SAN MATEO, Calif. – Jan. 4, 2011 – The magical platform adventure game, Lost in Shadow, illuminates store shelves as it is now available nationwide on the WiiTM system from Nintendo. The game, published by Hudson Entertainment, the North and South American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, gained critical acclaim at the 2010 E3 when it picked up Kotaku’s “Best Gameplay Mechanic” award and was a runner up for “Best New Game.”
“Lost in Shadow is special. The game is compelling both visually and emotionally, with an original and fun-to-play gameplay mechanic,” said Mike Pepe, Director of Marketing at Hudson Entertainment. “From the beginning, the development team has been committed to experimenting with light and shadow while taking players on an intriguing journey – one that is filled with puzzles and adventure.”
Lost in Shadow sets players in an alternative world, poised in front of a mysterious tower. The tower is filled with moving shadows which at the same time cast a large shadow on everything beneath it. With the help of a winged sylph known as “Spangle,” players can move lights in the foreground to create new shadowy walkways to previously inaccessible areas. Unaffected by gravity while traveling through this medieval landscape, the shadow boy solves mysteries and fights off enemies who stand in his way. The game’s combination of light, shadow, background and foreground creates a unique blend of novel gameplay features, morphing landscapes and artistic visuals.
Lost in Shadow is now available on Wii for $39.99 and is rated “E10+” by the ESRB. For more information on Lost in Shadow, please visit www.lostinshadow.com.
