HI's 3D Rendering Engine "MascotCapsule(R) V3" Is Adopted for Capcom's Action Video Game "Ghost'n Goblins(TM) Gold Knights" for iPhone(R) and iPod(R)touch

TOKYO — (BUSINESS WIRE) — January 25, 2010 — HI CORPORATION (JASDAQ:3846)(ISIN:JP3160860007)(Headquarters: Tokyo, Japan; President and CEO: Kazuo Kawabata; hereinafter "HI") announced today that HI's 3D rendering engine "MascotCapsule V3" (hereinafter "V3") has been adopted by Capcom Co., Ltd. (Headquarters: Osaka, Japan; President and COO; Haruhiro Tsujimoto; hereinafter "Capcom") for their game "Ghost'n GoblinsGold Knights" developed for "iPhone" and "iPod touch" produced by Apple Inc. (Headquarters: Cupertino, California, United States; CEO: Steve Jobs).

V3 has been embedded in a wide range of mobile phones around the world, from low-end models to high-end models, including iPhone and iPod touch. 3D mobile games developed with V3 are therefore possible to easily port to iPhone and iPod touch. Ghost'n Goblins Gold Knights was originally developed with V3 for NTT DoCoMo mobile phones in Japan, and utilizing the existing 3D modeling and animation data facilitated the porting to iPhone and iPod touch and reduced the development workload.

"Using V3, we were able to get the porting done easily by utilizing the models and textures originally created for Japanese mobile phones. This allowed us to fully use our resources to enhance the quality of the game, " said Kosei Ito, Business Development Section, Mobile Contents Development Department, R&D Management Group at Capcom. "We hope that the global launch of other popular legacy titles will also be encouraged by MascotCapsule engine in the future."

HI will make efforts to expand the use of MascotCapsule in order to be used for more content development as well as to contribute to the worldwide dissemination of the high-quality content.
