Ubisoft announced that its IMAGINE series of videogames for girls 6-14 is now available at major retailers. IMAGINE ANIMAL DOCTOR, IMAGINE BABYZ, IMAGINE FASHION DESIGNER and IMAGINE MASTER CHEF are immediately available for the Nintendo DS for $29.99.
"The IMAGINE games are a great way for young girls not just to have fun, but to become familiar with today's hottest gaming consoles," said Helene Juguet, senior director of U.S. marketing at Ubisoft. "Ubisoft is excited about being an active participant in further driving this evolution of the gaming market and expanding the world of gaming for young girls."
IMAGINE ANIMAL DOCTOR allows girls to expand their creativity and run their own veterinary clinic. Players can explore the world of animals and medical care by taking care of a large number of animals and building the most evolved hospital.
IMAGINE BABYZ lets players become a babysitter and take care of up to six babies. Players are given the task of changing diapers, monitoring the babies' health, preparing bottles and feeding the babies, and taking the babies out for walks.
IMAGINE FASHION DESIGNER invites players to expand their creativity and puts them in charge of creating a whole new fashion line. Girls explore the glamorous world of fashion and play the role of designer for a fashion design studio in New York. Players keep their ears and eyes open for the next hot trends to create successful collections and become Manhattan's hippest designer.
IMAGINE MASTER CHEF allows players to create recipes from all over the world, using the stylus to prepare, stir and cook ingredients. Players can customize their kitchens with utensils and appliances. Fun mini-games include cooking quizzes and kitchen challenges.
Ubisoft first announced the IMAGINE series at the 2007 E3 as part of the company's strategic expansion into the casual videogame market. Through extensive lifestyle research, the IMAGINE line was created specifically for young tweens and will continue to grow as part of the company's long-term vision for casual gaming.
