Penguins of Madagascar video game announcement!

Penguins of MadagascarSuper spy teams aren’t born…they’re hatched! Worldwide video game publisher, Little Orbit, has entered into a licensing agreement with DreamWorks Animation to bring the Penguins of Madagascar exclusively to Nintendo platforms this holiday. In the game, players will be able to live the life of an elite penguin spy on the Nintendo Wii™, Nintendo Wii U™ and Nintendo 3DS™. The game will launch on November 28th.

The four web-footed operatives, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, uncover a nefarious plot by the evil octopus, Dave (Dr.Octavious Brine) to destroy the penguin world as we know it. Players will travel to top-secret locales and embark on covert missions to thwart Dave’s evil plans.

Players will be able to play as the four penguins and instantly swap between them depending on the situation encountered.  For example, Rico, a demolitions expert, loves to blow things to smithereens while Skipper can dish out his stun slap to give enemy octopi high-powered smackdowns!  Players can solve puzzles by choosing the penguin whose natural skills are best suited for the task.

“Following our success with DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 this summer, we are once again thrilled to work with them to bring Penguins of Madagascar to gamers later this year,” said Matt Scott, president of Little Orbit. “Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private stole the show in previous Madagascar films with their humor and crazy antics.”

Penguins of Madagascar is the latest entry to the wildly popular Madagascar film franchise which has grossed over $1.8 Billion dollars worldwide. The film releases in theatres:

Sweden: December 25th
Norway: December 26th
Denmark: December 18th
Finland: December 26th
