London, 17th November, 2017 – PAW Patrol, Spin Master Entertainment’s phenomenal preschool property and Nickelodeon’s #1 pre-school series, airing on Nick Jr. and Channel 5’ Milkshake! will be putting kids at the heart of a new adventure game on nickjr.co.uk, enabling them to create avatar versions of themselves and use the pups from the series to tackle a series of fun and engaging missions. PAW Patrol Pawsome Missions goes live on 17th November 2017 at nickjr.co.uk/Pawsome. Kids can also get fired up with a new PAW Patrol Christmas special which will air on 11th December on Nick Jr. at 5pm.
In PAW Patrol Pawsome Missions children can create an avatar of themselves as they look in the real world and get to work alongside Ryder, choosing their physical appearance and outfits. Kids then explore Adventure Bay by walking around, completing missions, meeting characters, collecting paw points and roleplaying a day in the life of the Paw Patrol. The gamers also use the Pup Pad just like Ryder in an immersive 3D digital world, collaborating with different pups for specific quests.
In the must-see Christmas special titled The Pups Winter Wonder Show, featuring everybody’s favourite paws which uphold the laws, the Adventure Bay Snow-Show is in trouble when Mayor Humdinger escapes with the feature act: Cap’n Turbot’s performing penguins. It’s up to the Paw Patrol, with the help of Tracker, to save the day so that the show can go on!
Suzie Adams, Digital Director at Nickelodeon UK & Ireland commented, “PAW Patrol Pawsome Missions is an excellent way for preschoolers to develop their problem-solving skills in an exciting and playful manner. We hope to delight kids with their transformation in the digital world through the avatar creation and how the pups transform throughout the game. This interactive game demonstrates our commitment to developing immersive experiences for our audiences in a fun and relevant way”.
PAW Patrol follows a pack of six heroic rescue pups – Chase, Marshall, Rocky, Rubble, Zuma and Skye - who are led by a tech-savvy 10-year-old boy named Ryder. Together they work hard to protect the Adventure Bay community. Each pup has a unique skill set and a house that turns into a vehicle specific to their personality. Chase is an athletic police pup, Marshall is a spirited fire truck pup, Rocky is an enthusiastic recycling pup, Rubble is a gruff, but loveable construction digger pup, Zuma is a playful, water-loving pup and Skye is a fearless, smart helicopter pup. Ryder has rescued all six pups and leads them on their missions.
