Southpeak Games' Big Bang Mini Shipping Now for Nintendo DS™ in North America
MIDLOTHIAN, VA – January 21, 2009 – SouthPeak Games announced today that its one-of-a-kind shooter for Nintendo DS™, Big Bang Mini, has shipped to retailers across the country for the suggested retail price of only $19.99. The title, developed by Arkedo Studio, allows players to create their own fireworks display while shooting enemies out of the sky.

In Big Bang Mini, your objective is to destroy wave upon wave of enemies which in turn lights up the night sky with bursts of colorful fireworks. Use the stylus to dodge enemy fire and debris while collecting stars. Specifically designed with the Nintendo DS touch screen controls in mind, Big Bang Mini packs a challenge that any casual or hardcore shooter fan will enjoy.

“Big Bang Mini is a fresh take on the stale shoot ‘em up genre,” said Melanie Mroz, CEO of SouthPeak Games. “Its bright colors and fantastic animations make it a joy to watch just as its ever challenging levels and options make it a pleasure to play. We are offering this game at a great price point that make it a must buy for any serious gamer.”

In addition to over 90 levels for players to take on in Arcade Mode, Big Bang Mini also sports a Challenge Mode where players can submit their high scores to an online leaderboard using the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection feature, a multiplayer Versus Mode, a task-based Mission Mode, and even a Relax Mode for those that want to shoot fireworks without having to worry about dodging enemies.

Big Bang Mini is available now for a suggested retail price of $19.99, and comes in a lenticular animated box that demonstrates the game in action. It is rated E for Everyone. For more information visit or
