Original Article (Wed 15th Jan, 2020 10:30 GMT): Cyber Group Studios and Outright Games have revealed that the very first game based on the Gigantosaurus children's TV series is on the way, and it's coming to Switch.
Fittingly called Gigantosaurus: The Game, this one will have players exploring and racing across the prehistoric world seen in the show itself. It appears to blend your typical save the world-type adventuring with rally racing, and you'll be able to play as either Rocky, Tiny, Mazu, and Bill - the stars of the series.
Here's a little more on the series itself if you're unfamiliar; the show is currently airing its first season on Disney Junior worldwide and is also set to arrive on Netflix and other channels around the world throughout 2020:
Gigantosaurus is based on Jonny Duddle's bestselling book of the same name. Directed by award-winning director Olivier Lelardoux, the series takes preschoolers on exciting, comedy-filled adventures as they dare to be themselves and explore the world beyond their nests. In every episode, the curious young dinosaurs explore the mystery of "Gigantosaurus" – the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all. They embark on a quest, facing their individual fears and working together to solve a problem. As the inquisitive Mazu, playful Tiny, timid Bill, and courageous Rocky aim to learn more about Gigantosaurus, they discover they each have something to learn from him, too!
We also have a list of key features for the game itself:
- Become a Fearless Leader- Join dino buddies Rocky, Tiny, Mazu and Bill on a daring quest to help Giganto and escape extinction
- Dino Racing - Hop in your race kart for a super rally to reach the next adventure zone and find out who's the fastest dinosaur
- Play Together - You and up to 3 friends can control your favorite dino and create co-operative adventures together
The game will be launching both physically and digitally on 27th March with a recommended retail price of $39.99.
