Disney announced today that a game called Disney Fairies
will be heading to the Nintendo DS this holiday season. Apparently, Disney Fairies
is an entire franchise, spanning books, online minigames, movies, and maybe even other forms of media, too.
The DS game will let young girls (we hate to generalize, but come on) dress and accessorize Tinker Bell, as well as barter for more clothes from other fairies. (After all, why not let Tinks wear something other than
a leaf dress?) Other activities will include minigames, of course, and completing tasks for the fairies of Pixie Hollow. Disney Fairies
will also make use of Disney's new DGamer service
, which launched last week.
Confession: If this game had come out when this blogger was a wee lass -- oh, never mind, there's no sense in shaming the DS Fanboy staff and girl gamers all over the world. (Oops, too late.)
