Disney Channel’s Gigantosaurus is getting its own videogame following global TV roll-out

Outright Games is to develop and publish a videogame based on the popular Disney Channel animation, Gigantosaurus.

The publisher has partnered with Cyber Group Studios to develop the title that will be available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC.

Based on the bestselling book by world-renowned author Jonny Duddle, Gigantosaurus, the full-CGI comedy-action series produced by Cyber Group Studios, brings preschoolers along on the adventures of four young dinosaur friends as they explore their prehistoric world.

The series roared into life on Disney Channel US will be broadcast on Disney Junior worldwide (excluding India, China and Taiwan), as well as premiere on major broadcast networks including France Télévisions, Germany’s Super RTL, RAI (Italy), SRC (Canada), as well as on Netflix in the majority of territories worldwide.

The Gigantosaurus video game will feature the four dinosaur heroes, Rocky, Bill, Tiny and Mazu, in a new story. Geared towards kids and families, the debut game brings players directly into the world of Gigantosaurus, as they zoom through the stunning series-inspired locations and engage with the storylines.
