You will guide Team Penguin, King Julien, Maurice, Mort and Marlene as they take on the evil Dr. Blowhole, who is voiced by Neil Patrick Harris. Dr. Blowhole has his sights set on world domination and it's up to you to take down their foe using each of the penguin's unique abilities: Skipper's team formations, Kowalski's clever inventions, Rico's explosive tactical weaponry and Private's slippery maneuverability. The Penguins of Madagascar will also include mini-games such as Julien's Dance Party and Mort Bowling.

The Kinect will be used to allow the player to act as Team Penguin's newest recruit. You will use your body to navigate around the game's challenges and will also be able to participate in Kowalski's Trivia and a feature which allows you to submit your photos to King Julien called Julien's critique.

The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns - Again! will be released on September 13th.
