Dora the Explorer Coming to Your Console Soon!

Dora the Explorer Coming to Your Console Soon

Dora the Explorer turns ten this year and Nickelodeon and 2K Play are celebrating in a big way - with a new line-up of video games! Your kids are sure to enjoy Dora's birthday and cooking adventures, as well as Diego's Mega Bloks on their various console.

Dora's Big Birthday Adventure will be available for Wii, Nintendo DS, and Playstation 2, while Dora's Cooking club will be available for the DS only. And Go, Diego, Go! Mega Blocks Build and Rescue will also be available for the DS.

"Partnering with 2K Play allows us to introduce fun and engaging video games that mirror the educational and problem-solving elements that can be found on both Dora the Explorer and Go, Diego, Go!. As we commemorate Dora’s 10th Anniversary, we believe the new lineup will help young fans celebrate this milestone," said Shaan Kandawalla, the Vice President of Nickelodeon's digital retail games, in a press release.

Steve Lux, Vice President of business development for 2K Play said in the same press release, "We’re honored to be Nickelodeon’s partner as we join the worldwide celebration of Dora’s 10th Anniversary. When it comes to making games and connecting with our audience, we share a common mission with Dora the Explorer: we embrace adventure, learning and cultural diversity.”

So what can you expect from the new games? In Dora's Big Birthday Adventure, Dora and Boots will try to find their way out of Storybook Land in time for Dora's birthday party. Based on the Dora the Explorer 10th Anniversary event, which will air on Nickelodeon, little gamers can play as Dora or Boots as they travel through magical lands and work through challenges. If needed, parents can add a second controller to help their little ones through collaborative gameplay.

In Dora's Cooking Club, kids can work through Pre-K and Kindergarten math. Chop, stir, measure, sand sprinkle your way through 30 cooking games, as you make pizza, enchiladas, yogurt, and even berry Fruit Fiestas. Curriculum includes numbers, counting, shapes, patterns, and measurement, and allows parents to check their child's progress with each one.

Diego and Baby Jaguar will have their very first Mega Blocks game, Go, Diego, Go! Mega Bloks Build & Rescue. Players can help Diego rescue lost animals or build homes for them in various habitats. To build the homes, you have to collect Mega Bloks to build construction tools such as submarines, snowmobiles, and off-road trucks.

The games will include the actual voice actors from the television shows. They will be out in stores this November.
