2K Play, a publishing label of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. and Nickelodeon today announced a slate of video games based on Nick Jr. programs that will arrive in stores this fall.


Dora the Explorer will debut on the Wii home video game system from Nintendo in Dora the Explorer: Dora Saves the Snow Princess; Diego returns in, Go, Diego, Go!: Great Dinosaur Rescue; and The Wonder Pets! premieres exclusively on Nintendo DS in The Wonder Pets!: Save the Animals!

“The enduring popularity of Dora, which continues to be the number one program on commercial television for kids 2-5, combined with Wii hardware sales passing the 10 million unit mark in the United States, will make for an exciting holiday season,” said Steve Lux, vice president of business development for 2K Play. “Diego remains ‘the pre-school hero’ for boys and The Wonder Pets! is hot on the heels of a successful consumer products launch and Daytime Emmy award win.”

“We are delighted to introduce our top preschool properties, Dora, Diego and The Wonder Pets! on these popular gaming platforms for families,” said Dave Williams, senior vice president and general manager, Nickelodeon Kids and Family Games Group. “By combining Nickelodeon’s kid expertise with 2K Play’s creativity, we have created games that allow preschoolers to develop their playing skills and turn up the fun.”

Each game features the voice actors from the popular Nick Jr. TV shows. The games were tested by kids and moms for age-appropriateness, fun-factor and quality, and the packaging features a “Kid-Tested” seal. For the console games, parents and siblings can collaborate with younger gamers by using the special Helper feature and a second controller.

The Wii and PlayStation 2 system titles are being developed by High Voltage and the DS titles by Black Lantern Software. For more information, please visit
