MUMBAI: Buena Vista Games, Inc. (BVG), the interactive entertainment arm of The Walt Disney Company has announced that it is creating and publishing the company's first video game based on an original property, Spectrobes.

Set to release exclusively for the Nintendo DS, Spectrobes is an anime-inspired action/role playing game that is being developed by Jupiter Corporation in Kyoto. The announcement was made this morning from BVG's local offices in Tokyo.

Spectrobes is an anime-inspired action/role playing game created by Japanese developer Jupiter and published by Buena Vista Games.

"We've experienced tremendous success developing new intellectual properties such as Kingdome Hearts in Japan, and the innovation and style of Spectrobes are a perfect fit for the expertise of renowned developer Jupiter Corporation," said Buena Vista Games senior VP and GM Graham Hopper.

"Spectrobes is a new and unique property with endless potential for a dynamic entertainment company such as The Walt Disney Company. There is tremendous interest in this franchise from other divisions such as media networks, online and consumer products."

"Based on BVG's original concept and utilizing the creative style of Japanese anime, manga and traditional Japanese art, Spectrobes is an innovative game developed by the outstanding team at Jupiter," said BVG Japan producer Kentaro Hisai. "The game's intense real-time battle and unique excavation features should enthrall gamers throughout the world."

Spectrobes introduces two junior Interplanetary Patrol officers named Rallen and Jeena who learn of strange, prehistoric creatures called Spectrobes that possess special powers. These fossilized Spectrobes hold the key to defeating a vicious and merciless force, known only as the Krawl that threatens to destroy the galaxy. The two heroes embark on a mission to save their galaxy - to do so they must excavate, awaken, train and collect all the Spectrobes they can and battle to defeat the Krawl, informs an official release.

Spectrobes is infused with the edgy, highly stylized look and feel of Japanese anime and manga, and uniquely combines original characters, a compelling story and breakthrough gameplay. Spectrobes allows players to excavate, train and battle with nearly 500 unique creatures, utilizing every interactive feature of the Nintendo DS.

Once the creature is excavated using the touch screen portion of the Nintendo DS, the Spectrobe is then awakened and can be utilized in real-time battles with enemies. Players must collect, train and help their Spectrobes evolve in order to progress and succeed in the game. With highly customizable elements and powers, each Spectrobe is unique to individual game players.

The release date for Spectrobes will be announced later.
