 Parker Brothers Brings CLUE Classic Detective Board Game
 to Life for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System
 BEVERLY, Mass., May 22 /PRNewswire/ -- The world's most famous detective game will soon come to life as Parker Brothers introduces CLUE(R) to be played on the Super Nintendo Entertainment System(R). This new video game, which will make its debut at the Consumer Electronics Show on May 28 in Chicago, has all the classic features of the popular whodunit board game, while adding sophisticated, digitized voice enhancements, vibrant graphics and hundreds of animated vignettes.
 The CLUE SNES game allows players, for the first time ever, to play the CLUE game either by themselves or with friends, since it allows Super NES players to compete with up to five computer opponents. As in the original classic game, the object is to determine who killed Mr. Boddy, in which room of his mansion and with what weapon. Players watch their favorite characters come to life -- from Professor Plum, Miss Scarlet and Mrs. Peacock to Mr. Green, Colonel Mustard and Mrs. White. Enhanced with sophisticated computer graphics, the murder- mystery excitement of the famous detective game is taken to a new level. As players move from room to room, they collect clues by making Suggestions, conducting Interrogations and, finally, making an Accusation of Whodunit, where and with what Weapon.
 "CLUE Super NES combines the familiarity of this classic board game with the enhanced computer features and extensive graphics offered by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, bringing this favorite among young and old alike into the 1990s," said Madelene Shear, Parker Brothers' vice president of marketing. "All the player needs is his or her own sleuthing skills to meet the challenge of this exciting game."
 The CLUE SNES game will be available in toy, department and chain stores nationwide in the fall of 1992 at a suggested retail price of $49.99.
 Parker Brothers is owned by Hasbro Inc., the world's largest toy and game company.
