Scheduled for release this autumn exclusively for Wii and Nintendo DS, The Princess and the Frog video game features favourite moments from the film and new challenges for Tiana, the story’s main character.
Unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, The Princess and the Frog video game takes players on a journey through New Orleans with characters from the film. Reminiscent of classics like Beauty and the Beast, the feature film marks the return to the traditional Disney musical.
Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios, said: “The Princess and the Frog video game is a fun, delightful adventure containing characters and themes that will resonate with people everywhere.
“The Princess and the Frog exposes families to a rich, cultural world of music, cooking and customization set in the enchanting locations of New Orleans and The Bayou.”
The Princess and the Frog for Wii includes over 25 mini-games designed for one to four players so the whole family can join in and interact with all the main characters. Players can make the game their own with customization activities that include performing and dancing to music, cooking New Orleans style and dressing up Tiana in multiple outfits.
On Nintendo DS, players master the art of platforming as Tiana and Ray — jumping, swinging and soaring past obstacles to advance through levels and solve environmental puzzles. Game play includes collecting ingredients and recipes, cooking dishes, and performing music with one to four players. Players can also collect real recipes and save music in the game’s jukebox.
The Princess and the Frog video game for Nintendo DS also includes DGamer - the online community exclusively for Disney gamers. Players can customize unique 3-D avatar, create a persistent profile, chat with friends, share themed accessories, earn in-game honours and unlock exclusive Disney content.
The Princess and the Frog is the only video game inspired by the studio’s tentpole release where players can experience Tiana’s exciting world in an aspirational way together with family and friends.
Both games can be played in English, Spanish and French. Amaze and Griptonite Games developed The Princess and the Frog video game.
