MEDIA ALERT: Young Thor Strikes Wallets Everywhere—PlayStation mini Favorite Now on Sale for Limited Time

QUEBEC, CANADA - May 31, 2011

Frima Studio, Canada's leading independent game developer, today announced that the Gods of Olympus have seen fit to allow the discounting of PlayStation? mini title Young Thor, now available for 75% off its retail price at $1.25 USD. The sale price of the adolescent god’s title runs from today through the month of June across all markets, and is exclusively available for PlayStation? Plus members on the PlayStation? Store.

The three Norns– Urd, Skuld and Verdandi– have gone missing, leaving no one to tend to Yggdrasil, the World Tree and connector of all realms. With the world now in chaos, players will take on the role of Young Thor and travel to Midgard and Asgard, battling hordes of mythical creatures from Norse mythology, as they strive to restore balance in both worlds in this fun, all-ages appropriate platformer. Defeat Hel, the mischievous daughter of Loki, along with her two allies Ratatoskr and Nidhogg, and save Yggdrasil once and for all—it’s hammer time!
