Aspyr And Nobilis Bringing Emma Games To US

Aspyr has partnered with Nobilis Publishing to introduce the successful Nintendo DSâ„¢ titles Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains to the United States. Bringing the French literary heroine to young girls in the US for the first time, the Emma games feature engaging and educational gameplay utilizing all of the interaction possible on DS. To guide Emma through her adventures, players must manipulate the stylus as well as the microphone to race, choose outfits, find items, call to other characters or blow debris out of the way. The stories of both games teach young girls to identify animals, discover plants and interact with and preserve nature. At the same time, players have fun racing toboggans, finding groundhogs and coordinating Emma's outfits.

The Emma titles each contain a story mode and a mini-game mode where players can play through the activities individually. Mini-games include finding Emma's lost keys, cleaning up the trash in the forest, locating groundhogs in a maze, building a snowman and learning to cook with recipes. The well-rounded gameplay makes Emma a role model for young children as well as a virtual best friend inside Nintendo DS.

In Emma at the Farm, Emma is tasked with helping her uncle Jules take care of the animals on his farm. Along the way, players must help Emma identify farm animals, learn about vegetables in the garden and become a better chef by discovering new recipes. All of the 18 mini-games in Emma at the Farm center around animals, nature, cooking and fashion.

Emma grows concerned about the groundhogs in Emma in the Mountains because they haven't come out of hibernation yet. She sets out to investigate with Andy and her dog Pickles. Players help Emma solve the mystery of the missing groundhogs through talking to other characters and completing mini-game activities with them. Games and bonus modes are unlocked once completed so that players can compete for high scores with friends at any time. Completing every mini-game at the normal difficultly level also unlocks a more challenging ‘expert' mode.

Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains will release later this fall on Nintendo DS. Each game has an SRP of $29.99 and is rated E for Everyone.
