Hudson Officially Announces Pop 'Em Drop 'Em Samegame
Posted by Corbie Dillard
Although we've known about Hudson's upcoming WiiWare title Pop 'Em Drop 'Em Samegame for several months now, we haven't had a lot of information on the title. Today Hudson has sent out the official press release for the game that gives out a few new tidbits of information and would lead us to believe that the game must be on its way to the North American and European WiiWare services soon.
Hudson also hinted to us that their upcoming Adventure Island WiiWare title is supposed to hit the service sometime in April 2009. We're currently trying to pry some more information out of them regarding the game and we'll post any new information and screenshots of the game as soon as they become available.

Hudson Entertainment, the North American publishing arm for HUDSON SOFT, today announced that it will launch Pop ‘Em Drop ‘Em Samegame, a new puzzle game available for WiiWare™. Designed for casual players, the game is simple to play but hard to master and has multiplayer fun for up to four players.
Pop 'Em Drop 'Em Samegame features classic puzzle gameplay in which players match two or more colored blocks to clear them. As blocks are cleared, the remaining blocks will shift. If players are skilled enough, bonus points are awarded when all blocks are cleared. The game allows for play with up to four friends at home in three fast-paced multiplayer modes: Fame Game, Shame Game and Blame Game. Players can also customize the game by changing the block design and backgrounds.
The game features simple, easy to understand puzzle elements that casual gamers will love. It is easy and addictive to play but challenging to master. Players simply need to match two or more colored blocks and hit a button. It’s that easy! The challenge comes when players advance and try to maximize their score.
"Pop 'Em Drop 'Em Samegame is the most accessible casual puzzle game available on WiiWare," said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. "This game is for casual game fans who enjoy the simplicity and addictive fun of classic puzzle gameplay.”
Pop ‘Em Drop ‘Em Samegame is rated E for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
