For review tokens, please do not hesitate to contact me. Details on embargo and other information will be made available upon request.
JUJU is classic platforming done right with a little something for everyone, including hardcore and challenge modes, memorable boss battles, and a unique co-op feature made for geek parents who want to introduce their kids to games.
In this classic-style style platformer, take on the role of Juju as he jumps, dashes and bashes through 40 stages to rescue his father and save the world from the evil Calypso. Invite a friend to play cooperatively as Peyo, Juju’s best friend, as you uncover ancient secrets and defeat gigantic bosses.
JUJU is rethinking cooperative gameplay for two people of unequal skill, such as parents and kids, with features including drop-in/out multiplayer, competition-free gameplay, and the optional second character; Peyo. Armed with an extra tongue attack and reduced chance to be targeted by bosses, Peyo has been created specifically for new players to get their feet wet in gaming.
JUJU will be available as a digital download beginning December 9 & 10 for PlayStation 3 (PSN), Xbox 360 (XBLA), and PC (Steam).
