LEICESTER, UK and MIDLOTHIAN, Va.— May 14, 2010 - Leading videogame publisher, SouthPeak Interactive Corporation (OTC BB: SOPK), announced adventure fans in Europe can officially get their retro fix because 3D Dot Game Heroes™ is available for the PlayStation®3 (PS3™) computer entertainment system today.
“We’re delighted to be celebrating Dot-Day,” said Ed Blincoe, European marketing director, SouthPeak Games, while swinging a gigantic sword around.“The reaction among the gaming community has been fantastic and we hope fans show their support by snapping up this extremely unique title... after all, it’s not often a game like this makes it to European shores.”
3D Dot Game Heroes is perfect for those who are bored of countless shooters, racers and games with too many explosions. It harks back to the golden age of gaming with plenty of tongue-in-cheek references to classic videogames, pick-up-and-play adventuring and graphics that are actually meant to be blocky... honestly, that’s the way it should look.
About 3D Dot Game Heroes
A long, long time ago, the Dark King Onyx brought an age of darkness upon Dotnia Kingdom. Only by the bravery of a hero with a legendary sword was Onyx sealed in an orb, restoring peace to the world. But Fuelle, a powerful Dark Bishop, has stolen the orb, and with it, peace. Dotnia requires a hero once more! Can you live up to the legend?
• Ultimate retro love letter - Seamlessly fusing new and old, the golden era of gaming is felt in every detail of this lovingly-crafted adventure.

Veterans will find references and jokes that pay homage to the great games of yore.
• Awe and adventure live again - Embark on the next generation of classic exploration and discovery in a grand story-based quest. A hero sets out to gain the power of the six sages and the six orbs that protected the kingdom of Dotnia, which now stands on the verge of destruction.
