In this new story-driven adventure game, players journey through a time-bending adventure to solve the mysteries of the present by changing events of the past.

"A new franchise for Konami, Time Hollow delivers a unique adventure that will challenge and intrigue gamers with the combination of a deep storyline and clever puzzles," said Anthony Crouts, Vice President of Marketing for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "The game has a very unique look and style as the writing and cinematics of the game were done by some of the most gifted and popular talent in Japan."

Featuring a variety of interesting characters that come to life via the words of Junko Kawano, script writer for Suikoden IV, Time Hollow enables players to guide Ethan Kairos on his quest to solve the mysterious disappearance of his family. While on his quest, Ethan comes across the mysterious Hollow Pen - an uncanny object that has the unique power to open portals to the past. Using the stylus pen and dual screen capabilities of the DS, players can use the Hollow Pen to draw portals between past and present. As they progress through their journey, they will encounter a variety of interesting characters that help them guide Ethan on his search for his family.

Incorporating the new gameplay mechanic of the Hollow Pen, players will be able to uncover the truth and save the present by searching through both the present and past. To supplement the gameplay, key scenes are presented in full animation sequences designed by AIC, with the producer from the anime series Blood+ and Gun x Sword and the director of Gundam SEED.
