Milton Keynes – Hotel for Dogs , the video game based on the upcoming feature film, “ Hotel For Dogs” from DreamWorks Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies, will jump, sit and stay across Europe in 2009 (concurrently with the movie in each territory). Coming to the Nintendo® Wii, Nintendo DS™ and Windows-based PC, Hotel for Dogs features the likenesses and voices of the movie’s two young stars, Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin. And, of course, lots and lots of dogs.
In the Hotel for Dogs video game, players enter the old hotel to help two siblings, Andi and Bruce, feed and entertain an adorable collection of canines by building amazing gadgets, playing with the pooches and keeping the dogs happy in their new Hotel home. Navigating through 10 levels of fun and challenging game play, players must accomplish various goals to keep their beloved canines healthy and amused. Players will even explore the areas outside of hotel as they attempt to locate and rescue additional pups in need of some major TLC.
Distributed by Paramount Pictures, the live-action “ Hotel for Dogs” stars Emma Roberts, Jake T. Austin, Lisa Kudrow, Kevin Dillon and Don Cheadle in a smart, funny comedy adventure that shows how far love and imagination can take you. When their new guardians forbid 16-year old Andi (Roberts) and her younger brother, Bruce (Austin) to have a pet, Andi has to use her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog, Friday. The resourceful kids stumble upon an abandoned hotel and, using Bruce’s talents as a mechanical genius, transform it into a magical dog-paradise for Friday – and eventually for all Friday’s friends. When barking dogs make the neighbors suspicious, Andi and Bruce use every invention they have to avoid anyone discovering “who let the dogs in.”
