EA Ships TY the Tasmanian Tiger

EA (Nasdaq:ERTS - News) today announced that it has begun to ship in North America its new character-based action game, TY the Tasmanian Tiger for the PlayStation® 2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube(TM). The game drops players into the richly animated, 3D backdrop of Australia, where as the boomerang-wielding TY character, players will go "down under" for a variety of Outback-themed adventures. TY has always believed that he’s the lone remaining Tasmanian Tiger. During a chance meeting with a mystical Bunyip elder, TY discovers that his fellow Tasmanian Tigers are still alive, but trapped in another world called Dreamtime. In order to unlock and open the portal to Dreamtime, TY will go through a series of adventures spread over a wide range of locations and meet an assortment of madcap characters that are inspired by real-life animals indigenous to Australia. The game features many elements unique to character-based action games including a wide selection of gameplay styles like combat, riding, and puzzles as well as an array of mini-games and boss battles. Players can freely explore and discover each of the expansive Aussie environments while controlling TY who can run, jump, swim and glide. Moreover, players will have fun controlling TY and his arsenal of hi-tech boomerangs, as well as using his fierce "chomping" abilities to take on the many minions of the evil Boss Cass. The game was developed by Krome Studios, an Australia-based entertainment software company. EA is publishing and distributing the game under the EA GAMES brand. TY the Tasmanian Tiger carries an ESRB rating of "E" (Everyone) and MSRP of $39.99. For more information, visit TY the Tasmanian Tiger web site at or the EA press web site,
