THQ’s uDraw Tablet, which hit Nintendo Wii consoles in mid-November, is embracing the colorful world of cartoon character SpongeBob SquarePants.
THQ will launch its new SpongeBob SquigglePants game on the Wii accessory in April. The kid-friendly, art-based game allows players to tilt, flip, sketch, trace and draw more than 100 fast-paced ‘nanogames.’ Within the succession of these timed nanogames, SpongeBob SquigglePants also features rare characters and art styles from the Nickelodeon vault.
Since introducing the uDraw in November, THQ has shipped more than 1.2 million units of the tablet and accompanying stylus, which turns any TV into a virtual art display through the uDraw Studio program. The uDraw GameTablet is scheduled to launch globally this month, making SpongeBob SquigglePants available to worldwide markets at a suggested retail price of US$29.99.
Kids will also have access a 3D version of the game when it launches on the Nintendo 3DS later in the spring.
