'The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns - Again!' (ALL) Announced - Screens

The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns - Again! has fans playing through three original episodes and interacting with their favorite characters from DreamWorks' The Penguins of Madagascar, including Team Penguin, King Julien, Maurice, Mort and Marlene.

Players can count on hearing all the original voice cast from the Nickelodeon television series, including Danny Jacobs, who won an Emmy for his role as King Julien, and Neil Patrick Harris as sinister Dr. Blowhole, a menacing dolphin with his sights set on world domination.

Utilizing each penguin’s individual abilities, players must thwart Dr. Blowhole’s diabolical plan by overcoming obstacles, rescuing friends and conquering unique and hilarious mini-games like “Julien’s Dance Party” and “Mort Bowling.”

Success in this super-stealth operation relies heavily on each penguin’s capabilities: Skipper’s team formations, Kowalski’s clever inventions, Rico’s explosive tactical weaponry and, of course, Private’s slippery maneuverability.

On Kinect for Xbox 360, fans will join Team Penguin as the newest recruit – using their bodies as controllers to react quickly and nimbly navigate hazards and obstacles. Only with Kinect™ can players engage in Kowalski’s Trivia and Julien’s Critique – a feature that enables new recruits to submit their own gameplay snapshots to the fabulous dancing Lemur himself, King Julien.

With the uDraw GameTablet for Wii, players use their stylus to experience a number of new features unique to the platform. Search hidden areas for useful bonuses, erase obstacles to uncover special items, and unlock more than 70 printable coloring book pages that feature everyone’s favorite characters from The Penguins of Madagascar.

On PlayStation 3, players lead Team Penguin through complex levels and operations, meet the colorful cast in brilliant high definition, and enjoy hours of replay value with tons of hidden collectables and wacky mini-games.

For on-the-go gamers, the handheld Nintendo DS version also offers several new features. Players will immediately find each penguin empowered with three brand-new abilities they must employ to defeat Dr. Blowhole and his clawed minions as they race against the clock to complete spectacularly treacherous levels.

The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr. Blowhole Returns – Again! is scheduled for release on the uDraw GameTablet for Wii and Nintendo DS (MSRP $29.99), PlayStation 3 (MSRP $39.99), and Kinect for Xbox 360 (MSRP $49.99).
