Dora the Explorer and The Fresh Beat Band. Additionally, the Bubble Guppies
make a splash in an underwater world of laughter and learning in their
hand-held video game debut on Nintendo DS™. Rounding out the lineup is a
surprise storyline exclusive to the Nintendo DS – Team Umizoomi & Dora’s

“We were gratified to discover that children, older siblings, parents,
grandparents and school teachers all embraced the ‘get-up-and-move’ fun of
Nickelodeon Dance. With Nickelodeon Dance 2, we expand that magic with new
characters, songs and twists,” said Steve Lux, Vice President of Business
Development for 2K Play. “On the portable front, games based on preschoolers’
favorite new Nickelodeon properties, including Bubble Guppies and Team
Umizoomi, provide the perfect opportunity to play learning games on the go.”

“Nickelodeon is so excited to release another round of award-winning,
breakthrough preschool games with 2K Play,” said Sherice Torres, Senior Vice
President of Home Entertainment, DTO and Videogame Licensing, Nickelodeon
Consumer Products. “There’s no better way to celebrate the holidays than with
Nickelodeon video games.”

In Nickelodeon Dance 2 the dance party’s back and bigger than ever. Gamers of
all ages can dance, sing and workout with their newest Nickelodeon friends to
all-new tracks like The Fresh Beat Band’s “Just Like a Rockstar.” Moreover,
the new ‘freeze dance’ mode will keep kids on their toes with a twist on the
classic game ‘musical statues’. Nickelodeon Dance 2 was named “Best Kids Game”
by Family Friendly Gaming at E3, and was recently featured in The Active
Gaming Showcase – the joint initiative between the President’s Council on
Fitness, Sports & Nutrition and the Entertainment Software Association – to
promote active play through video games.

Bubble Guppies for Nintendo DS is based on Nickelodeon’s top-rated CG-animated
preschool series. It’s the first portable video game to star the fish-tailed
classmates Molly, Gil, Deema, Nonny, Oona and Goby, and takes players on a
journey from the farm to the city.

In Team Umizoomi & Dora’s Fantastic Flight for Nintendo DS, Dora the Explorer
joins the mighty math heroes of Team Umizoomi in their first adventure
together. Gamers will practice math and problem-solving skills as they assist
Millie, Geo, Bot, Dora and Boots in building and flying a colorful air ship.

Nickelodeon Dance 2 for Wii and Kinect for Xbox 360 are rated E for Everyone
by the ESRB. Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi & Dora’s Fantastic Flight for
Nintendo DS are rated EC for Early Childhood. The console titles were
