MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES 'ZOO HOSPITAL' FOR Wii, THE FIRST Wii GAME THAT LETS PLAYERS EXPERIENCE A VETERINARIAN'S JOB
The future of the zoo is in your hands as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Zoo Hospital for Wii™. As a recent Veterinary College grad, you must help your Aunt Lucy heal a myriad of exotic animals and save the once world-famous Zoo Hospital from a businessman's bulldozer by attracting more visitors. Developed by Torus Games, Zoo Hospital for Wii is expected to launch this August.
Zoo Hospital is the first game of its kind on Wii that lets players experience a veterinarian's job. Players can use the Wii Remote™ in surgical procedures to eliminate parasitic pests, perform dentistry, X-ray organs and remove foreign bodies like gallstones to restore the health of 48 ailing zoo animals, including dolphins, gorillas, macaws and camels. Soothing and feeding each animal while following up on post surgical patients in their enclosures is as important as precise operations, since happy, healthy animals increase the Zoo Rating which in turn affects the number of visitors patronizing the zoo.
Zoo Hospital allows players to experience a 3D zoo environment and enables up to 2 friends to treat animals together in cooperative multi-player mode. Aspiring vets can also unlock new animals, enclosures, medical mini-games and plaques by successfully performing procedures and raising the Zoo Rating.
Zoo Hospital for Wii is expected to release in August.
