Cyber Group Studios has partnered with Outright Games for a video game based on its animated preschool series Gigantosaurus.

In Gigantosaurus: The Game, players can explore and race across the vast, prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus in a one-of-a-kind dinosaur adventure that is part saving the world, part rally racing. The game will launch on March 27, 2020, on PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One and PC digital.

Kids can play as one of their favorite dinosaurs from the show—Rocky, Tiny, Mazu or Bill—as they discover secrets, solve puzzles and save the day. Key features of the game include Dino Racing and Play Together, in which up to four people can create adventures together.

Gigantosaurus is currently airing its first season on Disney Junior worldwide and has just been commissioned by The Walt Disney Company and France Télévisions for seasons two and three and by Super RTL for season two. The first season will also air on Netflix and on various international networks throughout 2020, including CCTV in China, Rai in Italy, SVT in Sweden, SRC in Canada and Tiny Pop in the U.K.

The series is based on Jonny Duddle’s best-selling book of the same name. Directed by award-winning director Olivier Lelardoux, the series takes preschoolers on exciting, comedy-filled adventures as they dare to be themselves and explore the world beyond their nests. In every episode, the curious young dinosaurs explore the mystery of Gigantosaurus—the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all.

“This new game represents a big step for us and the creation of high-quality kids’ interactive entertainment,” said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games. “Working closely with Cyber Group Studios and the full gamut of original assets from the hit show, allowed us to develop a game that truly feels like playing through an episode of the series.”

Gigantosaurus: The Game is our first video game with Outright Games. All along the development process, we have been thrilled by the talent and expertise of the production team,” commented Thierry Braille, VP of interactive and the videogame division, and Dominique Bourse, COO of Cyber Group Studios “The result is a great and innovative game for the whole family mixing action adventure and racing and offering 2 multi-player modes (cooperative and competitive). This feature will allow families to play together with the key characters of the TV series.”
