Warner Bros has announced that they are developing Happy Feet Two: The Videogame
for release alongside their upcoming film.
The penguin nation is being threatened by new dangers, and they must work (and dance) together to save their community from extinction. Players will use dance moves to recruit penguins with unique abilities. These penguins can stun opponents and enemies, as well as "manipulate the environment around them to solve co-operative puzzles".
The soundtrack has been composed and performed by Los-Angeles based Ozomatli, a band whose influences cover a wide range of music genres, including hip-hop, salsa, dancehall, cumbia, samba, funk, merengue, Jamaican ragga, and Indian raga. The score also includes a song by eight year-old rapper Lil’ P-Nut, who is making an appearance in the film.
This game is being firmly aimed at children, as Warner Bros Senior Vice President of Production and Development Samantha Ryan states:
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. 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.Edit:
