Atlus distribuirá Droplitz

Blitz Arcade ha anunciado vía nota de prensa su reciente trato con Atlus U.S.A. para distribuir Droplitz en Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, PC y iPhone. Steve Stopps, director de proyectos de Blitz Arcade, ha dicho que están «realmente emocionados» con el juego, no sólo por ser una «idea originalmente nuestra, sino porque creemos que es un gran juego. Cuando te das cuenta de que la gente que ha estado trabajando en el juego todo el día sigue jugando por su cuenta, tienes algo especial. También somos realmente afortunados por haber encontrado un colaborador como Atlus, que comparten nuestra pasión y emoción por llevar Droplitz al mundo».Droplitz tiene como objetivo (como uno de los minijuegos de Super Mario 64 DS, parecido) llevar desde la parte superior hasta la inferior de la pantalla una especie de diamantes, o similar, a través de unos caminos que el jugador ha de ir formando modificando una serie de piezas con trozos de recorrido. Es un juego al que así a bote pronto parece muy fácil cogerle el gusto, por lo sencillo de su concepto y por el sistema de combos y puntuaciones que le han metido. Puede ser un título arcade muy interesante; no se sabe cuándo va a salir pero le seguiremos la pista.Junto con la nota de prensa incluían tres imágenes, estas que os enseñamos a continuación.
