New Adventure Game Based on the Multi Million-Selling The Daring Book for Girls Series will Launch this October
EDISON, N.J., June 29 – For a daring girl, rafting down the Amazon, climbing Mt. McKinley, or embarking on an exotic African Safari is all in a day’s event! Majesco Entertainment Company (Nasdaq: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced The Daring Game for Girls for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. In this adventure title based on the bestselling books published by the William Morrow imprint of HarperCollins, players can achieve their dream adventure by successfully completing an array of exciting challenges.
“The Daring Book for Girls series is the ultimate can-do, how-to ‘manual’ that celebrates the female spirit and guides adventurous girls in a range of daring and practical activities,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. “This game captures that content and is the perfect interactive complement for fans of the books and other girls interested in a game designed specifically for them.”
“The Daring Book for Girls series, including the new book, The Double Daring Book for Girls, has entertained and inspired millions of girls, and we look forward to the game furthering the reach of this well-loved property,” said Liate Stelhik, SVP and Publisher of William Morrow.
The Daring Game for Girls is an entertaining and informative adventure that lets players virtually experience activities straight from the popular book. Players can pick from one of several character models with a wide range of ethnicities and features. As they play, girls will earn gear and collectibles while having fun in spy missions, cave exploration, freeze tag, double dutch, basketball, arts and crafts, managing a corner stand, making friends, and much more. Players will also learn educational facts about famous women in history and use that knowledge to ace Pop Quizzes. Only by earning all six types of Daring Girl Badges — including Girl Lore, Life Skills and World Knowledge — can players realize an adventure to Africa, the Amazon or Mt. McKinley and become a true Daring Girl!
Developed by WXP, The Daring Game for Girls on Wii™ and Nintendo DS™ is expected to release in October 2009. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit www.majescoentertainment.com.
