November 3, 2009
THQ ANNOUNCES JAMES PATTERSON’S ‘THE DANGEROUS DAYS OF DANIEL X’ SERIES IS COMING TO THE NINTENDO DSi™ AND NINTENDO DS™
Best-Selling Author’s Epic Tale Scheduled for January Release
THQ Inc. today announced its plans to bring James Patterson’s best-selling book series, The Dangerous Days of Daniel X, to the Nintendo DSi™ and Nintendo DS™ this January.
The Dangerous Days of Daniel X is the story of Daniel, a young boy who possesses the incredible power of creation that he inherited from his alien parents. But Daniel also inherited something far more sinister: a frightening Wanted List of aliens that are bent on destroying Earth. As Daniel in Daniel X: The Ultimate Power for Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DS, which is developed by Griptonite Games, players must use his extraordinary strength, speed, agility, and power to create objects out of thin air to thwart the aliens from enslaving humanity.
“Having successfully collaborated with James on his Women’s Murder Club games, we are thrilled to expand the partnership to bring to life the epic tale of Daniel with the first Daniel X game ever offered,” said Doug Clemmer, THQ’s executive vice president, Kids, Family and Casual Games. “Our first game in the Daniel X series is a perfect complement to its literary counterparts, and a great way for fans to enhance their knowledge and enjoyment of the world of Daniel X.”
“Bringing Daniel to life on the Nintendo DSi and Nintendo DS will allow fans of the book series and graphic novel to immerse themselves in a completely new storyline,” said James Patterson. “With Daniel X: Watch the Skies debuting at #1 on the New York Times Best-Sellers list for children’s books, the new adventures of Daniel on handheld will give these enthusiastic readers the chance to become their favorite action hero.”
Offering a unique mechanism by which to interact and complete a game, Daniel X allows players to create objects out of thin air and implement them to overcome obstacles, save friends and prevent the aliens on The List from taking over the world. As Daniel traverses an alien world, that skill will be vital in solving puzzles and battling enemies so that he can return home to Earth.
James Patterson’s Daniel X: The Ultimate Power is scheduled to be available for the Nintendo DSi and DS for a suggested price of $29.99 this upcoming January.
