Redesigned Magic Remote Lets Users Easily Jump Into
LAS VEGAS, Jan. 7, 2013–LG Electronics (LG) today unveiled the addition of new games for its SmartTVs, including popular, hand-picked titles such as Where’s My Water, The SimsTM FreePlay, Air Penguin and Mini Motor Racing, at the 2013 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas (booth #8204). Consumers of all ages can play these family-friendly, interactive games using LG’s new and improved motion-sensing Magic Remote.
“Our extensive library of games has been growing steadily since we launched the first 3D titles for Smart TV last July,” said Havis Kwon, president and CEO of the LG Home Entertainment Company. “The whole family can enjoy some of the world’s most popular games right in their own living room. The Magic Remote, Dual Play and the controller app for smartphones demonstrate our commitment to bringing a better gaming experience to CINEMA 3D Smart TV owners.”
LG’s Smart TV platform leverages the popularity of games on smartphones and tablets to bring consumers an immersive and interactive entertainment experience in the home. Available in the coming months for download on current and future LG Smart TVs, these new games were hand-selected based on their positive reputation among consumers. For example, an instant classic, Disney’s Where’s My Water, soared in popularity to become the number one downloaded game in 90 countries.
Also arriving on LG’s Smart TV platform in 2013 is The Sims FreePlay from leading game developer and publisher, Electronic ArtsInc.(EA). The “real world” simulation builds on The Sims series, which sold more than 150 million copies worldwide. In addition to using the Magic Remote to control the onscreen action, players have the option of downloading a convenient remote controller smartphone app specifically designed for The Sims FreePlay.
Selected titles are optimized for 3D TV such as Mini Motor Racing, developed by The Binary Mill and powered by Unity Engine, which also supports LG’s Dual Play feature. Perfect for two-player games, Dual Play uses LG’s FPR 3D technology to allow each player to see their respective character in full-screen mode instead of the more common split-screen view.
Each title will be available for download from LG’s SmartWorld beginning the first quarter of 2013.
