Dora the Explorer is boasting a new lineup of interactive games that tie into the global theme of her 10th anniversary celebration.
Gaming developer 2K Play and Nickelodeon are teaming to commemorate the 10th anniversary with the launch of Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure for Wii, Nintendo DS and PlayStation 2. In addition, Dora will introduce her first video game incorporating a pre-kindergarten through kindergarten math curriculum in Dora’s Cooking Club exclusively for Nintendo DS.
Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure, based on Dora’s 10th Anniversary special televised event, follows Dora and Boots as they try to find their way out of Storybook Land to make it to Dora’s birthday party.
Dora’s Big Birthday Adventure for Nintendo DS will be available in August, while the Wii and PlayStation 2 system titles, as well as Dora’s Cooking Club, will be available in November.
The celebration extends across the pond with Nickelodeon UK launching Dora’s Great Big World, a new application for www.nickjr.co.uk that will sit on the re-launched Dora microsite.
Dora’s Great Big World is an interactive game that encourages preschoolers to engage with Dora and her friends by following a map and customizing their worlds, adding stickers to the environment and playing games which they have to unlock.
Dora’s Great Big World will launch with one location displayed on the map, but will then offer a new location every month over a 10-month rollout.
