Babel finishes up work on Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat site

Babel Media's marketing services team has completed work on the microsite for GameCube title Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat.

The flash-based microsite features game information, screenshots, streaming mp3 audio and in-game video clips. There are also animated instructions showing gamers how to use the unique bongo drum peripheral. Both the site and its earlier teaser are localised into EFIGS, Dutch, Belgian French and Belgian Dutch.

"Our team was able to identify the key elements of fun and interactivity from the game and recreate these in the site's animation and content - creating a website that showcases the game experience as well as explaining its key features," said Stuart Dodman, Babel's head of marketing.

"Babel's experience was really valuable to transfer the look and feel of Donkey Kong: Jungle Beat through the website," added Nintendo Europe's assistant online manager, Wolfram Vogt.

"Having now worked on a number of projects with their marketing team, the creativity of their work is giving the Nintendo microsite a real edge," he said.

Babel has also recently produced downloadable assets - including screensavers, wallpapers and Winamp skins - for other Nintendo products such as Paper Mario 2: The Thousand Year Door, Mario VS. Donkey Kong and the second NES Classics collection.

The company's other clients include Microsoft, Atari, Vodafone, Sony, THQ, Motorola and Sega.
