REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – August 23, 2006 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., announced today that Pocket Racers, the dark yet zany new racing game for the PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, will be available this fall. A unique twist on handheld racing games, Pocket Racers redefines the term “road rage” by offering players the chance to drive for their soul against an evil Nemesis in detailed racing environments, either solo or with friends.

In Konami’s Pocket Racers, an evil Nemesis has crashed a party by summoning dark sorcery and turning all the guests into tiny cars – and placing them in an ongoing race for their souls. In every corner and cranny of a giant house, players will find more than a dozen different race tracks with breathtaking jumps, drops, obstacles, twists and turns as they race to victory or meet certain doom. Race around hallways, navigate kitchen counters, weave between chair legs and dodge party debris in 15 unique indoor environments. Pocket Racers provides an extensive array of 16 colorful vehicles – from flashy rear-wheel drive sports cars to rough and tough four-wheel drive off-roaders. In addition, players will find a variety of sinister Power Ups from nitro boosts to homing missiles to give them an edge against opponents.

With an extensive solo play option, Pocket Racers boasts never ending fun with intense time trials, a skill-honing practice mode, death defying soul races and even a head-to-head race against the Nemesis himself. With the PSP system’s wireless option, up to four players can enter into the multiplayer mode and compete in the white knuckling versus mode, ball-bouncing soccer matches or object-tagging domination rounds.
