Press Release

"AGOURA HILLS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Global fashion icon Barbie™ is preparing for an around-the-world journey that will take her to stylish fashion hot spots in the all-new Barbie® Jet, Set & Style™ video game, scheduled for release in September from THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) and Mattel.

To create “Hair-tastic” hair styles, style trendy couture and do makeup and nails for spectacularly glamorous clients, Barbie™ fans will use the Wii Remote™ and their Nintendo DS™ and DSi™ handheld systems, which incorporate realistic styling movements. Players will work with high-fashion clients in such vibrant locales as Tokyo, Rio de Janeiro, Paris and Hong Kong, jetting from one international hot spot to the next aboard the Barbie jet salon.

Barbie® Jet, Set & Style™ lets players develop and perfect their skills as they prepare to impress the most thrilling client of all: Barbie™, who is producing a Global Glam Fashion Show.

"Barbie has a rich history in video games, and thanks to Nintendo’s popular systems, this is the first time we are able to bring classic Barbie play patterns to a video game," said Martin Good, Executive Vice President of PlayTHQ™, the company's division for kids, family and casual games. "Girls around the world love to dress, style and make up Barbie, and we've combined those activities with an exciting story to create a Barbie game experience unlike any before."

Barbie® Jet, Set & Style™ will take players to 10 different international cities, where they will be able to create custom coiffures in the “Hair-tastic” styling salon; provide manicures and makeovers for ultra-glam clientele; and mix and match wardrobes to make their clients divine. Along the way, they’ll gain the experience they need to style for Barbie™ herself, at her ultimate Global Glam Fashion Show – and Barbie™ needs to look more stunning than ever, since her escort for this worldwide event is none other than Ken™.

Barbie® Jet, Set & Style™ is scheduled to be available worldwide this September for Wii (MSRP $29.99 USD) and Nintendo DS/DSi game systems (MSRP $19.99 USD)."
