CHICAGO - May 28, 2008

YUKE'S Company of America, the U.S. publishing arm of Japanese game developer YUKE'S Company Limited, announced today that its new title Double D Dodgeball® has received certification to release on Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. Launching this summer, this exclusive Xbox LIVE Arcade title features a unique look and environment combined with intuitive controls and intense gameplay that fans of the classic playground sport will appreciate.

Double D Dodgeball features will include:
- Eight-person multiplayer
- Four modes: Exhibition, Player Match, Ranked Match and Tournament
- GamerScore achievements and online leaderboards
- Four ball types with multiple playing surfaces
- Select between Eastern and Western rules

“With Double D Dodgeball, we’ve been able to capture the spirit of classic playground dodgeball that we all grew up with, integrate a defined set of rules known in the East and West, and take it to Xbox LIVE,” said Ken Koyama, Manager of Product Development at YUKE’S Company of America. “Instead of meeting up on the hot playground, you can go on Xbox LIVE Arcade and blast your friend with ball from the comfort of your couch.”

THE RULES

West Arena:
• Traditional method where two teams square off in an arena separated by a center line.
• Hit an opponent to knock them out.
• “Out” players are sent to the sidelines located behind their team’s side of the court.
