KONAMI UNVEILS NEW DETAILS AND MINI-GAMES FOR WALK IT OUT!

Over 100 Songs Awaits Players in this Innovative Game That Brings Fitness, Rhythm&Exploration To Wii™ in January 2010

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today unveiled new details and mini-game mechanics for Walk It Out! Coming to retail stores nationwide on Wii™ in January 2010, Walk It Out! is a unique game that marries a high-energy/low impact fitness game with rhythm-based gameplay to make for a fun and rewarding exer-gaming experience for the whole family.

Walk It Out! sets itself apart from other fitness games by offering one of the largest and most diverse on-disc music libraries of ANY game across all genres. Players can step to the beat to over 100 great songs, including licensed master tracks and re-records of some of yesterday and today's hottest artists (Demi Lovato, Jesse McCartney, Ne-Yo and more) to original songs from some of the same artists who created music for the legendary DanceDanceRevolution? series.

In addition to the robust musical content, Walk It Out! core appeal is the unique gameplay elements. Part exploration and part fitness game, players step to the beat to unlock the secrets of an ever-growing and expansive in-game world. Stroll past oceanside harbors, gaze up at skyscrapers, amble through bustling city squares, parks and other vistas. The whole while, players are reinforced of their efforts as the game tracks progress with in-game charts, graphs and visuals to show calories burned, distance traveled, steps taken and more!

In addition to the main exploration game, which two players can play cooperatively, Walk It Out! also contains mini-games and puzzles to offer additional modes of gameplay that utilize the full library of music you've unlocked in the main game. Some of the fun and exciting games include:

Whack-a-Slack: Stomp on Slackies (negative energy creatures) as they emerge through circles corresponding to the directional arrows on your DanceDanceRevolution controller or your Wii Remote™ controller. Select your difficulty, and then play through a single song you've unlocked in the main game or endless to play as long as you want!

Psycolo: Solve a brainteaser while you step to the rhythm of one of your favorite songs to keep your health up!

Smash 'n' Run!: Put a good record on, chase down those Slackies and whack them with your hammer! Build up your hammer by moving to the beat so that you can smash even bigger and lazier Slackies!

Walk It Out! has a very easy-to-use control scheme and is compatible with a DanceDanceRevolution Controller or a Wii Balance Board™. In addition, the game can be played with just the Wii Remote and Nunchuk™ as well.

Walk It Out! for Wii will be available in January 2010. For screenshots, product information and more, please visit www.konami.com/downloads.
