REDWOOD CITY, Calif. August 23, 2006 Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced it will publish a sequel to last year's popular survival adventure game Lost in Blue. Entitled Lost in Blue 2, the game will be released for the Nintendo DS handheld system in early 2007.
The original Lost in Blue won a legion of fans with its clever setting and compelling use of the Nintendo DS' capabilities. For Lost in Blue 2, the game will continue to take advantage of the handheld system's unique features and provide an even more extreme adventure. The player is cast as a young man who, along with a female friend, are washed up on the beach of an apparently deserted island. Working together, the pair must search for a way off the island as well as survive the many dangers that lay ahead.
In Lost in Blue 2, players must think about how they will survive in their environment. Initially, this involves finding food and weapons, before exploring the island. But, as in real life, exploration is tiring, so the pair must rest, drink water to avoid dehydration, and find further means of sustenance especially as the mountainous nature of the island also necessitates the heroes climbing steep rock faces and hills.
In addition to the physical elements the pair faces, Lost in Blue 2 also makes more extensive use of the touch screen capabilities of the Nintendo DS. Items are easily collected and examined by the player, while the stylus is used for carpentry, food preparation and exploration. The two characters also have specific individual skills that they use to their advantage to get through the game.
Other new elements include the ability to fight wild animals, using whatever weapons the pair have made or found. Similarly, the island's tropical location leaves the heroes exposed to hurricanes and earthquakes, adding yet another unpredictable element to a game that constantly surprises and challenges the player.
