Bandai Namco has revealed the Madagascar Penguins will be stirring up trouble on the Nintendo Wii, Wii U and 3DS this holiday season. Published by Little Orbit and in conjunction with DreamWorks Animation – who brought the successful How To Train Your Dragon 2 game earlier this year – comes a new adventure with the Penguins of Madagascar Videogame exclusively for Nintendo platforms.
In Penguins of Madagascar, players will follow in the footsteps of an elite penguin spy and are able to switch between the four penguins – Skipper, Kowalski, Private and Rico – at any given time. The game will coincide with the film’s release on December 5 and will launch November 28 for Europe and Australasia, with Bandai Namco handling the distribution. Check out the press release below for more information.
The four web-footed operatives, Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private, uncover a nefarious plot by the evil octopus, Dave (Dr.Octavious Brine) to destroy the penguin world as we know it. Players will travel to top-secret locales and embark on covert missions to thwart Dave’s evil plans.
Players will be able to play as the four penguins and instantly swap between them depending on the situation encountered. For example, Rico, a demolitions expert, loves to blow things to smithereens while Skipper can dish out his stun slap to give enemy octopi high-powered smackdowns! Players can solve puzzles by choosing the penguin whose natural skills are best suited for the task.
“Following our success with DreamWorks’ How to Train Your Dragon 2 this summer, we are once again thrilled to work with them to bring Penguins of Madagascar to gamers later this year,” said Matt Scott, president of Little Orbit. “Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private stole the show in previous Madagascar films with their humor and crazy antics.”
fuck this shit
Baby penguins of Madagascar announced for wiik u, wiik, nintendrops 3ds
Lol why Wii?
Said can be said for FIFA 14/15 on Wii instead of Wii U. Doesn’t make any sense either but then again, WTF cares?
I thought the same when Just dance 2014 was announced for Wii. I guess SOMEBODY’s gotta use the 800 million Wii’s that exist in peoples homes.. -_-;;
Because most nintendo fans these days are Faggots staying with their Wii until the real fans put enough money into the Wii u to make it a success
Our empire is finally getting a gigantic support!
Said the civilians and misguided cattle…
I LOVE Penguins Of Madagascar! I’m stoked they actually made a game for it! Bandai Namco, take my cash! :D This is awesome
what the hell is australasia! .. did he mean australia?
Austalasia is otherwise known as Oceania – so Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea. :)
Australasia is the name of the continent. Australia is just the country…
No, Australasia is comprised of areas between Australia and Asia
New Zealand, Australia and a few other islands make up it.
But really? Are these penguins or even the movie Madagascar still relevant?
More relevant than the Vita anyway…
No seriously, I get it if their was like a Madagascar 4 in the works or a TV series came out, but do people even care anymore?
It might not be as popular as before but it’s still more popular than the Vita…
The Vita’s an AMAZING console. Remote Play on it was a great idea from Sony. I can’t count how many times I felt so much convenience when playing games like Killzone on my bed. But that’s really the only selling point it has now. That, a ton of downloadable games, and Freedom Wars. If Sony had realized sooner and understood the handheld market, advertised the console better, etc, Vita could actually compete against 3DS. Now? I doubt it stands the tiniest chance. Sony doesn’t understand what makes the handheld market tick. They made the perfect dish, but somehow forgot to add all the vital ingredients.
Although it is a great idea (copied once again), still irrelevant as it was supposed to be its own thing from the beginning…
I remember playing Madagascar on the ps2.
Of course you did, because after you completed the game, you went to a zoo and ate a few innocent pinguins you awful creature…
Why is this in my news feed? Who the fuck actually cares?
kinda interested xD
See, Bandai Namco is still a avid supporter of Nintendo’s consoles !!!
its basically being released for the new movie,will it be a gem or another movie tie in turd.
Those Penguins are hilarious, if they bother to dub it with our local voice actors, I might buy it.
i love the penguins, but a game…?
i love the rabbids in rayman, but the cut scence not the game :-)
why dreamworks, why doing this animation instead of a brand new one? =(
loved penguins of madagascar show on nickeloden. i how this game is decent and doesn’t have poor graphics like most wii-wii u ports. people should start accepting games and stop calling them sloveware. since am causal core i will never understand hardcore or core gamers brush off games like this? no wounder its mostly same crap everytime with most titles.
you gotta be kidding nintendo really needs to work on quality control
The name & the characters we play as makes this sound like a great game for me to buy. The real question: is the gameplay great? A video of some gameplay in the article would have been nice. I HATE reading about Gameplay. I’d much rather SEE it.
I hate retarded games like this for the Wii U
