Building on the popularity of the existing Big Quiz and Music Quiz titles, Buzz is back in two new games. Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party will be the first of a new line of junior titles, and will feature plenty of humour and cheekiness to keep kids entertained. Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party will arrive in time for Christmas 2006.
"Buzz!: The Music Quiz introduced the world to buzzer-driven gameplay and has proven to be a huge hit for social gamers who like to have fun and party!" commented Mark Hardy, SCEE Software Marketing Director.
"This autumn sees us extending the Buzz! franchise to target a new audience of younger kids and their mates. This is an audience who may want to enjoy the sociability and healthy competition of the Buzz! games but may not be old enough to recognise the music and general knowledge questions in the previous titles. With the Buzz! Junior franchise they will have access to a range of bespoke games driven by a simple to use buzzer control system, based on coloured stimulus or reaction timings."
The second new Buzz! game announced is Buzz Sports. As the name suggests, the game will follow the same formula as previous Buzz! titles, but with a focus on sports trivia. The game will feature support for up to eight players, and will be released in Q3 2006.
"They just had to have me back for another series and this time it's Sports, something I am a natural at," said Buzz, the host with all the answers. "With some of the high profile friends I have in the sports world, I have been offered plenty of incentives to make sure certain celebs are included. But any money I do receive will obviously go straight to charity."
