NEW PUZZLE/ACTION TITLE MOVES TO A CLASSICAL BEAT: KURULIN FUSION FOR PSP®(PlayStation®Portable) system BRILLIANTLY BLEN

Thursday, December 10, 2009

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE TO ALL MEDIA

Bellevue, Washington– MTO USA is pleased to announce Kurulin Fusion™, an hypnotic new puzzle game for the PSP system. Fans of all ages and skill levels will love Kurulin Fusion’s four modes of uniquely rich gameplay, including both the adrenaline-fueled action of Arcade mode and the in-depth strategic planning of Mission mode. Kurulin Fusion is available December 10th, 2009 for download in North America from the PlayStation®Network for $4.99.

Kurulin Fusion’s visionary aesthetic perfectly balances a futuristic look and feel with a soundtrack that uniquely combines the talents of one of the greatest composers of all time and one of the giants of video-game music. By reimagining the works of the 17th-century composer Johann Sebastian Bach for the 21st century, renowned Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu has set a new standard for puzzle/action game music.

At the game's core are Fusion Blocks and Energy Orbs, which annihilate each other with a burst of energy if matching colors touch. Strategically combining Fusion Blocks into massive structures, then linking the blocks to a string of like-colored Energy Orbs, will ignite a stunning chain reaction that delivers super scores.

Gamers of all ages and skill levels will love Kurulin Fusion’s four modes:

• Arcade: Starts off easy, but as you advance through 100 levels of increasingly daunting game play you’ll find both your reflexes and your strategic smarts pushed to the limit.

• Mission: Battle through 30 stages of engaging challenges. A surprise awaits those who triumph all the way to the end!

• Score Attack: The clock is ticking down relentlessly, but you’ll need to keep your cool to reel off the massive combos that guarantee a high score.

• Multiplayer: Square off against another Kurulin Fusion owner via local wireless connection.

The imaginative soundtrack invests some of the world’s most beloved music with the kinetic appeal of digital-age instrumentation. Uematsu’s unparalleled career includes compositional credits for many Final Fantasy games and other Square-Enix classics. He’s also performed his music with symphonies around the world.

“We’re excited at the opportunity to help MTO USA bring this excellent game to North American players,” says Sheila Boughten, President of Tozai Games, which is handling Kurulin Fusion's launch in the United States.“We believe that Kurulin Fusion’s remarkable interpretations of Bach’s famous fugues, Goldberg Variations and other classical compositions sets a new standard in game music.”

MTO USA President Scott Tsumura vigorously agrees.“The compelling game play, stunning sights and sounds and attractive price make Kurulin Fusion a top choice for the PSP®(PlayStation®Portable) system.”

Kurulin Fusion can be downloaded and played on the PSP®(PlayStation®Portable) system and PSP®go systems.

Kurulin Fusion has been rated“E” (“Everyone”) by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).

Kurulin Fusion is published in North America by MTO USA in association with Tozai Games.
