NANCY DREW CRACKS THE CASE FOR THE FIRST TIME ON THE Wii AS HER INTERACTIVE AND SEGA RELEASE ‘NANCY DREW: THE WHITE WOLF OF ICICLE CREEK’
Best-Selling Adventure Game Series Makes Leap from PC to Console
Her Interactive, the designer, developer and publisher of the best-selling Nancy Drew PC adventure game series, and SEGA of America today announced that Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is currently available for the Wii™ home video game system. This release marks the first time that the award winning series has ventured outside the PC platform and onto a major home console system, the incredibly successful Wii. By incorporating new gameplay mechanics that make the most of the Wii controls, Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek delivers a familiar yet fresh gameplay experience that can be enjoyed by the whole family in the comfort of their living room.
“We’ve been successfully developing and marketing to the core casual game player – females – for years, and it is exciting to extend our brand further into the mainstream with its first console launch,” said Megan Gaiser, President and CEO of Her Interactive Inc. “We are thrilled to partner with Sega to bring the Nancy Drew franchise to the widely adopted Wii system.”
“We are delighted to work with HER Interactive to focus on the more casual female gamer and bring such an iconic character to the Wii.” Says Sean Ratcliffe, Vice President of Marketing, SEGA of America. “The successful Nancy Drew series on PC, and now on Wii, has demonstrated an amazing ability to bring books to life and tap into some great memories for gamers of all ages.”
In Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek, players find Nancy far from home in the middle of the Canadian Rockies where she is investigating several suspicious accidents that have occurred at Chantal’s normally cozy Icicle Creek Lodge. To make matters worse, an eerie wolf’s howl in the distance is haunting the guests at night, causing Nancy to wonder if the accidents and the mysterious wolf are connected.
Assuming the role of Nancy Drew, players embark on a mystery adventure that will tax their deductive reasoning skills as they tackle intricate puzzles and master a variety of gesture-based
mini-games with the Wii Remote™. Additionally, Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek lets players choose either a Junior or Senior Detective level, making it a perfect game for players of all skill levels.
Nancy Drew: The White Wolf of Icicle Creek is currently available at retailers nationwide, and from the Her Interactive website for a suggested retail price of $29.95.
