uDraw Gets Redesign

  • More games and fun
  • HD art creation
  • Draw on your television

THQ’s latest uDraw will adopt a new look – a sleek, contemporary design that incorporates console controls directly into the uDraw GameTablet. 

New features of the device include high-definition art creation and gameplay; a stylus with better sensitivity; motion features; longer drawing time; plus direct touch-screen control that incorporates pinch-and-stretch and rotation features.

A new version of uDraw Studiosoftware – called uDraw Studio: Instant Artist– will bring the core functions of the uDraw GameTablet to life on your television.  It is also scheduled to be available later this year, and will come bundled with the new uDraws.  This software package offers guided tutorials to teach basics of art and design, as well as an intuitive interface that keeps art tools on screen at all times.

THQ is also in production on a number of new uDraw titles planned for the next six months, both for the new HD-capable uDraw as well as the uDraw GameTablet for Wii.  The games make use of the device’s play patterns and functionality. 

Before the end of the year, the  library of uDraw titles will include Pictionary: Ultimate Edition, a new, high-tech version of the classic game of quick sketches and crazy guesses, which will feature new clues – and new functionality –created for the uDraw on Xbox 360 and PS3 platforms.  For Wii, Pictionary has been one of uDraw’s most popular games.

Exclusively for Wii, Nickelodeon and DreamWorks Animation’s The Penguins of Madagascar will start up an all new, super-secret operation that brings their inimitable brand of humour to the uDraw GameTablet.  Players will lead “Team Penguin” on a zany adventure through the zoo and beyond in a brand-new story that brings them face to face with a nemesis who’s making a surprise return.

The new titles are scheduled to join SpongeBob SquigglePants, Kung Fu Panda 2, Dood’s Big Adventure and the original Pictionary in an ever-growing lineup that spotlights the virtually unlimited creative and play power of the uDraw GameTablet.  THQ plans to introduce additional titles for uDraw throughout 2011 and 2012.

The uDraw GameTablet for Xbox 360 and PS3 is scheduled to be available in time for the holiday season, joining the uDraw for Wii
