Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced Sesame Street: Elmo's Musical Monsterpiece, a new children's video game for the Wii and Nintendo DS. The game encourages preschoolers to sing, dance, and learn through a series of musical games. The game will arrives in stores in June 2012.
All of the music in the game is performed by Ozomatli, and includes some original songs by the popular Los Angeles-based band, whose music is a combination of hip-hop, salsa, dancehall, cumbia, samba, funk, merengue, Jamaican ragga, and Indian raga influences. The game was developed by Griptonite Games, Inc. It includes a parent's page, where parents can review games their child has played and review curriculum goals.
Rosemarie Truglio, Ph.D., Vice President of Education & Research, Sesame Workshop, says, "Sesame Street: Elmo's Musical Monsterpiece gets children up and dancing and encourages music creation. The game also explores emotional expression through music and dance, introduces instrument names and sounds, and helps children to practice early math skills through music."
