May 16, 2008
http://news.awn.com/index.php?ltype=...sitem_no=23305Disney Interactive Studios has released DGamer in North America for Nintendo DS users in conjunction with the launch of the Nintendo DS version of Disney/Walden Media's THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN. DGamer from Disney is the first-of-its-kind online community developed exclusively for Disney video gamers.
Players can now use their Nintendo DS handhelds to interact with each other while on the go via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection and online through the DGamer Web site (www.DGamer.com). The integrated service is scheduled to be included at no additional cost on subsequent Nintendo DS titles from Disney. DGamer is also scheduled to be available in other international regions by 2009.
"DGamer was built around the vision to connect Disney video game fans in a secure, fun environment and it is truly the first integrated online community of its kind to do so on multiple platforms," said Graham Hopper, executive VP and general manager for Disney Interactive Studios. "We recognize the importance of delivering unique experiences to our consumers and how crucial it is for parents to feel confident that the community is secure for their kids."
DGamer, which leverages the community technology of Disney.com, allows players to log into their DS and online accounts to create and customize a unique 3-D avatar and persistent profile.
