Nickelodeon Unveils Two New Apps
Nickelodeon recently unveiled two new mobile apps for the international audience, namely Dora’s Worldwide Adventure and Nick Football Champions. The former is an educational geography app based on the mega popular preschool series, while the latter is a pop culture-centric celebration of the football season that leverages Nickelodeon’s beloved characters. Both apps are available in 12 different languages and ready to download in markets outside of the US via the iTunes, Amazon, and Google Play repositories.
Dora’s Worldwide Adventure features Dora, Boots, Swiper and more as preschoolers are encouraged to learn and celebrate different cultures. Players can explore seven different countries via the app: Australia, Brazil, China, Italy, Japan, the UK and the US. No doubt that the game will be as educational as the shows that make up the Dora the Explorer franchise juggernaut.
Nick Football Champions, on the other hand, lets kids score goals as one of their favorite Nickelodeon characters (SpongeBob SquarePants, Loud House family, Teenage Mutant Turtles) in a hyper-kinetic and wacky football game. The game uses voxel graphics that will be familiar to Roblox and Minecraft players.
“Both of these new games tap into what’s important to our audience. Our research shows 89% of kids ages 6-8 are curious about the world,” says Kate Sils, Nick Intl.’s VP of multiplatform and brand engagement. “Similarly, we know that the majority of parents with children ages 6-11 report doing everything with their kids1 and that football is the most watched sport of parents with children in this demo. So we’re excited to connect our iconic characters with such a globally beloved sport in Football Champions – the ultimate Nick style football tournament.”
Dora’s Worldwide Adventure is available for download for $3.99 USD. Nick Football Champions is available for free download.
