San Francisco — April 25, 2006 — Today Ubisoft, one of the world's leading video game publishers today proudly announces that LOSTMAGIC™, the Taito-developed role-playing action video game for the Nintendo DS™ system, has released and will be arriving in stores in North America and Europe this week.
