Acclaimed Worldwide Board Game Now Available for PSP® System.
EDISON, NJ, February 27, 2008 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced it has shipped Blokus Portable: Steambot Championship for the PSP® system. Developed by IREM, Blokus Portable brings the highly successful board game to the PSP® system with a winning combo that includes the original four-player Blokus, two-player Blokus Travel/Duo and the endearing anime characters from Steambot Chronicles.
“The PSP® system version of Blokus captures the same exciting strategic play that has helped its board game counterparts build a worldwide fan base of three million players,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations, Majesco. “We think the consumer-friendly price point coupled with the award-winning board game content is a perfect mix of value and addictive gameplay.”
The rules of Blokus are simple: Each player places his/her pieces on the board in turn, ensuring that pieces of the same color touch at one or more corners, but never along the sides. The objective is to strategize and place as many pieces as you can before your opponent/s beats you to it. Based on the same basic rules and intuitive gameplay that earned the board game 26 prestigious awards, Blokus Portable allows up to 16 people to play in ad hoc wireless mode, or up to three friends to play simultaneously using one Universal Media Disc (UMDTM) in the ad hoc game sharing mode. Blokus Portable also lets players customize their own character and unlock 18 additional characters from the Steambot Chronicles series.
Blokus Portable: Steambot Championship is rated E for Everyone and is now available on the PSP® system for a suggested retail price of $19.99. For additional information, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
