Bangai-O Spirits was confirmed today for the North American market
by D3Publisher of America. Bangai-O Spirits is a compelling blend of twitch-fest shooter and
puzzler genres, seasoned with strategic and tactical elements. Developed in
the eccentric, much-loved style of Treasure, it is a re-imagination
of their ’90s cult classic game Bangai-O, perfected for the Nintendo DS handheld
system. Bangai-O Spirits will incorporate a powerful level editor tool, as well
as revolutionary new technology known as Sound Load that allows gamers to transfer
data among DS systems via sound files-a first for DS handheld systems. The game
is scheduled for release in the second quarter of 2008.

“It is an honor to bring a ground-breaking game by a respected developer like
Treasure to North American game enthusiasts,” said Yoji Takenaka, chief operating
officer, D3PA. “Bangai-O Spirits contains many key elements that define a truly
enjoyable videogame-the innovation in both technology and gameplay make this
a must-have title for everyone who owns a DS system.”

Bangai-O Spirits provides gamers with addictive shooter gameplay, punishing supermoves
and a sensory overload of fireworks onscreen, with strategic and tactical elements
and Treasure’s quirky design style. The game also offers co-op, competitive multiplayer
for 1-4 players via local wireless, a powerful level editor tool which allows
players to edit in-game levels or create new ones from scratch, and the revolutionary
new ability to transfer data among DS systems through sound data transfer technology
known as Sound Load.
