Winx ClubTM, the hugely popular cartoon show portraying the adventures of a young fairy called Bloom and her friends, is heading for Game Boy Advance this November via Konami of Europe, with PlayStation 2 and PC CD-ROM to follow early next year.
Currently enjoying great success on TV stations all across Europe, Winx ClubTM is a delightful celebration of friendship, fantasy and magic. Each episode centres on Bloom, a 16-year-old human girl, who discovers she is a magical fairy. Bloom is whisked away to the fantasy world of Magix, an enchanted place where fairies, humans and witches live. Here, she forms the titular Winx ClubTM with four like-minded friends, and so their amazing adventures begin.
Konami of Europe's game has been developed by its European Product Development team and is based on the first series of Bloom's adventures. It has been designed to centre on the TV show's core elements of friendship and magic, with a strong storyline leading into a series of challenging sub-games, community-based activities and hundreds of collectible items and rewards. The games also perfectly capture the ethereal nature of the cartoon series, with the Game Boy Advance version featuring elements specially created for the format.
Players control Bloom as she embarks on a series of missions around Magix. The young fairy is capable of a wide range of athletic moves and flying skills, while her burgeoning magic skills also come into play. As with the TV show, Winx ClubTM also focuses on helping others, and a number of the missions will be based on helping friends and acquaintances who, in turn, will offer tips on how to solve the many puzzles in the game, or reveal how to enter previously inaccessible locations.
With its stunning visuals, sheer variety of missions and a central message of friendship and empowerment, Konami of Europe's Winx ClubTM game is the perfect complement to the popular TV show.
Winx ClubTM will be released for Game Boy Advance in November, with PlayStation 2 and PC CD-ROM to follow in 2006. For more information, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7903 5122 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
