Hop aboard the Royal Express as the Hardy Boys take a journey to the past on a classic steam train through some of the great capital cities of Europe in the hope of discovering the secret of a lost princess and a priceless treasure hidden from the world for nearly 100 years.
“We are excited to again partner with SEGA of America in bringing fans the very best in mystery/adventure games, and do so with such a powerful license as The Hardy Boys,” said Megan Gaiser, president and CEO of Her Interactive. “With two great protagonists headlining a beloved series of mystery classics, we believe that The Hardy Boys is the perfect complement to our Nancy Drew series and will benefit greatly from our proven expertise in the genre.”
The longest running book series of all-time will make its debut on the Nintendo DS™ this coming spring with The Hardy Boys: Treasure on the Tracks. In the game, players assume the role of Frank and Joe Hardy who have been invited onboard the Royal Express, an extravagant rail line traveling from Paris to St. Petersburg.
Following the mysterious trail of the Romanov Family treasure, the Hardy Boys venture across a rich European landscape with stops at Vienna, Paris, Prague, and St. Petersburg. While onboard, players will search for hidden clues, explore the train cars, interrogate passengers and solve interactive puzzles as they attempt to discover what happened to the ‘lost’ treasure and unlock the century old secret of the Romanovs.
The Hardy Boys: Treasure on the Tracks will be available Spring 2009 on the Nintendo DS for purchase at retailers nationwide, as well as from the Her Interactive website for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
