Get ready to hear the sound of those happy feet tap, tap, tapping on Wii once again, penguin fans, as Warner Bros. Interactive has just announced at E3 that Happy Feet Two will be coming to the Wii in Fall 2011. The musical adventure gaming experience for the entire family is inspired by the whimsical Antarctic world of the upcoming animated film, Happy Feet Two, from Warner Bros. Pictures.
“In*Happy Feet Two – The Videogame, kids will not only love playing on their own, they will have even more fun playing side-by-side cooperatively with friends and family members, or compete in penguin dance showdowns and belly sliding races,” said Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “The game’s all new, controller-based dance system uses the player’s rhythm to enhance the dancing competitions, and the gameplay lets kids interact with their favourite characters from the film.”In the game, the penguin nation faces new dangers, and it will take everyone working and dancing together to save the penguins from extinction. Players use dance moves to recruit penguins with unique abilities that help advance the adventure, stun opponents, and manipulate the environment around them to solve co-operative puzzles.
All of the music in the game is composed and performed by Ozomatli, the popular LA-based band whose music is a combination of hip-hop, salsa, dancehall, cumbia, samba, funk, meringue, Jamaican raga, and Indian raga influences. The upbeat score also features a song with Lil’ P-Nut, an eight-year-old rapper also featured in the movie.
