REDWOOD CITY, CA – September 2, 2008 – Hudson Entertainment, the North
American publishing arm of Hudson Soft, today announced My Aquarium
for WiiWare on the Wii is now available for digital download.
My Aquarium is an all-new, original IP for WiiWare that brings the
relaxation of an aquarium to players using the Wii. It’s the perfect
form of entertainment for those who would love to own fish, but don’t
have room, money or time to maintain a real fish tank. My Aquarium
will bring a peaceful and soothing environment into households with a
Wii, and will leave behind a maintenance-free aquatic experience. Have
to go away for a while? No worries- you don’t need to ask a friend to
feed the fish for you. In fact, you might even find a brand new fish
when you come back!
“My Aquarium is the perfect game to bring families together, offering a
unique, calming experience and endless hours of amusement and
relaxation,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development
at Hudson Entertainment. “Players can simply relax and enjoy the fish,
without worrying about maintenance, like feeding and cleaning, that
comes with a real aquarium.”
In My Aquarium, Wii owners can customize their aquarium to suit their
own personal tastes. Players can decide exactly which fish they want
to live in their aquarium and what decorations they’ll get to enjoy.
In addition, users can also choose the glass color, lighting,
background design, style of floor, rocks, and plant life for the world
the fish will inhabit. Players can also mix and match different fish
in up to six individual aquariums. Aquariums can even be shared with
friends using WiiConnect24 if they also have My Aquarium.
One of the most unique features of My Aquarium is that it interacts
with the Wii’s Forecast Channel, providing an amazingly realistic
aquatic experience. My Aquarium actually enables players’ tank
conditions to change depending on the actual weather in their area!
My Aquarium includes a wide selection of colorful fish and a realistic
aquatic experience for the entire family to enjoy. There are 50
different types of fish to choose, and the more gamers play, the more
fish they’ll get! Players can select from three different types of
food when feeding their fish, and the fish can even be interacted
with. Aquarium owners can learn more about their fish in My Aquarium’s
