Nickelodeon Launches ‘Nella the Princess Knight’ Games App

Nella mini-games also enable kids to practice math, creative problem solving and fine motor skills

International Kids’ Television Network, Nickelodeon earlier on had made promise that it would launch an App for International markets using the heroine from Nick Jr. series “Nella the Princess Knight”

The game, ”Nella the Princess Knight: Kingdom Adventures“ aims to teach empowerment, self-confidence, resilience and compassion.

A previous game launched in Miami, USA from the kids-media unit used the series “School of Rock” to promote concepts of gender equality using Tomika, a character from that show.

Meanwhile the five Nella mini-games also enable kids to practice math, creative problem solving and fine motor skills. The games are Hide and Seek (players are tasked with finding Nella and her friends with the help of the light of Nella’s sword), Shift Shapes With Bigor The Dragon (Nella helps Dragons order and collect differently-shaped objects), Feed the Impkins (Nella feeds hungry Impkins plum berry ice cream using her lance), Willow needs Support (Nella supports her friend Willow in a gardening contest) and Helping Birds Find Home (Nella, using her bow and arrows, helps lost birds find their homes).

“We are extremely excited about bringing Nella in game format to kids all round the world to inspire important and timely concepts through play, such as compassion and inclusiveness,” said Kate Sils, Vice President, multiplatform and brand engagement, Nickelodeon International.
