Yuke's digital distribution division brings a follow-up to the DS puzzle game.

Akinai Games, Yuke's recently formed digital distribution division, announced NEVES Plus, a follow-up to their DS title that was released in 2007. NEVES Plus is a puzzle game that involves tangram-style puzzles, and trying to fit various pieces into a silhouette to complete the puzzle.

CHICAGO - March 19, 2009

Akinai Games, a publisher of digitally distributed games for next-generation platforms, today announced NEVES Plus, their latest addition to Nintendo's WiiWare™ game service. NEVES Plus is a deceptively challenging puzzle game that packs over 500 tangram-style puzzles appropriate for gamers of all ages. The game will go live on WiiWare in Q2, 2009.

"NEVES Plus is a great follow-up to the original Nintendo DS™ version, and now we've introduced plenty of multiplayer modes that bring the game to the center of family entertainment," said Nate Fitt, Marketing Manager at Akinai Games. "With an Egyptian-themed style, new puzzles, and a variety of modes, NEVES Plus promises hours of engaging and addictive gameplay."

In NEVES Plus, players solve the 500+ different puzzles by moving, rotating, and flipping the seven simple 'Lucky' stone pieces into each silhouette puzzle with the Wii Remote™. You can play alone, or invite your friends in on the fun since new players can join in anytime. Whether you work co-operatively or go head-to-head, NEVES Plus will charm you with its tricky silhouette puzzles.

"Puzzle games are a timeless and highly-entertaining genre for everyone," said Ken Koyama, Director of Business Development at Akinai Games. "With NEVES Plus, our focus is to capture the simple-yet-riveting appeal of a crossword or Sudoku puzzle, and bring the fun of tangram-style puzzles to a whole new audience.”


• Five different modes you can play alone or with up to 4 people 

• Test your observation skills against friends in the Party Trivia mode

• Over 500 puzzles to provide hours of play

• Easy to use controls for the Wii™ make it accessible and fun for the whole family


I actually hav e the first one... it's very pleasant and claming and makes me feel peaceful! ^_^

I was vaguely interested in the DS version, but this kind of game makes a lot more sense on WiiWare, as the value proposition is hard to understand with DS game prices.
