HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT LAUNCHES PIT CREW PANIC! NOW AVAILABLE FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON THE Wii
Broken Aircraft Carrier? Leaking Fishing Boat? Giant Broken Wedding
Cake? Fear not! Hudson’s All-Female Pit Crew Has You Covered!
REDWOOD CITY, CA – December 1, 2008 – Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced the official
launch of Pit Crew Panic!, an all-new, wacky “panic-action” game,
available for WiiWare. This unique game is loaded with frantic fixing
fun as the player’s all-female pit crew repairs a variety of bizarre
“WHATSITS” as fast as they can.
Players can choose to play solo and race against the clock or play
against their friends to see whose all-female pit crew can hammer,
screw and wrench the fastest on a giant broken wedding cake! Inspired
grease monkeys can even play online and see whose girls can out-fix
their opponents on an aircraft carrier, a broken toilet, a pot of
sunflowers, a car with a cake under its hood and many more zany
Pit Crew Panic! is full of crazy frantic action! As broken “WHATSITS”
race up to the awaiting pit crew, players will have the power to
assign each of their pit crew girls to different sections of the
broken item that needs to be fixed. Players have to hurry before
timers run out since sections of the broken “WHATSITS” could explode
like ticking time bombs or spew automotive fluids and nearby pit crew
girls will get stunned or slip!
Players can also help out their pit crew girls in sticky fix-it
situations by using their Wii Remote just like a real pit crew tool.
Just like any good grease monkey would use a screwdriver, wrench or
other pit crew tools, players can use the Wii Remote to hammer away
with up and down swings or tighten bolts with a turn of the wrist.
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! has taken gameplay with the Wii Remote to fun and
creative new extremes,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product
Development at Hudson Entertainment. “The game has a unique sense of
humor which players will appreciate as they try to use the Wii Remote
as a blowtorch to fix a space station or as a wrench to fix a
Pit Crew Panic! is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software
