UBISOFT ANNOUNCES COSMIC FAMILY(TM) FOR THE Wii(TM)
Space Adventure for Children Promotes Early Learning
Through Stimulating and Fun Mini-Games
SAN FRANCISCO - January 16, 2007 - Today Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, announced that Cosmic Family(TM), an exciting space
adventure geared toward young children for the Wii(TM) and developed by
Ubisoft's Barcelona studio, will launch worldwide in mid-2007. By simply
pointing their Wii Remote(TM), players will embark on an interactive tour of the Cosmic Family's action-packed rocket.
"Cosmic Family is a great title for young Wii players and their families,
with simple point-and-click controls that will be easy to learn and provide
the freedom to navigate wherever players choose to go," said Tony Key, vice
president of marketing at Ubisoft. "Families will enjoy playing this game
together, as it unfolds more like an interactive adventure than a
traditional video game."
Players will have a chance to interact with the Cosmic Family, where they
will meet Mom and Dad Cosmic, Big Sister, the two small children, the aloof
dog, the lazy cat, and plenty of colorful monsters. With 15 early-learning
mini-games found throughout the five floors of the rocket-house, families
can pilot a rocket into space, discover what the stars are hiding, create
and color whimsical images, customize rooms, brush a monster's teeth, play
dress-up with various characters, nurture plants from seeds and more. This
fun, original and colorful game is designed to improve children's memory,
hand-eye coordination, creativity and imagination.
