Tsumanga and Rainbow to Launch New Winx Club Mobile Game
Just in time for Christmas, Tsumanga Studios and Italy’s Rainbow Studios will be releasing a brand new game for Apple and Android devices based on their hugely popular brand, Winx Club. Titled ‘Winx Fairy School,’ the game serves as a follow-up to Tsumanga Studio’s Winx Sirenix Power, which was released last May 2013 and has already garnered over 1.3 million downloads.
In Winx Fairy School, fans of the franchise will be able to create their own fairies-in-training and join the Winx at Alfea College for Fairies, where they will decorate their dorm rooms, choose from hundreds of fabulous fashion combinations, and explore Alfea castle while studying new spells and completing various quests until they become worthy of experiencing the fairy transformation.
“The popularity of Winx Club all around the world is simply phenomenal,” said Graeme Harvey, the CEO of Tsumanga Studios, the developer and publisher of Winx Fairy School. “It has a great audience who really engage with the brand and who really enjoy getting involved with the world of the Winx fairies. Our first game, Winx Sirenix Power let players take part in simple races in an underwater kingdom. Winx Fairy School offers far more with in-depth customisation, multiplayer and social elements building a much richer and more sophisticated experience we believe players will love.”
“We are sure Winx Fairy School will be a great success as for the first time it gives fans across the world the opportunity to create their very own Winx story, enroll to the Alfea College, attend the school of their favorite fairies… all thanks to the strong identification of our fans in their beloved characters.” adds Cristiana Buzzelli, VP, Contents – Digital and Publishing at Rainbow.
Winx Fairy School is due for release in December 2013, initially for Apple iPad and iPhone, with the Android version released shortly afterwards.
