EL SEGUNDO, Calif. – August 28, 2007 – Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. today announced it has shipped Track & Field Challenge, an original TV Plug and Play video game that lets children compete in a virtual decathlon. Using a custom gaming mat, players will only need a television and a competitive spirit to take part in more than seven different world class sports events.

A Plug and Play video game, Track & Field Challenge connects directly to any TV without the use of a game console to deliver hours of competitive fun. Featuring more than seven different track and field events such as the 100 meter dash, javelin throw and high Jump, players can run in place and jump on the gaming mat to recreate the on-screen action as if they were taking part in an actual decathlon. Through a variety of actions that can be performed on the gaming mat, Track & Field Challenge immerses players in the competitive atmosphere of world class track and field while also promoting an active lifestyle.

The game also features three unlockable events as well as the ability for players to monitor how many calories they have burned at the end of each gameplay session. Each of the game’s events can be played simultaneously with a friend using just one gaming mat.

Track & Field Challenge is available for an SRP of $29.99. For more information, please visit www.konami.com
