Steal Princess is a puzzle-based platform game developed by Climax and Marvelous and published in North America by Atlus.[2] The game is due a European release by Rising Star Games in September 2009.



The game is divided into larger areas that are subdivided into multiple levels. Levels are short and generally only take a few minutes to complete. The goal often involves defeating a set of enemies and activating switches in order to gain access to the level's exit.[2] The puzzle elements in the first few levels combine to form more complex puzzles as the game progresses.[2] There is also a level editor feature to allow players to create their own puzzles and share them on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection network.[3]


Anise, a master thief, accidentally triggers a booby-trap in the palace of the Ancient Demon King.[3] She barely escapes and is knocked unconscious. A fairy named Kukri rescues her and takes her to Albyon Castle. Kukri claims that Anise is a descendant of the Legendary Hero of Albyon and thus, the king commands her to save the prince who was captured by the demons in the Demon King's palace.[3]


In December 2008, the ESRB leaked the announcement of three games which Atlus would be releasing in North America, including the announcement of Steal Princess.[4] A week after the leak Atlus jokingly said in a press release that all future release announcements would be made via the ESRB website.[5] Steal Princess was officially announced on January 15, 2009 with a release date scheduled for March 24, 2009.[3] Three of Atlus's game's releases were rescheduled in February 2009, including Steal Princess whose new release date was for April 21, 2009.[6] Atlus announced in May that they would be delaying Steal Princess by a few weeks, until May 19, to allow more time to advertise the game.[1] To appease gamers that were counting on the April 21 release, a free mini-poster was packaged with the game.[1]
