Glendale, CA – November 13, 2008 – Ignition Entertainment Ltd., a UTV Enterprise, a worldwide publisher and developer of videogames, in conjunction with Marvelous Interactive Inc. and developer Killaware, announced today that Lux-Pain for Nintendo DS™, the all-new text-based adventure game, will set its “eye” on North America in March 2009.
Showcasing the work of hot Japanese animator Robin Kishiwada, whose credits include cover illustrations for Eureka Seven series, Lux-Pain features music composed by Kenji Ito, well-known for the music in SaGa, Mana, and Culdcept series’, and Yasuyuki Suzuki, of Operation Logic Bomb, Tail of the Sun, and Space Invaders Extreme fame.
Lux-Pain is set in historical Kisaragi City, a town plagued by mysteries from small mishaps to murders - with no logical explanation as to why these events occur. It seems “Silent”, a worm born through hate and sadness, has infected humans and forced them to commit atrocious crimes. The hero’s parents are victims of such crimes. To avenge his parents, Atsuki goes through a dangerous operation to acquire Lux-Pain in his left arm, a power so strong that his left eye turns golden when using it to seek and destroy Silent for good.
“Here at Ignition, we are a focused team of passionate gamers who are always on the look for unique, quality games,” said Ajay Chadha, President of Ignition Entertainment. “We are delighted to have the opportunity to work with Marvelous again to bring the profound adventure of Lux-Pain to gamers everywhere!”
“We are very excited to be working with Ignition Entertainment to bring Lux-Pain to the U.S.” said Yasuhiro Wada, Managing Director of Marvelous Entertainment. “Lux-Pain is engrossing and blood-chilling and we hope gamers will become addicted to Atsuki and the darkness of Kisaragi City.”
