES Plus video trailer provides a sneak peak at the addictively entertaining challenges ahead, including Wii gameplay mechanics and multiplayer modes in NEVES Plus. You can now find full game details and the official NEVES Plus trailer on the Web at

NEVES Plus will be available in soon, downloadable through Nintendo’s WiiWare™ game service. Rated“E” for“Everyone” by the ESRB, NEVES Plus is appropriate and fun for gamers of all ages.
