The sequel to last year’s Hasbro Family Game Night features five new Hasbro games – Operation, Jenga, Bop It, Pictureka and Connect 4X4, for up to four players. In addition to their original gameplay mode, each classic game has several new modes, including Jenga Chance Blocks, where players bash escaping blocks. In GameShow Party mode, players get to participate as their own Wii Mii characters, with gracious host Mr. Potato Head inviting them to spin the Challenge Wheel in front of the in-game studio audience to select their next game. Players will also have the chance to compete with family members and friends for the ultimate accolade, the Gold Potato trophy, and there are even opportunities to customise Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head with unlockable themes such as Tokyo Gamer and Wild West.

“EA is committed to bringing friends and families together around the TV for engaging, wholesome interactive entertainment,” said Chip Lange, vice president and general manager of EA’s Hasbro Division. “With Hasbro Family Game Night 2, we’ve added some great game experiences to our line-up that range from a zany GameShow mode to addicting family classics like Operation, Bop It and Pictureka. We’re sure Hasbro Family Game Night 2 will provide lasting memories and enjoyable times this holiday season.”
