LEIPZIG, GERMANY– August 20, 2008– Today at Games Convention, Ubisoft announced Tim Power, a new brand of video games for Nintendo DS™, part of the“Games for Everyone” range. Created for boys ages five to eight years, the first games in the Tim Power series feature three of every young boy’s dream jobs, Policeman, Fire-Fighter and Handyman.
“We are delighted to offer a complete line-up of games specifically designed for young boys,” said John Parkes, director of marketing EMEA at Ubisoft.“Thanks to this range, they will have the opportunity to incarnate the real-life heroes they would like to be when they grow up: a policeman, a fire-fighter and a handyman. The games have been designed to be very accessible with appealing rewards to suit boys’ expectations. Tim Power will nicely complement Imagine, our successful girls’ brand. The idea that each different audience expects a video-game experience tailored to their needs is at the core of Ubisoft’s Games for Everyone range.”
