Gigantosaurus and Ugly Dolls Tie-Ins Coming to PlayStation 4

By Rebecca Smith, 7 months ago
Aside from the LEGO titles, games for children had somewhat fallen by the wayside since the PlayStation 4 was released. Publisher Outright Games is looking to change that. So far they've released titles associated with Ben 10, Hotel Transylvania, Adventure Time, Paw Patrol, How to Train Your Dragon, and even Crayola, and now they're looking to add two more franchises to their catalogue with games based on UglyDolls and Gigantosaurus.


UglyDolls: An Imperfect Adventure is based on the upcoming film UglyDolls. As Moxy or Ox, players will team up with the rest of the UglyDolls — Babo, Ice Bat, Wage, and Ugly Dog — to take on the robots who are trying to turn a procedurally-generated Uglyville into the perfect neighbourhood. The problem is the residents don't want that. They're perfectly happy to embrace each other's differences and personalities. The game will be arriving on PlayStation 4 on April 26th.

Gigantosaurus will, unsurprisingly, be a game based on the Disney Channel TV series Gigantosaurus. The new series, which has only been airing since the middle of last month, is itself based on a book written by Jonny Duddle. Aimed at children under the age of five, the book tells the story of four young dinosaurs, Rocky, Bill, Tiny and Mazu, who set out to solve the mystery of the biggest and fiercest dinosaur in the world, the Gigantosaurus. The game will take players on a new adventure in the same world, with locations inspired by the TV series.

Only players in North America may know the Gigantosaurus name right now as the series is yet to air worldwide, although there are plans to bring it to all other countries with the exception of China, Taiwan, and India. The game will be available on PlayStation 4 in the future.
