The Buzz!™ Junior franchise is on a mission to take children back in time this February with the launch of Buzz!™ Junior: Dino Den, exclusive to PlayStation®2. This new title follows hot on the heels of November’s Buzz!™ Junior: Monster Rumble and includes brand new games, four cheeky Dino characters and a whole host of exciting features– all set in a prehistoric Dino world.

Buzz! Junior: Dino Den is the fourth title in the critically-acclaimed Buzz! Junior series. The game play is ideal for children, challenging them to improve their co-ordination and hone their reflexes by using the coloured buttons on the famous Buzz! buzzers in a series of lightning-fast games of skill, speed and logic. It’s a perfect dose of fun for the whole family this Easter.

Set in the prehistoric time of the dinosaurs, players find themselves in a land of volcanoes, geysers and festering mud pools - ideal for a refreshing dino bath! There are a mammoth 35 multiplayer games for the four cheeky playable Dinos to get their claws into including stone age go-kart racing, T-Rex riding, and caveman dunking. Players compete for Dino eggs - the Dino with the biggest egg collection at the end is crowned king of the Dinos.

Buzz! Junior: Dino Den features lots of exciting ways to play, including the brand new Team mode where players can join forces to compete in 10 unique 2vs2 team games. Players can also compete in every-Dino-for-themselves action as the Dinos work their way over treacherous lava rivers, frozen lakes and muddy pools.

Suitable for up to four people, Buzz! Junior: Dino Den lets kids compete against each other or, if there isn’t a full herd of Dinos to play with, use the computer controlled‘Tribal Dino’ to take control– meaning that Dino friends are always on hand!

Key features:-

• 1-4 player buzzer-bashing fun

• 2 or 4 player co-operative mayhem in the all new 2vs2 Team mode

• 25 great new multiplayer mini games

• 10 all new 2vs2 Team games (so that’s a whopping 35 games in total!)

• Computer controlled‘Tribal Dino’ enhances gameplay when playing with less than 4 human players

• Four great characters to choose from: T-Rex, Pterodactyl, Stegosaurus and Triceratops

• Even more Buzz! Junior humour with a twist of fun-filled mischievousness

This hilarious new title is firmly focused on delivering the fun and side-splitting humour that guarantees entertainment for the whole family as they come together over the course of a series of colourful and wacky Dino challenges.

If you loved Buzz!™ Junior’s Jungle Party, RoboJam and Monster Rumble, then you’re in for a seriously mammoth treat when Buzz!™ Junior: Dino Den hits shelves this February– just in time for Easter. Visit www.buzzjunior.com for more fun and games.
