Destineer's ‘Fullmetal Alchemist® Trading Card Game’ for

Nintendo DS™ Ships to Stores!

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – July 11, 2007– They say that a winning hand in cards is a magical thing, and that's literally true in Destineer's Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Card Game for Nintendo DS! The second game in Destineer's Fullmetal Alchemist series, the Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Card game transmutes the power of alchemy into card form, and will materialize on shelves in late August.

A completely accurate translation of the popular Fullmetal Alchemist trading card series by Press Pass, Inc (formerly JoyRide Entertainment), the Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Card Game brings the collectible strategy game to the Nintendo DS with nearly 500 cards, a variety of play modes, and extensive touch screen support.

Featuring the most popular characters from the anime series, the Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Card Game allows you to battle against either AI-controlled opponents or friends via the Nintendo DS' Wi-Fi capabilities. Earn new cards in Character mode, learn to play in Tutorial mode, or even build your ideal deck in Fantasy mode. With every card from the original trading card set and the complete Blood and Water expansion, the Nintendo DS version of the Fullmetal Alchemist Trading Card Game has everything that both trading card fans and Fullmetal Alchemist aficionados could want, including:

Multiple play modes, including Single match, Character mode, Fantasy mode, and Multiplayer via Wi-Fi
The complete rule set from the Press Pass Fullmetal Alchemist trading card game
Unlockable characters like Edward Elric, Roy Mustang, Father Cornello and Lust, complete with voiceovers from the original English cast

Build and save your own custom decks
Sounds, music and voices from the Fullmetal Alchemist series on Adult Swim
