JAKKS Pacific and Duck Commander Team Up to Bring The ‘Duckmen’ Experience
Home as a Deluxe Plug It In & Play TV Game
MALIBU, Calif. -- June 18, 2013
Leading U.S. toymaker JAKKS Pacific, Inc., (Nasdaq: JAKK) announced today that
it signed an agreement with Duck Commander, Inc., the Louisiana-based and
family-owned company featured on the A&E hit TV series “Duck Dynasty,” to
develop, distribute and market the Duck Commander™ Deluxe Plug It In & Play TV
Game™. Duck Commander is a multi-million dollar enterprise that produces
popular duck calls and other related merchandise and was founded by the
Robertson family, the breakout stars of the “Duck Dynasty” series.
Featuring the imagery and voice talent of various members of the Robertson
family, including Phil, Uncle Si, Willie, Jase and others, the Duck Commander
Deluxe Plug It In & Play TV Game takes hunting enthusiasts through the bayous
of Louisiana in search of ducks, beavers, frogs and more. Powered by JAKKS’
easy-to-use TV Games platform, everything fans need to play is included in a
single purchase. The Duck Commander Deluxe Plug It In & Play TV Game includes
the infrared sensor bar and “pump and shoot” controller containing the game
software, which simply plugs into the A/V jacks of any standard TV. No
additional consoles or software are required. While the rating is still
pending, the game is submitted for an ESRB “T for Teen” video game rating.
“We are committed to providing an entertaining and action-filled gaming
experience on our easy-to-use plug and play platform with titles that are
on-trend and inspired by the hottest pop culture brands,” said Michael
Bernstein, Executive Vice President, Marketing, JAKKS Pacific, Inc. “Our
development team worked diligently to produce a higher level of graphics and
targeting for the Duck Commander Deluxe Plug It In & Play TV Game, offering a
more authentic experience at a great value to all gamers.”
“We can’t wait to get our hands on the Duck Commander Deluxe Plug It In & Play
TV Game and to offer our fans the opportunity to experience the Louisiana
bayou and the ‘Duckman lifestyle’ with this cool new game,” said Willie
Robertson, Co-Founder and CEO of Duck Commander, Inc.
