HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES PIT CREW PANIC! FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON THE Wii
REDWOOD CITY, CA. – November 11, 2008 – Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced that they will
bring Pit Crew Panic!, an all-new “panic-action” game, to WiiWare.
This unique game is full of frantic fixing as the player’s pit crew
repairs a variety of bizarre “WHATSITS” as fast as they can.
“Pit Crew Panic is crazy enough when playing alone,” said Sabine
Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.
“But when you play this game with friends, either offline or online,
it goes beyond crazy. Endeavoring mechanics will find that it’s a ton
of fun when there are four people waving Wii Remotes around to fix
parts on a giant broken toilet!”
Players can race against the clock on their own or can play with
friends to see whose team can fix the majority of that giant wedding
cake! Inspired grease monkeys can even play online and see whose girls
can out-fix the opponents on an aircraft carrier, a bridge, a backhoe
and many more crazy “WHATSITS”! If a pit crew is up for the challenge,
they can team up for 2 vs. 2 or 3 vs. 1 action to see which team can
fix the most broken parts on each object.
To help the crew fix each object more quickly, players can use the Wii
Remote just like a screwdriver, wrench, or other pit crew tools. There
is also a handy tutorial to help players figure out not just how to
play the game, but also how to go as fast as they can when fixing all
the wacky “WHATSITS” in the game!
Pit Crew Panic! is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software
Rating Board (ESRB).
