Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force
introduces kids to new adventures in familiar snow-covered world

For the first time ever, kids can
now experience the fun and adventures of the snow-covered, online virtual world
of Club Penguin on Nintendo DS. The highly-anticipated Club Penguin: Elite
Penguin Force video game from Disney Interactive Studios, which hits retail
stores today, joins the new line of Club Penguin toys and books now available in

“Club Penguin has grown tremendously
and the roll-out of products for kids to extend their experience beyond the
computer has been a huge success,” said Craig Relyea, senior vice president of
global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force
takes that one step further by taking a popular storyline from the virtual world
and expanding it onto the DS.”

In Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force
for Nintendo DS, players become agents of the Elite Penguin Force, waddling
their way through secret missions, solving mysteries and connecting with the
online world of Club Penguin in new ways. Players will use both familiar and
all-new gadgets, accessories, disguises and vehicles as they set out on new
missions to investigate puzzling events in the world of Club Penguin.

Players can even earn coins while
playing on Nintendo DS and upload them wirelessly to their online penguin
accounts. In addition, each game comes packaged with a redeemable code that
allows players to gain special access to the top secret EPF Command Room, which
is only available to DS players online at

Other features of Club Penguin:
Elite Penguin Force include three all-new mini-games – Snowboarding, Dance
Challenge and Snow Trekker ─ as well as three fan-favorites from the virtual
world that have been adapted to utilize the DS touch-screen – Cart Surfer, Jet
Pack Adventure and Ice Fishing. Weekly newsletters, polls and upcoming seasonal
missions will be available for download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force
also includes access to Disney’s DGamer, which allows kids to engage with other
Disney game players using their Nintendo DS or home computer via the  web
