2K Play has today announced that their latest game, "It’s My Birthday!" has succesfully been launched today, for Nintendo Wii system across Europe, Australia and New Zealand. "It’s My Birthday!" offers everything parents need to get the party started in a single box, including invitations, banners, colouring sheets and a special crown for the all-important birthday boy or girl!
The title is a set of mini games made to provide a unique and entertaining way to host a child’s birthday party, with lots of enjoying party games that can be played by up to 12 children at a time on the Wii. You’ll have your guests entertained playing some modernised classics such as Pin The Tail On The Donkey, Sack Race, Musical Chairs and 19 other traditional birthday games. The birthday boy or girl can also choose from ten party theme rooms for an unforgettable experience, from "Pirates", complete with sword and treasure chest, to "Princess", with a royal castle and magical unicorn.
“It’s My Birthday! is a fantastic alternative to expensive organised events,” says Neil Ralley, General Manager, 2K International. “Providing all the fun of a traditional birthday party, it’s a great way to entertain your child and their friends without the huge expense of hiring an entertainer or booking a venue. This £19.99 game can act as the centrepiece to any child’s birthday, offering superb value during these tough economic times. Of course, it’s not just a case of sitting children in front of a screen – thanks to the unique motion-sensing capabilities of the Wii™, children will be actively taking part in digital recreations of classic party games that are brilliantly designed and hugely entertaining".
And when the cake is entering the room, the game breaks into a complete "Happy Birthday" with on-screen lyrics, to encourage everyone at the party to give a rousing rendition. The title can be used over and over again, and will always offer the same fun for the whole family even after the candles go out. In addition, 2K Play will offer the ability to print-out additional invitations for free on their website after the originals have been used.
"It’s My Birthday!" was developed by 2K’s Cat Daddy Games studio, the creators of the highly successful Carnival: Funfair Games franchise. "It’s My Birthday!" will be available on June 19 2009 exclusively on the Wii system from Nintendo for the suggested retail price of £19.99.
