High School Musical: Work This Out! Will be released on Nintendo DS in April. The title is described by Disney as ‘an all-new musical adventure game, featuring storylines extending beyond High School Musical 2’.
Work This Out! features all 10 songs from the movie, and allows players to listen to songs from the film on the go by using the Nintendo DS as a music player.
Gamers can play as High School Musical characters Troy, Gabriella, Sharpay, Ryan, Chad and Taylor to explore the Lava Springs Resort from High School Musical 2.
“The phenomenon of ‘High School Musical’ goes beyond simply watching the movies,” said senior VP of global marketing at Disney Interactive Studios Craig Relyea.
“The success of the video game franchise proves that fans want to immerse themselves in the world of High School Musical, whether they are singing the songs or embarking on adventures with the cast.
"This new experience once again underscores Disney’s passion to provide fans with unparalleled entertainment as they wait for High School Musical 3 to arrive, which will also usher in a new generation of video games this holiday season.”
Disney has shipped 3.8 million units of HSM-themed games worldwide.
