    REDWOOD CITY, Calif., April 17 /PRNewswire/ --
 The 3DO Company (Nasdaq: THDO) today announced that the Heroes of Might and
 Magic:  Quest for the DragonBone Staff game for the PlayStation(R)2 computer
 entertainment system has shipped to retail outlets throughout North America.
 The award-winning Heroes of Might and Magic world comes to the PlayStation 2
 console with an original game engine and streamlined play for top-notch
 strategy-adventure excitement.
     An assassin's poison races through the King's veins and he's certain to
 die unless you can retrieve the DragonBone Staff, a powerful weapon that is
 also the strongest healing device ever created. Take on the role of Knight,
 Barbarian, Sorceress, or Paladin and travel by land, sea, and air to explore
 the vast and varied landscape. Choose your weapons and build your army wisely
 to capture villains and lay siege to enemy castles. Through exploration and
 battle the resting place of the DragonBone Staff will finally be revealed.
     Randomized gameplay means events unfold differently each time you begin a
 new game, and Heroes is rated "Everyone," so it's perfect for all ages to
 enjoy.
