Bob Barker may have retired from The Price is Right TV show, but he’s making a triumphant return this September to appear in The Price is Right videogame, which Ubisoft today announced for the Wii, DS, PC and Mac.
Like the contestants on the game show, players of The Price is Right videogame will be able to bid on products, play the famous pricing games and spin the Big Wheel for the chance to win prizes in the Showcase Showdown.
The Price is Right video game will feature a single-player mode as well as a multiplayer mode for up to four players. Many of the classic pricing challenges such as Plinko, Three Strikes, Hole in One and Cliffhanger will be in the game. The Wii version will have specialized controls that allow players to spin the Big Wheel, putt through “Hole In One” or take a swing at “Punch-A-Bunch.”
The voice of announcer Rich Fields, actual sounds and music from the show and classic video footage will ensure an “authentic” experience. Here’s hoping we get to see Bob Barker’s reminder at the end of every videogame “program” to spay and neuter your pets.
