TDK Mediactive, Inc. announced today that Shrek Super Party has shipped for the Xbox and the PlayStation2. The party genre title will be available at major retail outlets throughout North America, including Wal-Mart, Toys R Us and Target.
As the fun-filled title reaches store shelves, a multi-tiered marketing campaign will launch in support of the new game, highlighted by a feature segment on the TDK Times Square video board. The video piece will debut on November 14 and run continuously throughout the holiday season, concluding on December 31.

“Party games have always been must-haves for console gamers and Shrek Super Party is one of the best,” said Stefan Serwe, vice president of marketing, TDK Mediactive. “The numerous mini-games are easy to learn and a lot of fun to play. The mini-games deliver something for everyone with their many different types of gameplay and all are full of the comedy and charm of the original Shrek movie.”

Fast-paced fun and multi-player action come to the living room in Shrek Super Party, an ogre-iffic party game for the entire family. Up to four players can take part simultaneously, all competing to win the most bug juice and have their ultimate wish granted. Players can choose from their favorite characters, including Shrek, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad, Donkey, Monsieur Hood and Thelonious.

As the player(s) progress through the game, they must compete against each other or computer opponents in mini-games along the way. The 30+ mini-games include challenges ranging from outrunning the dangerous “Dragon’s Breath,” to sinking one another in the “Lilly Pad Leap,” to working in tandem to stop the “Castle Crumble,” to catapulting vegetables for points in the “Food Fling.”

Shrek Super Party features two game play modes:

  • Tournament – The full virtual board game with integrated mini-games for up to four players.
  • Free-for-All – Players can jump right in and play the mini-games only.

Worldwide sales of TDK’s Shrek interactive titles have been highly successful, exceeding 1.2 million units across four platforms to date (Xbox, Game Boy Advance, Game Boy Color and PC CD ROM).
