2K Play today announced two new titles in its Carnival Games series; one of which marks its DS debut.
2K Play today announced two new titles as a part of its brand extension for its highly popular Carnival Games series. The new titles include Carnival Games for Nintendo DS, which is scheduled to ship this summer, and Carnival Games: Mini-Golf, an all-new game exclusive to the Wii, which will debut later in the year.
Carnival Games for DS brings the fun of the original to your trustry dual screen this summer. Each mini-game is designed from the ground up to take full advantage of the DS. A combination of tapping, blowing, speaking and stylus maneuvering will be required. Favorites such as Alley Ball, Frog Leap and Dunk Tank are complemented with new games including RC Raceway and Clown Hammer.
Later this year, the all-new Carnival Games: Mini-Golf comes exclusively to Wii. Featuring Carnival Bob and other characters from the orignal Carnival Games, Carnival Games: Mini-Golf brings the fun of mini-golf to the Wii, utilising the Wii Remote for the swinging of the clubs.
“The success of Carnival Games is proof that the casual game market continues to grow,” said Christoph Hartmann, President of 2K. “We are actively working to expand the 2K Play label and are committed to producing fun, quality games for the mass market, with the Carnival Games franchise paving the way.”
“The consumer response to Carnival Games has been extraordinary,” said Steve Lux, vice president of business development for 2K Play. “The game resonates with every demographic, and the feedback we have received from moms, dads, kids and grandparents shows Carnival Games as one of the drivers of family gaming. Our new games build on the strength of the first title and will promote this growing trend.”
