Happy Feet is one of the cutest animated kids films to hit cinema screens in recent years. It also performed commercially well, too, generating hundreds of millions of pounds in Box Office and DVD sales.
The movie followed the story of Mumble, a vocally-challenged penguin who had the ability to tap-dance and communicate with humans. The sequel, Happy Feet Two, arrives in cinemas on December 2nd. Its story revolves around Mumble’s son Erik who has to unite the different penguin nations.In the Happy Feet Two musical adventure game, players have to make the in-game penguins dance to recruit new friends, stun enemies and manipulate the environment to solve co-op puzzles.
Gamers must tap their controllers in time to the music, in order to compete in penguin dance-offs and even belly sliding races. All the favourite film characters are in the game including Mumble and Ramon. In the handheld versions gamers can also control the penguin chicks Bo, Atticus and Eric, with the Xbox 360 and PS3 discs boasting stereoscopic 3D support.
Warner Bros is supporting the title with a joint game and movie press campaign targeting children, as well as a host of other promotions. The publisher has organised parenting blogger events and a special game pack offer with SeaLife.
