San Mateo, Calif. – Sept. 29, 2009 – Get your game face on! Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, will sponsor complimentary tournaments featuring DECA SPORTS™ 2 at GameStop stores in San Jose, Boston and Denver. Each Deca League Challenge Event will be two separate days featuring a private weekday event exclusively for members of local Boys & Girls Clubs and a public weekend tournament where winners receive GameStop gift cards. As a sequel to the landmark success of DECA SPORTS, the exclusive title for Wii™ that shipped two million units world wide, DECA SPORTS 2 will feature 10 new sports and hit the stores on September 29, 2009.
“After last year’s successful Deca League Challenge Event, we had to schedule another tournament for the sequel of DECA SPORTS,” said Mike Pepe, director of marketing at Hudson Entertainment. “The public tournaments will showcase the intense competition of DECA SPORTS 2, while the private events for the Boys and Girls Clubs are is always a heart warming experience.”
Boys & Girls Club members that are 8 years old and up can attend one of the private events and play together as team to win individual prizes. In addition, each participant will be given a game bag that includes a demo of DECA SPORTS 2 along with other free games from Hudson Entertainment. Each Club will also be given a Nintendo Wii just for participating in the private event. The public events will include three separate tournaments for players to compete for GameStop gift cards. Hudson Entertainment employees will attend each event and act as referees.
As a Wii sports compilation game with Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection online multiplayer, DECA SPORTS 2 will allow players to compete against other ‘DECAthletes’ from around the country. Featuring diverse sports such as synchronized swimming, motorcycle road racing, speed skating, ice hockey, mogul skiing, dodge ball, tennis, and darts, as well as lesser known international sports such as petanque and kendo, DECA SPORTS 2 will continue the original game’s credo of “the Everybody Sports Game.” Besides the new play, gamers will also be able to design their own teams, customizing uniforms, athlete skill sets, and even the looks of the athletes themselves.
