Aspyr Media Ships Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains for Nintendo DS to retail outlets


AUSTIN, TX. – Aspyr and Nobilis Publishing announced today that Nintendo DS™ titles Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains have shipped to retail stores in the United States. The two games introduce Emma, a beloved French literary heroine, to young girls in the United States for the first time. Both Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains utilize all of the interaction options built into DS to create an engaging and educational gaming experience.

Players must perfect their stylus skills and master the microphone to guide Emma in her adventures. Both controls will be used to race, choose outfits, find items, call to other characters or blow debris out of Emma’s way. The Emma stories teach young girls to identify animals, discover plants and interact with and preserve nature, but the learning is mixed with toboggan racing, searching for groundhogs and picking out Emma’s clothes.

Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains contain both a story mode and a mini-game mode where players can replay activities they enjoyed outside of the story of the game. In the mini-games, players will find Emma’s lost keys, clean up the trash in the forest, locate groundhogs in a maze, build a snowman and learn to cook with recipes. Emma’s stories make her a role model for young children as well as a virtual best friend inside Nintendo DS.

In Emma at the Farm, Emma is tasked with helping her uncle Jules take care of the animals on his farm. Along the way, players must help Emma identify farm animals, learn about vegetables in the garden and become a better chef by discovering new recipes. All of the 18 mini-games in Emma at the Farm center around animals, nature, cooking and fashion.

Emma grows concerned about the missing groundhogs in Emma in the Mountains, and she sets out to investigate with Andy and her dog Pickles. Players help Emma solve the mystery of the missing groundhogs by talking to other characters and completing mini-games with them. Bonus modes are unlocked as games are completed so that players can compete with friends for the highest score at any time. Completing all the mini-games at the normal difficultly level unlocks a more challenging ‘expert’ mode.

Emma at the Farm and Emma in the Mountains are available for the SRP of $29.99 and are rated E for Everyone by the ESRB.
