Based on the animated kids show, MeteoHeroes – Saving Planet Earth is now available in physical format for the PS4 and in six languages.
Following the digital launch in February of the first-ever MeteoHeroes videogame on PlayStation and PC (STEAM platform), Mondo TV Studios, part of Mondo TV Group, one of the largest European producers and distributors of animated content, has announced the arrival of the game MeteoHeroes – Saving Planet Earth in physical format.
The game is available for PlayStation 4 and published by independent distributor Meridiem Games. Markets already confirmed for the launch include Spain, Italy and the UK, and the game will be available in six languages: Italian, Spanish, English, French, Portuguese and German.
The environmentally themed animated kids’ show MeteoHeroes, co-produced by Mondo TV and Italian weather forecasting centre Meteo Operations Italia (MOPI), has inspired the video game, a co-production between Sony Interactive Entertainment España, development partner Gammera Nest and Mondo TV Studios. The MeteoHeroes video game also has the support of PlayStation Talents under PlayStation Alliances, the company’s programme that promotes the development of video games in Spain.
MeteoHeroes – Saving Planet Earth invites children to join the much-loved characters from the popular TV series in a fun action platform game. There are enemies to escape from, fast-moving adventures and multiple locations in cities on all the world’s continents, where players will have to find hidden items on the screen that will help them rid each city of pollution and decay.
Each episode of MeteoHeroes focuses on issues related to ecology and respect for nature through the adventures of six superpowered kids who can control weather phenomena. Now in its third year of success, it is available in 180 plus countries and 22 languages.
In April, the second season of MeteoHeroes (52 episodes x 13′) had its world premiere on Cartoonito in Italy and the first two (of four) 26-minute TV movies arrived on Cartoonito for this autumn.
Further underlining the importance of MeteoHeroes in both education and entertainment are two important recent initiatives, the video game played an important part this summer in the Real Madrid Foundation Campus Experience within the Football and Responsible Gaming programme at Real Madrid City training complex.
In addition, MeteoHeroes is an integral partner in a climate education campaign being launched in the US. A host of partners have committed to launch in 30,000 US schools reaching 15m kids aged 4-10. Following the US launch, the campaign will be rolled out to tens of millions of school-aged children around the world.
Maria Bonaria Fois, CEO of Mondo TV Studios, said: “MeteoHeroes – Saving Planet Earth has been getting strong recognition from the vast fan base of the TV series in its digital format. Now that the video game is also available in a physical version at retail outlets, we look forward to seeing further growth in the reach and following of the MeteoHeroes brand. This success shows, once again, how video games, led by high-quality content, can be a powerful tool for transmitting important values.”
