A Renegade Kid-developed kart racer and a zombie torture simulator (snicker) are heading to 3DS.

Majesco Entertainment announced today that they will be releasing both Pet Zombies in 3D and Face Kart: Photo Finish exclusively for the 3DS. In Pet Zombies in 3D, players will have the choice of caring for - or deviously tormenting - human zombies. Face Kart: Photo Finish will feature arcade-style racing and multiple uses for the 3DS camera.

Renegade Kid, developer of the DS first-person shooters Moon and Dementium II, is creating Face Kart: Photo Finish. Steering in the game is handled by physically tilting and twisting the 3DS.  Robust camera options include the ability to map your face on an avatar or place your favorite picture over a power-up or landscape. There will be over 20 tracks, and numerous ways to customize your racing avatar. 

Pet Zombies in 3D may be the very first pet simulator in which players can care for undead humans that crave brains for sustenance. The pet zombie game is being developed by 1st Playable Productions, a company that specializes in creating games for kids, but who also ported the first Puzzle Quest to Nintendo DS. Players will have a variety of ways to customize their decaying friends, including arranging their facial bones in gruesome ways and changing their clothing. Multiple activities will utilize the system’s built-in accelerometer, including one where a zombie head is rolled through a maze by tilting the system.

Pet Zombies in 3D and Face Kart: Photo Finish will hit store shelves this fall.

Majesco Entertainment Announces Support For Nintendo 3DS With Two New Games: 'Pet Zombies in 3D' And 'Face Kart: Photo Finish' 

"Undead" Pet Simulation Game and Arcade Style Racer Due Out This Fall

EDISON, N.J, January 18, 2011 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced both Pet Zombies in 3D and Face Kart: Photo Finish exclusively for Nintendo 3DS. Pet Zombies in 3D lets players reanimate their very own zombies with a range of customizations and then care for (or torment!) their pets as they play with them in creepy 3D environments. Face Kart: Photo Finish literally puts YOU in the driver's seat of an arcade style kart racer; players take photos of their face with their Nintendo 3DS camera and use them as avatars for their custom 3D racers, billboards and power-ups.

"We're incredibly excited about the potential of the Nintendo 3DS," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco Entertainment. "Nintendo continues to innovate and Majesco is committed to being a leader in supporting this new device with products that offer consumers engaging and fun interactive entertainment experiences. We look forward to sharing additional Nintendo 3DS product announcements shortly."

Developed by 1st Playable Productions, Pet Zombies in 3D lets players raise their very own decaying human pets by managing their special dietary preferences (brains and the like), bodily maintenance (or lack thereof) and morbid activities needed to keep them happily undead. Players can choose to play with, care for, or even mischievously torment their zombies in creepy locations like cemeteries, evacuated malls or rundown military bases. Each 3D environment is customizable with mix-and-match objects, themed backdrops and even music to best fit each pet zombie's personality and tastes. Throughout the game, players can discover new zombies to add to their horde and customize them with facial bone deformations, variable decay, clothing and unlockable items. Players will also use the Nintendo 3DS accelerometer controls in various activities, including rolling zombie heads through mazes, and can earn trophies and in-game currency to spend in the Zombie Pet Shop.

Developed by Renegade Kid, Face Kart: Photo Finish lets players tilt and turn the Nintendo 3DS to steer their photo customized speedsters through 20 unique race tracks, as they drift around corners, soar over chasms and speed past the competition. Players use the Nintendo 3DS camera to snap their own picture and then map it onto their avatar, the landscape or even a turbo boost so they can pick up their very own power-ups as they race. Each avatar offers up to one hundred choices in hair, clothing and eyewear, plus cars can also be customized by tuning and tweaking to create the ultimate personalized racer.

Pet Zombies in 3D and Face Kart: Photo Finish for Nintendo 3DS are both expected to release this fall. For additional information about Majesco's exciting line of products, please visit http://www.majescoentertainment.com.

If you really can torture the humanoid zombies by continuously inflicting pain on them expect a lot of controversy to come Nintendo's way.
