World of Winnie the Pooh Brought to Young Video Game Fans.
ELECTRONIC ENTERTAINMENT EXPO (E3) – BOOTH #4101 – Los Angeles, CA – May 11, 2000 – NewKidCo International Inc. (OTC BB: NKCIF; TSE:NKC) and Disney Interactive will preview Tigger’s Honey Hunt for PlayStation game console and the Nintendo 64 game system at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in Los Angeles from May 11 - 13, 2000.
Tigger’s Honey Hunt for PlayStation and Nintendo 64 follows NewKidCo and Disney Interactive’s successful release of Winnie the Pooh: Adventures in the 100 Acre Wood for Game Boy® Color, which, since its release in March, has consistently been in the top ten among “Portable Video Games,” according to NPD/TRST sell-through data.
“Winnie the Pooh has delighted children and families for more than three generations and now his popularity is greater than ever,” said Hank Kaplan, President of NewKidCo, LLC. “Tigger’s Honey Hunt engages children in an adventure in which they are encouraged to interact with their favorite characters and in the process, learn basic lessons.”
The Game – PlayStation and N64
Oh no! Winnie the Pooh needs more honey for his party and it’s up to kids and Tigger to save the day! Children ages four and up will delight in playing Tigger – running, jumping, and bouncing around the 100 Acre Wood in search of Pooh’s “most favorite” snack. Along the journey they’ll face many challenges: slippery icy terrain, falling boulders, creepy caves, menacing bees, pesky bats and more. Mastering three mini games earns players the “Accordion Leap” and “Tigger-tastic Bounce,” which they can use to explore new areas. This fun-filled adventure features nine action-packed levels, three mini games, bonus bounces, surprises and hidden levels for a “Tiggerific” good time. Tigger’s Honey Hunt for PlayStation and Nintendo 64 will be available August 2000.
Tigger’s Honey Hunt will be supported by national television and print advertising, major public relations initiatives, online programs and synergistic Disney promotions with Buena Vista Home Entertainment and key licensees, including Mattel.
