Animation’s Madagascar Kartz Video Game Coming October 27 from Activision

Take a Drive on the Wild Side

Activision Publishing, Inc. today
announced that DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc.’s Madagascar Kartz video game will
be released on October 27 for Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3. The
video game combines the wild world of DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar
franchise with over-the-top kart racing, resulting in an outrageous ride the
whole family can enjoy together. The Wii version can be purchased as a bundle,
which features a DreamWorks’ Madagascar Kartz steering wheel packaged with the
game – just load the Wii Remote into the steering wheel and get your animal
instincts in high gear.

Jump behind the wheel and drive
yourself wild as you play as Alex, Marty, Gloria, Melman, King Julien or those
crafty penguins! You can power-up and perform zany jumps, outlandish flips, and
radical rolls on amazing tracks from the world of Madagascar, including the New
York City Zoo, the plane crash site, the volcano, plus many more. Keep an edge
on your wild competitors with cool pickups, such as power boosts, obstacles, and
projectiles. DreamWorks’ Madagascar Kartz features split-screen head-to-head
multiplayer action, allowing up to four players to go bananas and race locally
against one another in Championship, Quick Race and Time Trial modes.

“The Madagascar films are packed
with personality and can be enjoyed by everyone,” said David Oxford, Activision
Publishing. “We designed DreamWorks’ Madagascar Kartz with the same idea. With
the whole family competing against each other as their favorite zoosters, you
have never seen action this wild!”
