The Rio Film Franchise Comes to Life in a Match-3 Adventure; Jesse Eisenberg reprises his role as Blu.
Plarium, a developer of mobile, social, and web-based games with more than 250 million users worldwide, in partnership with Fox Interactive, today announces the launch of their latest AAA Match-3 game, Rio: Match-3 Party for Android and iOS devices. This family-friendly adventure combines fun and fast-paced puzzle mechanics with the vibrant star-studded world of the Rio franchise.
Players will explore the jungles of the Amazon and the streets of Rio de Janeiro as they help Blu, Jewel, Nico, Pedro and the rest of the Rio gang throw the best parties Brazil has ever seen. From stunning locations and colorful stories, to over 15 hours of fully-voiced interactive character dialogue including Jesse Eisenberg returning as Blu, Plarium delivers everything players expect from the acclaimed franchise.
“Rio combines the signature AAA production values and depth of Plarium’s flagship mobile titles with the casual gameplay of Match-3 to create something really special,” says Gabi Shalel, CMO of Plarium. “Knowing how much fans love the energy, characters, and adventures of the Rio world, we had to go beyond what people expect from a typical Match-3 game. With accessible, yet challenging gameplay, detailed 3D character animations, lush environments, and fully-voiced interactive dialogue, we feel that we’ve set a new gold standard for the genre.”
Players will work their way through hundreds of levels as they master special challenges, meet new characters, unlock unique abilities, and collect everything they need to throw parties across the exciting destinations from the films. With offline and online gameplay modes, players can go it alone or compete with their friends for top scores, free gifts, and tournament rankings.
