The first 15 years of girlgames

THQ Inc. today announced that Bratz Girlz Really Rock is currently in development and is expected to release on Wii, PlayStation2 and Nintendo DS this fall.

Based on the upcoming doll line and animated movie of the same name, the game will feature an exciting story line and a full range of activities including live music performances, a makeover station with the latest make-up and hairstyling choices, a fashion design suite as well as skydiving and miniature golf to play with a friend.

The Bratz video game portfolio from THQ has enjoyed much success, with life-to-date sales making it one of the top-selling girls gaming franchises of all time (!).
