Well, in addition to playing online with Farmworld on Facebook, multiplayer games on XBox or other game sites, we now have a panda world we can explore and have fun in.
Dreamworks has just launched a virtual panda world where you can pick a character, play games, explore and achieve different levels. You can play for free, but if you find you want more then what the free access offers you can pay $5.95 a month to explore and play Kung Fu Panda World til your hearts content.
It's actually targeted for children 6- 12 and there are parental controls to keep up with your childs access.
Nice to read that the sequel will be out next year!
"John Batter, DWA's co-president of production, and Rick Rekedal, head of production for DWA Online, told THR that the virtual playground will allow "Panda" fans to pick a kung fu style fitting their personality (monkey, tiger or panda) and customize the look of their character, which particularly girls spent much time on in tests.
Users can then play in-world games (from dance/rhythm to jump-and-run and fight games with such names as "Manis and Crane" and "Kung Fu Beats"), unlock additional abilities and games over time and use in-world virtual coins they earn to buy items, such as clothing or scrolls and potions to enhance game play. The goal is to boost their kung fu mastery by earning colored sashes that stand for ever-improving levels of skill.
To make the virtual world experience fun for the long-term, DWA also plans to add new locations, games and features over time.
The idea is to simulate the growth and journey of Po the Panda, the title character of the 2008 film, which is due for a sequel next year."...The Hollywood Reporter
