Award Winning Video Mind Game Comes To Japan

Thursday 10th October 2002/… The floating animal saver known as ZooCube has just hovered its way over to Japan on to the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and will shortly appear on the Nintendo GameCube, published by Acclaim Japan Ltd.

"ZooCube offers a unique and addictive experience which will appeal to all gamers. Its original yet simple concept has brought a new dimension to puzzle games and we're thrilled to see it released across all territories" said Rod Cousens, President and COO of Acclaim International.

ZooCube was first shown in Japan at the Tokyo Game Show on the Taito stand where it was extremely well received by consumers and the specialist press.

"This is testament to our mission to create video mind games with widespread appeal. Only a select number of Western designed games ever get released in Japan and we are delighted and honoured that ZooCube is one of them" said Nalin Sharma, CEO of PuzzleKings and creator of ZooCube.

PuzzleKings is a UK based company dedicated to producing video mind games that combine arcade-style action with a cerebral challenge that emphasise playability and longevity. ZooCube is the world-class result of several years of research and fine-tuning; after winning first prize in a competition for his unique concept in leading games magazine EDGE, the ZooCube experience was honed to perfection, creating an intense, original experience that will truly stand the test of time. Indeed the game has already won industry plaudits; at industry trade show E3 in May 2002, it was voted best Game Boy Advance puzzle game by IGN.com and best puzzle game for GameCube by PlanetGamecube.com. Subsequently it has received much high praise from specialist game magazines and consumer press including leading daily newspapers.

ZooCube has just been released in Japan on the Game Boy Advance and will shortly be appearing on the GameCube in October, courtesy of Acclaim Japan Ltd.
