Majesco will offer two exclusive titles for the Nintendo DS system, [i]Moonlight Fables[/i] and [i]Nanostray[/i]. Both titles feature touch screen input, multiplayer network play and dual screen support.
“The Nintendo DS promises a very unique interface and an array of software features, including wireless connectivity and touch screen support,” said Majesco President Jesse Sutton. “We are pleased to announce our first game offerings for the Nintendo DS and look forward to creating a variety of innovative products for the system.”
[i]Moonlight Fables[/i] is a side-scrolling, action/adventure title designed by Cyber Philharmonic Video Game Design and follows the saga
of Trista Silver, a recent Strike Force officer graduate and the unwitting heir to the Wolfen Empire. Players utilize the Nintendo DS touch screen, to manipulate the phases of the moon and unlock Trista’s werewolf powers.
A 3D sci-fi shooter developed by Shin’en, [i]Nanostray[/i] boasts a wide array of weapons, un-lockable features and game modes, as well as an online ranking system that tracks the game’s top players. Nanostray’s touch screen features will allow players to track enemy movement via interactive radar and manage the various weapons and other special pick ups.
Adds Majesco’s Chief Technology Officer, Kevin Ray, “The Nintendo DS offers developers a broad design palette and we are looking to apply the same creative approach to this platform that we did with the Game Boy Advance with our Game Boy Advance Video and Wireless technologies.”
