MUMBAI: Disney Interactive Studios announced the upcoming release of Disney Stitch Jam, a rhythm-based music and adventure game being developed exclusively for Nintendo DS. Scheduled for release March 2010 in North America, the DS game will introduce players to the latest adventures set in the popular world of Stitch, a classic character from the Walt Disney Pictures’ 2002 film Lilo & Stitch.
Players will remember Stitch as the character that was born out of a genetic experiment and exiled to Hawaii in the film. The DS game takes place in exciting locations, from tropical beaches to outer space, and introduces a new storyline involving Stitch’s kidnapped girlfriend, Angel, by his evil nemesis Dr. Hamsterviel. Stitch must embark on music-based missions and defeat Dr. Hamsterviel in an epic galactic showdown.
“Disney Stitch Jam will deliver a brand new set of adventures for a beloved Disney character who has been a fan favorite for years. Filled with catchy music, dynamic characters and fun environments, this new DS game will offer great content for kids with a high replay value,” said Disney Interactive Studios senior vice president of global marketing Craig Relyea.
Disney Stitch Jam features intuitive side-scrolling gameplay that is appropriate for young gamers who want to immerse themselves in the lovable character’s world as he sets off on his many adventures. Kids have the option of stylus or button controls as they catch, shoot and collect musical notes to release melodies and clear 10 missions to save Angel. Disney Stitch Jam is equipped with two-player co-operative play via download, where players can share the game with friends – a second game cartridge is not needed.
The game also includes a customization feature that allows fans to personalize Stitch with special costumes and accessories that can be unlocked in the game.
Developed by Cattle Call, Disney Stitch Jam is slated for release March 2010 and rated E by the Entertainment Software Rating Board (ESRB).
