2K Play today announced that it will be bringing The Greatest Show on Earth to the Wii and DS.
From 2K Play
For the first time in the near 140-year history of Ringling Bros., the breathtaking thrills and timeless magic of this storied brand will be coming to the Wii home video game system from Nintendo and Nintendo DS. The new Ringling Bros. themed games are scheduled to ship this holiday season as 2K Play further extends its portfolio of family friendly video game offerings.
"We are very excited to partner with 2K Play. These upcoming games add an entirely new interactive dimension to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey experience," said Nicole Feld, Ringling Bros. producer and Feld Entertainment Executive Vice President. "Now circus fans of all ages can continue to experience the thrills and excitement of Ringling Bros. when they play these new games at home."
During a recent Ringling Bros. performance at Madison Square Garden, and in celebration of this partnership with 2K Play, a Ringling Bros. high-wire artist took to the air and made a thrilling 25-foot walk across a tightrope while maintaining his balance with only a Wii Remote and Nunchuk in his hands, to the delight of upward-gazing onlookers. It no doubt was a precursor of what to expect in the upcoming video games.
