Following the international success of the Buzz! franchise, including launch title Buzz!: The Music Quiz and Buzz!: The BIG Quiz, Sony is pleased to announce the launch of the Buzz! Junior range, an extension to the Buzz! franchise targeted at children aged six to eleven and available exclusively on PlayStation 2.
Making the most of the easy to use ‘Buzzers’, Buzz!: Junior will move away from the distinctly adult Buzz quiz host character and concentrate on simple reflex driven gameplay, strong in-game characterisation, a cheeky Buzz! sense of humour and a heavy dose of fun.
The Buzz! Junior range will launch with Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party which has been trialled with kids and parents across Europe. Results have been inspiring with boys, girls and their parents enjoying the light-hearted competition and not wanting the games sessions to end! It was hard to tell who loved the humour and cheekiness more…kids or parents?!
Choose your monkey character with care – each has a distinctly naughty personality – and then take part in one of up to 40 wild and wacky mini games deep in the jungle.
But the secret to success is not just having a laugh, as you find out if you have what it takes to demolish a Totem pole, beat out the craziest bongo beat with your Orang-utan drum instructor or base jump – clutching an anvil! And if you survive all that – not to mention being pelted with coconuts and eaten by lions - then it’s ‘farty’ time as you sit back in the jungle Jacuzzi and celebrate with your friends and the windy gorilla – just watch out for the smelly bubbles!!
Play is as simple as peeling a banana and the laughs as cheesy as a centipedes shoes. Just choose your character, select the colour of your monkey, enter your name and you are ready for tropical action.
Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party will launch around Christmas time this year.
