DISNEY INTERACTIVE STUDIOS ANNOUNCES DISNEY FAIRIES: TINKER BELL AND THE LOST TREASURE FOR NDS
The new title in the Disney Fairies video game series will launch this October, coinciding with the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of the all-new movie
Disney Interactive Studios today announced Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure for Nintendo DS™. The game will launch in North America the same day as the all-new Blu-ray and DVD release from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment and connects with the Disney Fairies Pixie Hollow virtual world from Disney Online in new ways. Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure follows last year’s successful debut of the Disney Fairies franchise on Nintendo DS.
"Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure allows fans to once again play as one of the most enduring characters in Disney history, in the beautiful world of Pixie Hollow,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “Fans can play through memorable scenes from the film, let their imaginations run wild when creating and customizing their very own Fairies and experience new levels of integration with the Pixie Hollow virtual world."
Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure expands on the forthcoming movie in which the Disney Fairies prepare for the Autumn Revelry, where Tinker Bell has been selected to create the prestigious Fall Scepter that can rejuvenate the Pixie Dust tree. When good friend Terence offers to help, Tinker Bell’s stubbornness and temper get the best of her, causing her to shatter her creation - the scepter’s fragile moonstone and her friendship with Terence. To make things right, Tinker Bell must now embark on a perilous quest to north of Never Land and find the Mirror of Incanta, which will grant her one wish.
In the game, players have a choice of roles. They can create and customize up to five of their very own Fairies, and help prepare for the Autumn Revelry by participating in a series of mini-games, quests and puzzles. Players can collect a variety of items, such as snowflakes, sunflower seeds and spider silk, to create clothing, accessories and items to decorate their home. Fans can also engage in exciting movie-based game play as Tinker Bell to find the lost treasure north of Never Land.
Similar to last year’s release of Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell, the player experience expands beyond the DS game into the online world of Pixie Hollow. For the first time, players can upload an original customized Fairy avatar from the DS to the virtual world, where more than 16 million Fairies have been created to date. Once a Fairy has been uploaded from their DS game, players will gain access to an exclusive online quest, and when completed will unlock a special item both in the online world of Pixie Hollow and in the DS game.
Players can also transfer various gatherables collected in the DS game to PixieHollow.com, which can then be integrated into pre-existing online inventories. The link between the two platforms is further strengthened with the ability for fans to receive up-to-date news and polls from the online world on their DS. The synergy between the two platforms translates into a unique experience only Disney can provide to fans around the world.
Also included in Disney Fairies: Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure is DGamer, the online community exclusive to Disney gamers on Nintendo DS, allowing players to connect with others and unlock additional items in their DS game.
Developed by Hyde, Disney Fairies:Tinker Bell and the Lost Treasure will be available this fall for Nintendo DS.
