DSi Camera Allows Players to Turn Nagging Sisters or Grumpy Neighbors Into Digital Monsters

Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today reveals two live-action trailers for the upcoming turn-based strategy RPG, Foto Showdown for the Nintendo DSi™. The new trailers give gamers a glimpse at how they can incorporate the real world into virtual gameplay using the DSi camera functionality. In the first live action trailer, an irritating big sister is transformed into a warrior bred Orc. The second trailer details how easy it is to transform real-life enemies including a snarly dog, a big bad bully and a grumpy next-door neighbor into digital monsters ready for battle.

Foto Showdown allows players to take photos with the DSi camera, which uses advanced color recognition to spawn monsters based on the dominant colors in those photos. Players pit their battle-tested monsters against rivals in no-holds-barred duels that put the unique powers of each monster to the test. As players progress through more than 70 levels, winning tournaments and beating opponents, they will be able to upgrade their powers, purchase more powerful weapons, as well as add medicine and tools providing the ability to wreak greater havoc on their duelist partner.The longer a player plays, the stronger they get.

Foto Showdown is scheduled for release in March 2010 for the Nintendo DSi™. To download the trailers and for more information, please visit: www.konami.com/downloads.
