MAJESCO ENTERTAINMENT ANNOUNCES
‘ZOO HOSPITAL’ FOR Wii, THE FIRST Wii GAME THAT LETS PLAYERS EXPERIENCE A
The future of the zoo is in your
hands as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of
video games for the mass market, today announced Zoo Hospital for Wii™. As a
recent Veterinary College grad, you must help your Aunt Lucy heal a myriad of
exotic animals and save the once world-famous Zoo Hospital from a businessman’s
bulldozer by attracting more visitors. Developed by Torus Games, Zoo Hospital
for Wii is expected to launch this August.
Zoo Hospital is the first game of
its kind on Wii that lets players experience a veterinarian’s job. Players can
use the Wii Remote™ in surgical procedures to eliminate parasitic pests, perform
dentistry, X-ray organs and remove foreign bodies like gallstones to restore the
health of 48 ailing zoo animals, including dolphins, gorillas, macaws and
camels. Soothing and feeding each animal while following up on post surgical
patients in their enclosures is as important as precise operations, since happy,
healthy animals increase the Zoo Rating which in turn affects the number of
visitors patronizing the zoo.
Zoo Hospital allows players to
experience a 3D zoo environment and enables up to 2 friends to treat animals
together in cooperative multi-player mode. Aspiring vets can also unlock new
animals, enclosures, medical mini-games and plaques by successfully performing
procedures and raising the Zoo Rating.
Zoo Hospital for Wii is expected to
release in August.
