FLIPS™ is an innovative new book range created by EA for the Nintendo DS™. The series has been designed to give children of all ages a fun new way to read their favorite books. EA has worked with some of the UK’s leading publishers of children's books and magazines, including Egmont and Penguin Publishing, to bring modern classic titles from critically acclaimed authors such as Cathy Cassidy, Eoin Colfer, Enid Blyton, and the various writers from the popular boys series, ‘Too Ghoul for School’ to the DS. Each FLIPS title features multiple books and the first four titles will be exclusively released on Nintendo DS in Ireland on the 4th December 2009.
FLIPS uses the DS touch screen and stylus to enable children to read and interact by combining the world of storytelling with quizzes and references to characters, encouraging greater concentration and incentive to finish every chapter. Within the books, links appear to give the reader a unique way of interacting with the story and enhancing their experience.
Each FLIPS title featuring six to eight books will be sold separately with an RRP of €29.99 each. The books are available from Smyths Toys nationwide, Gamestop and Xtravision.
EA has teamed up with Schooldays.ie.ie to give you the chance to win one of 2 Nintendo DSi handheld consoles and the entire FLIPS range of books to get your book worms reading this Christmas.
