In the game, new dangers are threatening the penguin nation, and it’s going to take everyone working - and dancing - together to save them from extinction. Players use dance moves to recruit penguins with unique abilities that help advance the adventure, stun opponents and enemies, as well as manipulate the environment around them to solve co-operative puzzles.
For the ultimate experience, players can dance their Antarctic adventure in 3D. The game will be available in full 3D for the Nintendo 3DS. In the Xbox 360 and PlayStation versions, the game is made specifically for stereoscopic 3D TV sets with the ability to disable 3D functionality at any time. The Wii and Nintendo DS versions feature traditional 2D.
All of the music in the game is composed and performed by Ozomatli, the popular, Los Angeles-based band whose music is a combination of hip-hop, salsa, dancehall, cumbia, samba, funk, merengue, Jamaican ragga, and Indian raga influences. They were joined by Robert Carranza, a Grammy nominated mixer/engineer. The upbeat score, including a song with Lil’ P-Nut, an eight year-old rapper also featured in the movie, will appeal to kids and parents alike.
