2K Play, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, has partnered up with Nickelodeon to release Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue for the Wii and PlayStation 2.
The game launches on February 12 and represents the first Wii game engineered specifically for preschoolers based on a Nick property.
To celebrate the launch, 2K Play, Nickelodeon and Nintendo World are hosting a special sneek preview for families in the New York area this Saturday at the Nintendo World Store at Rockerfeller Center from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m.
The Diego game allows preschoolers to physically control the main character in ways that take advantage of its groundbreaking controller system. For example, gamers can literally stomp to try and scare away lions, jump away from jaguars, paint stripes on zebras, climb up ladders and swim across a jungle lake flailing their arms with a tight grip on the controller.
Go, Diego, Go!: Safari Rescue was developed by High Voltage and will be available for the Wii for US$39.99 and the PlayStation 2 game rings in at US$29.99.
