HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT RELEASES POOL REVOLUTION: CUE SPORTS FOR DIGITAL DOWNLOAD ON WII

WiiWare Pool Title Features Realistic Controls Using the Wii Remote

REDWOOD CITY, CA– December 29, 2008 - Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm of HUDSON SOFT, today announced that Pool Revolution: Cue Sports™ is now available for WiiWare™. Players no longer need to worry about having enough space for a pool table with this fun and addicting game that can be played against friends in the living room or online.

“Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is the only pool game for WiiWare that lets people play online,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment.“Pool fans can now play with people from all over the world in the comfort of their living rooms.”

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports features realistic controls where gamers use the Wii Remote™ just like an actual cue. The strength of the shot depends on how fast the player moves the remote. For those not quite ready to use an“actual” pool cue, the strength of the shot can be set by using the buttons on the controller.

Players can choose from the most popular types of pool for up to four players, including eight ball, nine ball, rotation, and snooker. An in-game tutorial will help provide descriptions of anything players need to know. Once gamers practice and understand how to play, they can also try performing trick shots in Puzzle Mode. For players ready for a challenge, they can even set up their own! And, for those who feel they are true pool sharks, there is online play for up to four players in a Nintendo? Wi-Fi Connection matchup.

Pool Revolution: Cue Sports is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board.
