Scooby-Doo and the Scooby Gang are returning to the Wii in a brand new action-adventure game, Scooby-Doo! and the Spooky Swamp. For the first time, fans can play as any of the Mystery, Inc. characters, including Scooby-Doo, at any time. In the game, Scooby-Doo, Shaggy, Daphne, Velma and Fred are attempting to uncover the mystery behind a strange swamp girl and her peculiar cauldron of brew. During the course of the adventure, players will have the chance to explore beyond the swamp and into other haunted locations such as the snow-covered Alpine Village and the Southwestern ghost town, in the hunt for more clues.
The new game employs a “drop-in, drop-out” two-player co-op system which is designed to encourage friends and families to join in the fun at any point in the game. Players can unlock cool costume pieces and collect Scooby Snacks to buy more accessories and clothing. Of course, any sleuth worth his or her salt should have the best crime-fighting resources at their disposal, so the Scooby Gang will have plenty of new gadgets and tools to help them uncover hidden clues and secret investigations. They will also have brain-teasing puzzles to solve and enemies and epic bosses to battle, just to keep them on their toes! Here’s Samantha Ryan, senior vice president, development and production, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, talking about the game:
“Scooby-Doo! and the Spooky Swamp expands the Scooby-Doo franchise with more of the mystery and exploration that video game fans have come to adore. Playing as any one of their favourite Scooby-Doo characters, kids and families can work together to find clues, use investigative tools and solve puzzles in humorous and hair-raising adventures.”Look for the game to be released for Wii in Fall 2010.
