Burlingame, Calif., September 30, 2008 – Natsume, a worldwide developer
and publisher of family-oriented video games, announced today that
Princess Debut for the Nintendo DS has officially shipped to retail
for an MSRP of $29.99. Princess Debut continues Natsume’s commitment
to publishing family-friendly interactive entertainment. Perfect for
girls of all ages and skill levels, the rhythm and adventure title
offers girls the chance to step into an enchanting world where they
are the princess of a magical kingdom.

“Parents looking for an age-appropriate video game either right now or
as a holiday gift this year need to look no farther than the DS
section of their local video game store,” said Hiro Maekawa, President
and CEO at Natsume. “Princess Debut is the perfect addition to any
family’s library of Nintendo DS titles. The game has a wonderful
story, fun characters, and some of the most beautiful and fluid
dancing ever seen in any game.”

In the game, players find themselves in a fantasy world where they have
30 days to get ready for the big ball; they’ll have to master their
dance moves and win over one of the six handsome princes to be their
partner. They’ll meet and woo the princes through the game’s large,
branching storyline. Once the player convinces a prince to be their
dancing partner, it’s time to go out on the dance floor! By utilizing
the Touch Screen, players guide their character gracefully across the
dance floor while matching their partner’s rhythm. All of the dances
in the game are taken from motion-captured professional dancers, so
the game is just as impressive to watch as it is fun to play.

Princess Debut offers four modes of play including Story, Ballroom,
Practice, and Movie. With 20 outfits to find, 14 unique endings to
experience, and 18 different kinds of music and dance styles to choose
from (including Waltz, Latin Dance, Tango, Ballroom, and much more),
there’s no shortage of things to see and do!

Princess Debut is the perfect holiday gift for any girl who has always
dreamed of becoming a princess and finding her own Prince Charming!
Princess Debut is now available exclusively for the Nintendo DS.

Princess Debut is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software
Ratings Board (ESRB).
