Activision Publishing and Mind Candy are bringing Moshi Monsters to Nintendo DS this fall in the upcoming game Moshi Monsters: Moshling Zoo.
The joint endeavor, to be distributed globally by Activision Publishing, represents Moshi’s first move into the video game space. The Nintendo release features new locations and an exclusive new character.
“With an absolutely massive fan base, Moshi Monsters is clearly one of the fastest growing children’s entertainment brands in the world,” says David Oxford, executive vice president and general manager at Activision Publishing. “We look forward to building on Mind Candy’s success as we work closely with them to extend the brand experience.”
“We’re really excited to expand the Moshi Monsters universe into video games for the very first time," says Michael Acton Smith, Mind Candy’s chief executive officer and creator of Moshi Monsters. "The Nintendo DS is the perfect launch platform and we hope to build a lasting and successful relationship with Activision.”
Moshi Monsters website, a social online world for kids aged 6-12, launched in 2008 and currently has more than 50 million registered users in over 150 territories worldwide.
