Santa Ana, CA – NIS America announced today that they are working together with Nicalis, Inc. to develop an all new action game, Cave Story 3D for the Nintendo 3DS™. Cave Story 3D is scheduled to be released this summer in Europe.

"I feel great possibilities working with Nicalis. They’re both skilled and dedicated with making no compromises. I think fans of the original Cave Story will be pleased with this latest incarnation." said NIS America Producer Jack Niida. ”Also through this partnership, we would like to bring new life to the legendary game and make it accessible to a new range of audiences.”

Since its foundation in 2003, NIS America has operated under the philosophy of “entertainment for all,” and brought games that satisfy its many customers. NIS America introduced its first video game Phantom Brave in 2004, and since then have been constantly releasing multiple video games and anime.

About Cave Story 3D
Cave Story 3D is a side scrolling action adventure game inspired by the fan-favorite 2D original. Now in a full 3D world, Cave Story takes the proven 2D action, exploration into stereoscopic awesomeness. You wake up in a cave with no idea who you are or where you came from, but you know you must help a cute race of rabbit-like creatures beat the crap out of some crusty old doctor.

As you advance through the game, you’ll learn the origin of the Mimiga world and even your own. Like the critically acclaimed Pixel masterpiece, Cave Story 3D is a combination of high-speed shooting action scenes with heavy emphasis on platforming, exploration, light puzzle solving as well as a deep storyline.

Press Release

London – 31 March – Sky and Xbox 360 have signed a product placement deal for the Kinect for Xbox 360 game Kinect Sports, the recent BAFTA Best Family Game award winner , to appear in the pre-title sequence of Sky 1 HD’s sports panel show A League of Their Own.

The Kinect Sports product placement will feature from this Friday 1st April, becoming the first product placement deal to air on Sky.

CPL Productions – the producers of A League of their Own – Sky and Xbox have worked closely together to develop the show’s pre-title sequence which features its stars preparing to go on-air while members of the studio audience gear up in the backstage holding area by playing Kinect Sports , the best-selling Kinect for Xbox 360 game, which offers a fun, controller-free selection of football, bowling, boxing, volley ball, table tennis and track and field experiences for all the family.

The Kinect Sports product placement deal complements Xbox 360’s existing sponsorship of the series. Both sponsorship and product placement deals were negotiated by Sky and the media agency UM London on behalf of Xbox.

Jason Hughes, Head of Branded Content, BSkyB, comments, “We’re delighted to be able to build on our broadcast sponsor partnership with Kinect for Xbox 360 and Kinect Sports in this way, especially as it is the first product placement deal we’ve agreed to make it on air. Both Kinect Sports and A League of Their Own are all about people having fun with sport, and we look forward to working with Xbox to innovate and develop our relationship further over time.”

Adds Stephen McGill, Director of Xbox and Entertainment for Microsoft’s Retail Sales and Marketing Division, UK & IR, “Coming hot on the heels of the Xbox sponsorship of Got to Dance 2, this product placement deal with Sky provides yet another highly innovative partnership opportunity. Kinect Sports is an ideal fit for A League of Their Own, and I’m sure viewers will be interested to see how the game has been integrated into the show.”

Phil Cresswell, Ideation Director, UM London, adds, “We’re really excited to be involved in the first ever product placement deal for Xbox in the UK. The new Ofcom regulations have opened up a great opportunity for us to work with broadcasters, partners and producers in the same way that we have been doing for a number of years across our European markets. Now we can build on our vast experience in this field and apply it more closely to home.”

The revolutionary Kinect for Xbox 360 lets consumers experience games and entertainment, no controller required. Kinect has been named by Guinness World Records as the Fastest Selling Consumer Electronics Device, by selling eight million units in its first 60 days. To date, Kinect for Xbox 360 has sold more than 10 million units worldwide.
