Activision Announces Space Camp for Wii and DS

March 18, 2009


Activision Publishing, Inc. has
announced the June release of Space Camp® for Wii™ and Nintendo DS™. Packed with
accessible space age mini-games and multiplayer options, it’s not rocket science
to launch an unforgettable gameplay session!

In Space Camp®, you begin as an
aspiring astronaut in training. After rocketing yourself to the moon, you must
engage in a series of futuristic, furiously fun missions in order to return home
to Earth. With the help of your own robot, you will perform activities like
scientific experimentation, controlling spacecraft and even defending the moon
from invaders.

“What could be more fun than playing
as an astronaut in a videogame?” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “This
scenario offers a new perspective on using Wii™ and DS™ controls to craft a
truly fresh, family friendly gameplay experience.”

In addition to the robust single
player mode, there are several multiplayer options available on the Wii™.
Cooperative Mode allows one player to control the main character while a second
can interact with environment. For crews of more than two, Party Mode offers the
opportunity for up to four players to take part in raucous competitive mini-game
tournaments set on both the Earth and lunar locales.

“We are excited to be partnered with
Activision on this project,” said Larry Capps, CEO of the U.S. Space & Rocket
Center®. “Thousands dream of going to space and this game gives you that chance
to virtually explore and have fun with your friends and family.”
