Another day, another batch of games shipped to stores. Instead of giving them all their own posts, we grouped them, and so far there are announcements for:

Strawberry Shortcake Dance Dance Revolution (TV)

A new Plug'N'Play product that connects directly into a TV without a separate console, Strawberry Shortcake Dance Dance Revolution combines the high-energy dance gameplay of Konami's hit Dance Dance Revolution (DDR) video game franchise with Strawberry Shortcake characters and music. Shipping after the recently released Strawberry Shortcake The Sweet Dreams Movie, the new DDR product leverages the current popularity and high awareness of the Strawberry Shortcake property.

"With so many games vying for kids' attention, it's gratifying to introduce one that literally gets them off the couch," said Ken Gold, vice president of Marketing, Majesco Entertainment. "Given the recent release of the feature length film, Strawberry Shortcake Dance Dance Revolution is available at a time when awareness and interest in the Strawberry Shortcake property will be at its peak."

As a Plug'N'Play product, Strawberry Shortcake Dance Dance Revolution plugs directly into a television set without a game console, delivering a fun, interactive experience on a custom Strawberry Shortcake dance pad. Featured characters include Strawberry Shortcake, Blueberry Muffin, Raspberry Torte, Lemon Meringue and Rainbow Sherbet dancing along with themed music such as "Straw-Buh-Buh-Buh-Buh-Berry Shortcake" and nine other songs. The game features multiple difficulty settings that make it easy for players of all ages to enjoy, and as an added bonus, strawberry-scented stickers are included free inside the box.

Dance Dance Revolution is the only video game in which players move their body to upbeat tunes while allowing them to exhibit their own innovative flair and original dance moves. DDR combines quick, reflex action with energetic dance music for intense "get-up-and-play" fun. Players are challenged to match their dance steps with the flashing arrows on the screen while keeping up with the music's beat. Since its home video game console debut in 2001, the DDR franchise has sold more than four million units in North America.

Developed and manufactured by Majesco, Strawberry Shortcake Dance Dance Revolution will be sold and distributed by Konami for a suggested retail price of $29.99.
