Atlus has just officially announced 101-in-1 Megamix for Wii. We already knew it was coming but now we get an official announcement. Additionally, they've announced an RPG slated for a Spring release next year. See below for more details.
Atlus U.S.A., Inc., your favorite family-friendly publisher, today announced that it has secured the North American publishing rights from European developer and publisher Nordcurrent for 101-in-1 Party Megamix™ for Wii™, a collection of one hundred and one family-friendly, addictive games all set in a variety of themes. Kids and adults who are racing fans, sports nuts, old school arcade gamers, action addicts, casual gamers, and fans of brain-teasing puzzles will find favorites to play solo or together in 101-in-1 Party Megamix!
Friends and family members will have boundless fun mastering games in three different modes: TV Guide, Zapping, and Marathon. Featuring eight differently-themed channels, TV Guide mode challenges players to beat high scores to unlock more games and earn bonus prizes to decorate their player profiles with. Zapping mode provides instant access to any currently unlocked game. Up to four players can join the party in Marathon mode where everyone plays five randomly selected games in a row and competes for the highest score! Players can take on the one hundred and one challenges alone to access every last game, or make it a family competition, and see who can unlock the most games. Up to four profiles can be saved per console so each player's individual progress is maintained.
Atlus U.S.A., Inc. today surprised everyone with the news that it has secured the North American publishing rights for Shiren the Wanderer™, the critically-acclaimed roguelike RPG for Wii™. As Shiren, a wandering adventurer with a penchant for exploration, monster-slaying, and item collection, you will trek across a beautiful and varied countryside with your companion, Koppa, a talking ferret. Randomly-generated areas, intense boss battles, extensive item customization, and a cast of intriguing and unpredictable characters translate into one of the most satisfying RPG experiences of the year.
Exceptionally reviewed by famed Japanese gaming publication Famitsu (9/9/8/9), this latest entry in the legendary series stands as one of the most addictive, highly rewarding, and endlessly replayable games available on Wii, not to mention the most accessible Shiren game yet.
Shiren the Wanderer is currently scheduled for release on Wii in Spring 2010.
