Popular children’s characters, Magic Belles, also wins at the prestigious Lovie Awards!
DCD Publishing is delighted to announce that it has licensed pre school brand Magic Belles to Reward Studios in a worldwide deal that will take Magic Belles into the video gaming space.
On the back of their hugely popular website and critically acclaimed app, the Magic Belles and their fairy home of Bellevue will be brought to life in a new, exciting and fully interactive world. The first game release will be available on the Nintendo Wii U platform in winter 2014.
“We’re absolutely delighted to be able to bring Magic Belles to a new platform and further strengthen our presence in the online and gaming world. We’re also thrilled to be working with Reward Studios to offer our little fans the opportunity to fully experience the magical, musical world of the colourful fairy characters we’ve created,” said Maxine Stinton, co-creator of Magic Belles.

The jury was comprised of web industry experts, including Co-founder of TechHub Mike Butcher, Presenter Stephen Fry and WIRED Editor at Large Ben Hammersley.
