KIDS ARE GOING TO FLIP FOR NEW FLIPS TITLES ON NINTENDO DSi
EA TO LAUNCH SIX NEW INTERACTIVE BOOK TITLES WORLDWIDE; FIRST TITLE ALREADY AVAILABLE IN EUROPEAN DSiWARE STORE
EA today announced that it will release six individual FLIPS titles between now and summer 2010 for the Nintendo DSi. This new wave of titles, exclusively available as digitally downloadable content for the Nintendo DSi, is also slated to come to North American DSiWare Store, making it the first interactive kids’ book series to become available on the popular handheld platform in North America.
The first title in the 2010 wave, FLIPS Terror in Cubicle Four, is available now in Europe and will launch March 1st in the U.S. The first title from the popular “Too Ghoul For School” collection by B. Strange, FLIPS Terror in Cubicle Four will enable children to interact with the story in a completely new way, from collecting items to unlock bonus content, to exploring pop-up character information and spooky sound effects, to using the Nintendo DSi camera to put themselves in the story.
Other titles currently in development for both markets include:
- FLIPS The Bubonic Builders
- FLIPS Silent But Deadly
- FLIPS The Enchanted Wood
- FLIPS The Magic Faraway Tree
- FLIPS The Folk of the Faraway Tree
FLIPS is an innovative book range created by EA for the Nintendo DSi to give children of all ages a fun new way to read their favorite books. FLIPS uses the DSi touch screen and stylus to enable kids to read and interact by combining the world of storytelling with quizzes and references to characters, encouraging greater concentration and incentive to finish every chapter. Within the books, links appear to give the reader a unique way of interacting with the story and enhancing the overall literary experience.
