Disney wants Wii and PS2 gamers to TH!NK Fast

Being as it’s so early in the morning (and I’ve barely made it through my first cup of coffee), I don’t appreciate Disney Interactive Studios expecting me to think fast. Wait, make that TH!NK Fast, a game show-style trivia game just announced this morning for the Wii and the PlayStation 2. 

Skewed towards the kiddies (or Disney die-hards), TH!NK Fast will feature over 5,000 questions on topics like Disney-related trivia and general knowledge (“At what time is it too early to expect someone to think fast?”). Players can choose from a number of Disney character avatars, including Mickey Mouse, Goofy, and Minnie Mouse.

The game supports four players, and the PS2 version of the game will ship with four buzzer controllers; the Wii version of the game will utilize the Wii Remote and nunchuck as buzzers. Oh, and there’s also mini-games thrown in for good measure, because what’s a good casual title without them?

Add TH!NK Fast to your wish list now, beacuse it’ll be available this holiday season.
