Emily the Strange Strangerous for Nintendo DS/DSi hits stores this TODAY

Letchworth, UK – 10/06/2011  Emily the Strange “Strangerous” for Nintendo DS/DSi is a puzzle and adventure story based around Emily the Strange and her missing kittens spanning 6 chapters and over 60 puzzles! Emily the Strange Strangerous” is set to expand the range of games for girls in the puzzle/adventure game genre on Nintendo DS/DSi by offering female gamers the unique opportunity to play through over 50+ hours of puzzles and riddles while navigating the world of Emily. Emily the Strange “Strangerous” brings together the strengths of the Emily brand and builds upon the established puzzle/adventure games format.

Emily the Strange has been an iconic character since the early 1990's and has become a beloved counterculture icon all around the world. In her earliest years, she was a quiet but sharp-witted stranger, slinging philosophy and cultural observations in a series of hand-screened t-shirts and stickers. As her presence grew and became a standard in the cultural underground, Emily's own story began to emerge in a series of gift books, then comic-books and graphic novels, and now a novel series for young adults. “Strangerous” looks to give gamers the chance to experience Emily the Strange in a whole new environment and for the first time, to control and interact with Emily!

Emily the Strange “Strangerous” for Nintendo DS/DSi will be released in the UK 10th June. Visit
