PHINEAS AND FERB DEBUT ON NDS
Disney Interactive Studios Ships First Video Game Based on Top-Rated Disney Channel Series
Phineas Flynn and stepbrother Ferb Fletcher, stars of Disney's hit television series "Phineas and Ferb," are making their video game debut. Disney Interactive Studios has released Phineas and Ferb for Nintendo DS at retail outlets.
Inspired by the top-rated animated series seen on Disney Channel and soon to debut on Disney XD, Phineas and Ferb for Nintendo DS™ invites fans to play as the characters Phineas and Ferb in a series of wacky, fun-filled adventures. As Phineas and Ferb, players can build the world’s most outrageous roller coaster from their backyard to the city; create a humungous snow ride from a snow cone machine – in the middle of summer; and hop behind the wheel of a monster truck and navigate through a muddy obstacle course. Along the way, players can use cool gadgets and objects that give them special powers. They also can complete unique mini games and puzzles such as Welding, Wind Blaster, and “You’re so busted!” mini games with Candace in order to advance through levels.
Many other popular characters from the Disney series join Phineas and Ferb throughout the game. Fans can play as “Agent P” the family pet platypus who leads a double life as a secret agent. In the game “Agent P” encounters the infamous Dr. Doofenshmirtz and battles him in a 1-on-1 challenge. Tattletale teenage sister Candace is always lurking and ready to tell Mom about the boys’ latest caper. Plus, Isabella, the Fireside Girls, Baljeet and others make appearances throughout the adventure.
The game also features DGamer, Disney’s online community designed exclusively for Disney gamers. DGamer allows players to engage with other Disney game players in a secure online community via their Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or online at www.DGamer.com. The service allows users to log into their DS and online accounts to create and customize a unique 3-D avatar and persistent profile. Kids can chat, view user profiles of their DGamer friends, and post high scores to leaderboards.
