Special ENTHUSIA Demo Playable At The Ford Motor Company Booth At The 2005 Chicago And New York Auto Shows


REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – February 16, 2005 – Konami Digital Entertainment – America, a division of Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today announced that ENTHUSIA- Professional Racing- will be released exclusively for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system nationwide on Tuesday, May 3, 2005. Featuring true-to-life physics, groundbreaking gameplay mechanics, and pixel-perfect graphics, ENTHUSIA is the most authentic driving experience for auto enthusiasts of all ages.

Players will get a chance to experience the thrill of ENTHUSIA before it ships when the game makes its first public appearances at the Ford Motor Company booth at the Chicago Auto Show on February 11-20 at McCormick Place and at the New York Auto Show on March 25-April 3 at the JakobK.JavitsConvention Center. Three game kiosks will be on display, each loaded with a special playable demo of ENTHUSIA created especially for the Ford Motor Company exhibits. The demo features the 2005 Ford Mustang GT and the 2005 Ford GT -- just two of the hundreds of automobiles from more than 50 of the world’s top auto manufacturers that will be included in the final version of the game. Show attendees will have a chance to put these two stunning, high-performance vehicles through their paces and see why ENTHUSIA is the most realistic driving experience on a video game console.

ENTHUSIA steps away from the norm in the racing genre, opting to focus on driving rather than the time spent “under the hood.” Winning will require superior driving ability, establishing ENTHUSIA as a true simulation for driving enthusiasts who appreciate the details of car physics, performance and motion. The realism of the game is bolstered by the innovative and proprietary Visual Gravity System, which conveys a true sense of G-forces experienced by high-speed driving and maneuvering around a race track. This innovative feature is a first for a driving game and gives gamers the ability to see and “feel” the pressure exerted on a car.

ENTHUSIA will be rated “E” for Everyone by the ESRB. To learn more about ENTHUSIA, visit www.konami.com/enthusia.
