KONAMI SHIPS STORYBOOK WORKSHOP FOR Wii™
Entertainment Title That Enables Families to Interact With
Popular Fairy Tales and Fables From Around the World is Now Available
Konami Digital Entertainment Inc. today announced that
Storybook Workshop for the Wii™, an exciting new initiative in their
family-friendly games catalogue to reach pre-school children, is now available
in North America. Storybook Workshop immerses kids and their parents in 16
classic children’s fairy tales and fables and many other exciting features.
Through the use of the included USB microphone, you can read along, record and
play back readings of your favorite stories, including the most beloved tales
from Hans Christian Andersen, the Brothers Grimm, Aesop and around the world.
Storybook Workshop’s unique microphone functionality will even magically change
your voice to sound like the characters in the stories, including fairies,
giants and robots! Continue the fun with your children in a lively sing-along
room where nursery rhymes come to life right in front your children’s eyes, and
watch as they learn rhythm, language, numbers and shapes in the exciting Play &
Learn mode. Your kids can track their progress by using a virtual sticker pad,
which will get pre-schoolers excited and motivated to continue to read and
complete the stories.
In addition to all the wonderful reading attractions with
Storybook Workshop, kids are able to create memories and tap into their
creativity simply by using the sound of their voice and "painting" colorful
masterpieces that they are able to display on their own personal virtual easel.
With all this and more, Storybook Workshop will transform family story time into
a wonderfully memorable, fun and enriching experience with your pre-schooler.
"As a parent, I know how hard it is to find fun and engaging
activities to share with your kids," said Shinji Hirano, Executive Vice
President for Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. "With 16 bedtime story
classics, voice-changing functionality, and the ability to bring your custom Mii
avatar into the stories, Storybook Workshop provides kids with a unmatchable
reading and learning experience that the whole family can enjoy together."
