Tak and the Guardians of Gross Swings Across Retail Shelves for Wii and PlayStation 2

Latest Release in Tak Franchise Leaps to New Grounds With Never-Before-Seen Characters and Unique Gameplay Style

THQ Inc. today announced Tak and the Guardians of Gross has shipped to retail outlets throughout North America. Based on Nickelodeon’s television series Tak and the Power of Juju, Tak and the Guardians of Gross is now available for the PlayStation 2 and for the first time, the Wii. Tak and the Guardians of Gross is rated E10+ for everyone 10 and older and is now available at the suggested retail prices of $19.99 (PlayStation 2) and $39.99 (Wii). The game is also scheduled to be available in Europe and Australia later this month.

Following the core elements of the television show, Tak and the Guardians of Gross immerses players into the adventures of Tak as he journeys to visit a Spoiled Shrine where “stray juju magic” is coming out of a mysterious crystal. When Tak picks up the crystal, it explodes into one hundred fragments and four Giant Grosstrosities emerge: the noxious Stink Giant, the molten Cheese Giant, the drippy Slime Giant and the lumpy Landfill Giant. Players will be tasked with helping Tak to reconstruct the shattered crystal in order to trap the Grosstrosities that threaten to destroy the Pupununu Village. In addition to the new Grosstrosities, Jeera will make her video game debut as a playable character in special areas of the game.

Tak and the Guardians of Gross incorporates a brand new and one-of-a-kind parkour style movement system, which allows Tak to run freely throughout various environments. Playing as Tak, players will navigate the levels and explore the world with greater agility and fluidity, running on walls, sliding down poles and swinging on vines.

In addition to Tak and the Guardians of Gross, players can cast and create their own spells with Tak Mojo Mistake, now available for Nintendo DS at the suggested retail price of $29.99. For more information about these games and the rest of THQ’s lineup of games, please visit www.playthq.com.
