Daddy Yankee previewed the game at NYCC
Always in tune with audiences and the zeitgeist, it was only fitting that groundbreaking, multifaceted Puerto Rican music icon Daddy Yankee previewed his upcoming 3D action video game at Comic Con in New York City over the weekend. With Trylogy Tower Defense, Daddy Yankee becomes the first Latin celebrity with a video game to be used in computers or mobiles.
And what better platform to share the preview with fans than at Comic Con. Deemed the most important pop culture gathering on the East Coast, New York City’s Comic Con brings together the best and most cutting-edge talent from the worlds of graphic novels and comics, television shows and movies, anime and manga, toys and video games.
It was at the sold out Comic Con where a preview of his Trylogy Tower Defense game was featured before its official release on Black Friday, November 29th. Comic Con attendees both young and old were blown away by Daddy Yankee’s newest venture into the gaming world. Many who attended Comic Con and viewed the preview were exciting about the many features of the game, and the affordable price. Gamers who didn’t even speak Spanish were walking away from the exhibit singing along to Yankee’s biggest hits like “Gasolina” and “Limbo” and are anxiously awaiting the release of Trylogy.
The Trylogy Tower Defense is a 3D action video game of a genre known as Tower Defense Games, in which a hero tries to stop enemies from crossing a map by building traps to slow them down and towers from which they are shot at. On the Daddy Yankee game, the artist is both the hero and a third person character that is able to shoot.
As one of its many neat features, Trylogy Tower Defense, priced at US $10, can be played from the user’s Facebook and Twitter accounts. So, no matter where one is, one can play the hottest action video game of the moment… starting Daddy Yankee!
