New WiiWare title lands on Christmas Day

If your Christmas Day preparations look like they're missing a certain je ne sais quoi that can only be provided by an enchanting medieval adventure, you may just be in luck. We've just received the latest news from Playtainment that their upcoming hidden object game The Mystery of Whiterock Castle will be hitting the European WiiWare servers on December 25th, ready to fill your day with all the joy that finding objects can bring.

Here's the latest press release, and be sure to check out its game page to see some of the latest screenshots.

By releasing The Mystery of Whiterock Castle today, Playtainment became the first German publisher to make their debut on WiiWare™. The hidden object game, coming on 25th December 2009, lets players of all ages embark on an enchanting medieval adventure.

The charming story of The Mystery of Whiterock Castle tells the tale of the desperate search of a young squire for his favorite playmate. The little princess has mysteriously vanished from her chambers. Among lovingly designed, hand-painted settings, players take on the role of the young squire, rummaging through numerous chambers and gloomy dungeons, equipped with a sword, a lantern, and a magnifying glass. While searching, the player will receive helpful hints from many peculiar characters featured in the amusing story. From cook to castle ghost – everyone is on our young hero's side, showing him the way through the royal residence.

The game principle of The Mystery of Whiterock Castle is deliberately designed to be suitable for children, and especially suited for young players and families. Hidden objects must be found and collected using the Wii Remote in ten different scenarios, alone, together, or competing against each other. The hand-painted objects are randomly shown and positioned in the levels, allowing for ever new challenging game constellations. Secret hiding places, bonus items, plus various multi-player modes and highscore lists help make the game a thoroughly entertaining pastime for the whole family.

‘The Mystery of Whiterock Castle’ is available for download on 25th December 2009 through Nintendo WiiWare - UK and Europe. In US 'The Mystery of Whiterock Castle' will be available for download in 1st Quarter 2010.

I loved these types of games as a kid (on paper). Might try it out, waiting on the review first of course. 700 points seems kind of steep and an odd price point.
