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.”
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.
