Rising Star Games confirms Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon for 19th March release

Tuesday 16th February 2010: Leading videogames publisher Rising Star Games today confirms that Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon will be released throughout Europe on 19th March, exclusively for the Nintendo Wii.

Set in a post-apocalyptic vision of Japan, Fragile Dreams is a fantasy adventure game that takes place in a world seemingly devoid of human life. Consequently, gamers will experience an acute sense of isolation as they guide an abandoned young boy named Seto, who is searching for survivors on the way to his final destination.

An engaging and unique game, as the story unfolds the gamer gradually begins to make sense of the desolate world while fending off ghosts and other hostile creatures, using the Wiimote as both weapon and torch.

Visually stunning, audio is also crucial in Fragile Dreams - along with an emotional soundtrack, ghostly sounds emanate from the Wiimote's speaker, adding to the eerie environment. It can also be pointed at the source of a sound and used as an aid to detect key items and locations.

"We're delighted to be able to announce a release date for Fragile Dreams," says Martin Defries, managing director, Rising Star Games. "As soon as gamers start playing it, they will become engrossed in the storyline and focused on unravelling the mysteries of this deserted world."

The game is highly anticipated and has already received a 31/40 Famitsu score in its native Japan, becoming one of the top selling games during its week of release.

Fragile Dreams: Farewell Ruins of the Moon is released on 19th March for the Nintendo Wii.
