Mind Candy Partners With Activision Publishing, Inc. On New Moshi Monstersâ¿¢ Video Game Katsuma Unleashed

NEW YORK, July 24, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Mind Candy, the entertainment company behind the successful kids' franchise Moshi Monsters™, today announced Katsuma Unleashed , a new video game created in its on-going partnership with Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard (Nasdaq: ATVI). Currently in development at UK-based studio Sumo Digital Ltd. for the Nintendo DS™ and 3DS™ handheld gaming systems, the game is planned to hit store shelves on October 11, 2013 in Europe, and on November 5, 2013 in North America.

Katsuma Unleashed is a side-scrolling, action-adventure platform game rendered in a beautiful 3D cartoon style and designed to appeal to Moshi fans of all ages across the globe. In a move away from the previous two titles, the game will feature stand-alone hero character Katsuma. As the franchise's most popular Moshi Monster, players will embark on a voyage with Katsuma through brand new worlds packed with mini arcade challenges and boss battles. Along the way, Katsuma will have to battle enemy characters using powerful new capabilities, including Furi's Smash and Diavlo's Flight, in order to rescue other Moshi Monsters - fur will certainly fly! Another exciting feature available in the 3DS version of Katsuma Unleashed is StreetPass™* secrets - 18 huge, explorable maps and monster attack games where users get to play as each of the Moshi Monsters, each with their own unique set of moves.

"We're delighted to continue our partnership with Activision on our third Nintendo title, and we are hugely inspired by the amazing talents of Sumo Digital who have developed some fantastic games in the past," said Andy Matjaszek, Sr. Global Marketing Manager at Mind Candy. "This time around, with Katsuma Unleashed we've broken out Katsuma as a stand-alone character to deliver an all-new, incredible Moshi Monsters game that fans of all ages can enjoy."

Katsuma Unleashed is Mind Candy's third Nintendo DS/3DS title, following the success of its two previous releases, Moshi Monsters™: Moshlings Zoo, which topped the UK DS charts for a record-breaking 23 consecutive weeks, and Moshi Monsters™: Moshlings Theme Park, which also held an impressive chart position reaching number one in 2012 for four consecutive weeks.**

Katsuma Unleashed for Nintendo 3DS™ is rated E (Everyone) by the ESRB. Katsuma Unleashed for Nintendo DS™ is not yet rated by the ESRB. Additional details about the game, as well as pre-sale opportunities will be made available soon.

* Street Pass is an exclusive feature for the 3DS version
