Lol Scragg, CEO of Cohort Studios,
said, “We’re very pleased to have Buzz! Junior: Ace Racers, the latest Buzz!
Junior game released. Our previous title in the series, Buzz! Junior: Dino Den,
was very well received and generated a lot of positive feedback, from the media
and games press, as well as from consumers themselves. We learned a great deal
developing that title and used that experience to design something quite new for
SCEE in Buzz! Junior: Ace Racers. It takes the essence of racing games and the
feeling of toy cars and puts them into an interactive form which is again
proving very popular with kids and adults alike.”
