Yes, Pippi Longstocking The Game is in the making and due out in June 2012.   The Nintendo DS title will be produced by PAN Vision and Ravn Studios and will be developed in conjunction with Saltkråkan, the company which was set up to preserve Astrid Lindgren’s literary heritage.

The Pippi Longstocking title is said to be an adventure game designed for children aged 4 to 10 years old and promises to stay true to the Pippi legacy by offering characters and environments made famous by Astrid Lindgren’s books and movies.

Pan Vision, the developers of the game say “In the game the player gets the opportunity to meet and help well-known characters, solve problems in Pippi’s own way and play together with friends in new and exciting adventures.”

So it sounds like there will be plenty of educational value to the game and it’s June release will  give us a great guilt free opportunity to let our kids loose on video games over the summer holidays*

*Not the whole holidays – just during daylight hours.

  1. Oh how I loved Pippi when I was little! I somehow can’t imagine the same magic with a video game, as Pippi from the television series is so engrained in my brain, but hopefully it will be true to the Pippi spirit. Thanks for sharing!
