Here Come the Smurfs

In another announcement by Ubisoft regarding a game that will make you question what is actually going on with that company these days, if turns out The Smurfs are coming to the Nintendo 3DS later this month (though it released yesterday in Europe). The game will be an exclusive adventure that will use the 3DS’s unique abilities and features.
Yes, Ubisoft. This is definitely the Nintendo exclusive everyone wanted from you.

Sarcasm aside, anyone reading this who happens to be a Smurf fan, we apologize. The game will make use of things like the gyro sensor, microphone, and touchscreen for various mini-games. But don’t take our word for it, here’s the awaited press release:

“Developed by Magic Pockets, The Smurfs for Nintendo 3DS will take players to the colourful comic book world of their favourite characters. In this great new adventure, players will need to help the Smurfs rebuild their village while finding out what could have possibly caused its destruction. To complete their quest, they will have to play through a variety of 12 mini-games, collecting resources and avoiding Gargamel’s traps.

In this brand new Smurfs game, players will be able to build the greatest village for Papa Smurf, Smurfette and all their friends. Through multiple environments, from Gargamel’s lab to the deep forest surrounding the village, players will collect wood, rocks and bricks to help them in their quest. Customisation will be possible for both the Smurf houses as well as the whole village by sawing logs, nailing planks and stacking bricks.

All the mini-games are tailored for Nintendo 3DS, taking full advantage of its features: players will play hide and seek with the Nintendo 3DS stylus, pilot a plane through the woodlands, organise music contests or create their very own recipes by tilting the Nintendo 3DS to mix ingredients and blow in the microphone to cool their preparations.”

It won’t be long now before you can enjoy this exciting adventure. Please, try to contain yourself.

Faith likes games and books and cake and writing and Lara Croft, not necessarily in that order. She also thinks a Skylanders cartoon show is a really, REALLY good idea...
