Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force is a handheld spin-off to Disney's wildly successful Club Penguin online service. The game will allow players to take on the role of an elite penguin in the titular Elite Penguin Force, where they will investigate mysterious happenings in the Club Penguin World. The game is not an MMO like its counterpart, but rather a linear single-player game with limited connectivity with player's online Club Penguin profiles.
In Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force for Nintendo DS, players become agents of the Elite Penguin Force, waddling their way through secret missions, solving mysteries and connecting with the online world of Club Penguin in new ways. Players will use both familiar and all-new gadgets, accessories, disguises and vehicles as they set out on new missions to investigate puzzling events in the world of Club Penguin.
Players can even earn coins while playing on Nintendo DS and upload them wirelessly to their online penguin accounts. In addition, each game comes packaged with a redeemable code that allows players to gain special access to the top secret EPF Command Room, which is only available to DS players online at www.ClubPenguin.com.
Other features of Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force include three all-new mini-games – Snowboarding, Dance Challenge and Snow Trekker ─ as well as three fan-favorites from the virtual world that have been adapted to utilize the DS touch-screen – Cart Surfer, Jet Pack Adventure and Ice Fishing. Weekly newsletters, polls and upcoming seasonal missions will be available for download via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
Club Penguin: Elite Penguin Force also includes access to Disney’s DGamer, which allows kids to engage with other Disney game players using their Nintendo DS or home computer via the www.DGamer.com web site.
