Casual Wii Puzzler Octomania Scuttles into Stores

Atlus announces that Octomania, the Wii arcade puzzler with multiplayer for four and support for online play via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection, is now in stores. The beautiful land of Lonronpia has a small problem - scratch that - hundreds of thousands of small problems (and by problems we, of course, mean octopi). Solve the infestation in story mode, challenge a friend or three in a local multiplayer match, or take your game online and go head-to-head with a friend or random foe.

...On a peaceful day in the land of Lonronpia, Kari, an apprentice magician, is summoning up her favorite treat. When her spell goes horribly awry, hundreds of thousands of colored octopi suddenly rain down from the clouds. A guardian angel appears before her, asking Kari to rid the land of the octopi and undo the damage of her failed spell.

Key Features:
- Encounter zany foes on your quest to rid Lonronpia of octopi! Story mode takes you to multiple locales to battle a variety of clever and humorous opponents, while Arcade mode lets you jump straight into the action. You can even opt to play in "Endless mode", where it's all about how long you can hang in there before your screen fills up.
- Local head-to-head and Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection multiplayer modes! Whether you're playing alone, alongside a friend, or against a random player online, the fast-paced puzzle gameplay is always a blast. Two players can face off online, and up to four players can play in local multiplayer.
- Tons of content for a great price. Combo chains, special attacks, multiple difficulty levels Experienced gamers will find a lot to enjoy, but newcomers will find just as much fun to be had. And with the included tutorial mode, anyone can pick it up and play.

Octomania has been rated "E" for Everyone by the ESRB for Comic Mischief and Mild Suggestive Themes.
