Girls Saddle Up With Their Favorite Disney Princesses in Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show
BURBANK, Calif., Oct 22, 2003 -- Disney princess fans are about to take the ride of their lives. Disney Interactive, a publishing label of Buena Vista Games, Inc., today announced that Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show is now shipping on PC/MAC to retail stores nationwide. Featuring Disney's most cherished princesses, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Belle and Snow White, the title lets girls experience caring for horses, as they decorate, show and ride their own fantasy horses in a magical Royal Horse Show.
"Disney Interactive is pleased to introduce Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show, a truly unique product that allows young girls to experience the equestrian world with their favorite Disney Princesses," said Bob Picunko, director of marketing for Disney Interactive. "From decorating to riding, the title offers a broad range of activity options that girls will want to play again and again."
In Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show, girls, ages 5 and up, step inside the role of horse caregiver as they prepare to participate in the Royal Horse Show. From the moment players step into the Royal Fairgrounds, Disney's princesses are there to guide them with every task, from Sleeping Beauty helping girls with selecting and decorating their horses in the Royal Stable to Snow White giving riding lessons in the Show Ring. The choices are endless, with six horses to choose from, more than 250,000 possible Royal Horse costume configurations and 20 different show ring rides to master with three difficulty levels each. Girls can also decorate the Royal Fairgrounds to match their most amazing fantasy with more than 7,000 design options, including amazing flags, beautiful flowers, eye-catching banners and more.
Beyond the Fairgrounds, Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show also includes The Craft Cottage, where Belle guides girls in printing out riding certificates, earned every time they come in the top three in a ride competition. Girls can also print trading cards featuring different horse breeds and determine their height using the specially included growth chart that measures them in horse hands, rather than feet. In the Pony Barn, PC users can save "Sparkle the pony" to their PC desktop. When girls click on Sparkle, the character performs cute animated sequences for them to enjoy. For Macintosh users, beautiful scene screenshots that will remind girls of their experiences from the game are available to view.
Availability and System Requirements
Disney Princess: Royal Horse Show is shipping now to stores nationwide and carries a suggested retail price of $19.99. The title is compatible with Windows® 98, 98SE, ME and XP, as well as Macintosh 0S 9.1+ (classic mode).
