The uDraw GameTablet is a first-of-its-kind, innovative new hardware device that provides an entirely new and entertaining way for kids and families to play on Wii. Scheduled to be available in the U.S. this holiday season, the uDraw GameTablet combines a deep and immersive level of creative freedom with a line of video games developed to expand gameplay and expression.
The device is a small white handheld tablet with a 4" x 6" drawing space and detachable, pressure-sensitive stylus designed to offer more subtle control and precision than available on the traditional Wii Remote™. The Wii Remote docks discretely within the uDraw GameTablet, allowing the device to draw power directly from the Wii Remote. A convenient storage area hides the Wii Remote wrist strap and stylus when not in use. The uDraw GameTablet also features tilt-and-roll movement options, allowing players to interact and control in-game characters by moving and directing them through game levels. Additionally, SD-card support enables players to save and print their artwork and other uDraw creations.
"The uDraw GameTablet is designed to target consumers of all ages this holiday season with a compelling price point and familiar drawing-inspired gameplay mechanic that has been enhanced for today's tech-savvy families," said THQ Chief Executive Officer Brian Farrell.
"We've designed the uDraw GameTablet to offer something for everyone: the kids can doodle, save their creations on an SD-Card and print their artwork for display on the refrigerator. Students can improve their skills through in-game tutorial lessons. And the whole family can sit down together for family game time with products like Pictionary," added Executive Vice President, THQ Kids, Family, Casual Games and Global Online Services, Martin Good.
"We are impressed with THQ's innovative design and focus on bringing a new gameplay experience to the Wii owner with their uDraw GameTablet," said Steve Singer, vice-president of Licensing for Nintendo of America. "Nintendo is committed to providing fun and unique experiences and THQ's uDraw GameTablet seems destined to continue that trend."
The uDraw GameTablet comes ready to play with the uDraw Studio game in the U.S. for a suggested retail price of $69.99. Pictionary and Dood's Big Adventure are planned to hit store shelves on the same day for a suggested retail price of $29.99 each.
