Opportunism knocks

Just recently, as some of you may be aware, the 100 year anniversary has passed for the maiden voyage and sinking of the RMS Titanic, a tragedy that has been re-told in television documentaries, a number of books and most notably in one of the most successful Hollywood movies of all time. The centenary hasn't completely passed gaming by, however, as we've picked up on a title that's recently been released for Wii and DS.

Titanic Mystery, a title that appears to have been released in Europe way back in May 2010, has just been published in North America by O-Games. The title is set on a fictional Titanic II, with the threat — according to the press release below — being a hidden bomb. It seems like one way to remember the centenary of a major disaster is to release a hidden-object puzzle game.

As the culmination of Titanic's 100th anniversary approaches, experience the rich history of that fateful voyage with Titanic Mystery, now available for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. With hidden historical treasures and mysterious secrets waiting to be uncovered, players can commemorate the ship's maiden voyage in 1912 with the entertaining and informative adventure-based game, Titanic Mystery.

Players will find themselves at a pivotal moment in history as they search for a hidden bomb on-board the new ocean liner, Titanic II.
