London, ENGLAND – (Tuesday 12th February, 2008) – Hannah Montana, the Original Disney Channel Series that launched in 2006, has been viewed in more than 23 million homes across Europe. The second season of Hannah Montana launched on Disney Channels this past summer and aired on terrestrial/FTA channels in Italy, Germany, France and UK in Autumn/Winter 2007. Hannah Montana mania is gaining momentum across Europe, and Disney Interactive Studios will launch two new innovative music-based titles inspired by the popular series.
Hannah Montana: Music Jam on Nintendo DS™ and Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour on the Wii™ home video game system will launch on 25th April 2008. Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour PlayStation® 2 version will launch in Autumn 2008.
“Response to Hannah Montana is nothing short of a global sensation and bringing fans new, highly innovative experiences within these video games provides a fun and engaging way to express creativity and interact with favourite stars,” said Craig Relyea, vice president, marketing for Disney Interactive Studios. “Players can showcase their talent via these two titles, whether it’s creating music to share with friends or perfecting their dance steps to Hannah’s songs.”
Hannah Montana: Music Jam for Nintendo DS defines the meaning of musical creativity in video games as players help Miley Stewart and her alter ego, Hannah Montana, learn how to play musical instruments to compete against her rival, Savannah Star. Players enter the Music Jam Video competition and compete against Savannah Star using their Nintendo DS touch screen to master the guitar and drums. In a mix of adventure and creative modes, players control Hannah as she composes her Music Jam Video entries and learns a little something about what it means to be a true star.
Hannah Montana: Spotlight World Tour for Wii and PS2 gives fans the chance to dance alongside Hannah Montana at venues around the world, including Tokyo, Rome and Sydney, to more than 15 of her hit songs.
Players control Hannah as she moves on stage to ‘wow’ devoted fans and earn points to go shopping at world famous locations. Off stage, players can mix and match items from Hannah’s closet to create ensembles for her performances. Fans can also interact with familiar characters from the show including Lilly, Oliver and Jackson as Hannah embarks on her worldwide tour.
