Electronic Arts’ push into the casual-gaming scene continued this morning with the company’s announcement that it’s working on a NERF game for the Nintendo Wii and DS, as well as a Wii, DS and PC game called Littlest Pet Shop. The games are two of several Hasbro-licensed titles EA is currently developing.
Both Littlest Pet Shop and NERF “N-Strike” will be available this fall for Nintendo Wii and DS.
EA is also working on three Hasbro-based games for mobile phones: Scrabble, Monopoly Here and Now, and Yahtzee Adventures.
In NERF “N-Strike,” the first NERF blaster action game, players find themselves in a world created to be the perfect landscape for NERF pandemonium. With both single and multi-player game modes and a new custom NERF blaster, players can take the action outside as their controller transforms to fire actual NERF darts.
Littlest Pet Shop, meanwhile, lets kids own their own digital pet shop through a game that includes all the quirkiness and cuteness of the popular Hasbro girl’s brand. Players can explore three unique environments as they unlock new pets, playsets and accessories, and even build relationships with their pets.
Much like Nintendogs, Littlest Pet Shop will also include three different versions for Nintendo DS, each with unique pets.
