BPM Racing Gets the Green Light
YUKE'S Company of America To Bring Innovative Rhythm Racing Title To WiiWare
CHICAGO - Sept. 30, 2008
YUKE'S Company of America, the U.S. publishing arm of Japanese game developer YUKE'S Company Limited, today announced it will be publishing BPM Racing for WiiWare™. Set to turn heads out of the starting gate and turn up the volume on television sets, BPM Racing complements white knuckle racing with a pulsating, diverse electronic soundtrack for a complete visual and audio driving experience. Riders will be rewarded for staying in rhythm with increased speeds, handling, and score multipliers, even getting the opportunity to be the DJ by adding their own samples and effects to various soundtracks.
“The racing genre is ripe for a new, innovative direction and increasing the aural experience seemed like an obvious choice.” said Ken Koyama, Director of Business Development at YUKE’S Company of America. “BPM Racing will reinvent the relationship between a racing game and its soundtrack."
BPM Racing isn’t the only title being driven onto WiiWare by YUKE’S Company of America. “We have several titles in addition to BPM currently planned for WiiWare,” added Ken. “The opportunity to be a part of Nintendo’s surge into the online market is very exciting.”
BPM Racing is scheduled for release in early 2009.
