The launch of The Bachelor: The Video Game on the Wii and Nintendo DS system was yesterday, where players can experience all of the excitement and romance of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette hit reality series. The game is available now exclusively at GameStop stores in the United States through September 30 and afterwards at major retailers nationwide. It is available now in Canada at all major retailers.
Guided by Chris Harrison, host of the hit TV series, The Bachelor: The Video Game features characters based on actual Bachelors and Bachelorettes from the top-rated series, including the most recent Bachelor, Jake Pavelka, and Bachelorette, Ali Fedotowsky. In the game, players compete in a collection of fun mini-game date challenges for a shot at romance. Success is measured with every date as players vie to win the attention and ultimately the heart of the Bachelor or Bachelorette by collecting roses along the way. Players can compete as female contestants for the Bachelor or as male contestants for the Bachelorette.
In single player mode, the game is structured like the TV show. It is comprised of multiple “episodes” where the player competes against the game characters for time alone with the Bachelor or Bachelorette. The Wii version offers multiplayer mode for a fun party game enabling players to compete against their “frenemies.” Opponents can sabotage others’ dates and prevent them from receiving a rose!
During each “episode” or game, contestants go on a variety of Group Dates and a One-On-One Date to earn hearts. These dates include fun challenges, puzzles and mini-games, which test skills such as memory, speed, observation and precision. Players can also unlock personality quizzes and find out which Bachelor or Bachelorette you are most compatible with using the Match Maker.
Created by Ludia, Inc., The Bachelor: The Video Game is rated “T” for Teen and available on Wii and the Nintendo DS for $29.99.
