Twins don classic Disney outfits to celebrate launch of new Disney Universe game

 Suited up as Goofy and Aladdin, pop duo Jedward today celebrated the launch of Disney’s brand new fast-paced, multi-player action adventure video game, Disney Universe at the GAME concession of Hamleys, Regent Street.

Disney Universe brings together classic and contemporary Disney and Pixar characters for the first time, so the twins, dressed as two of their favourite Disney icons, met with hoards of screaming fans before announcing their participation in a one-off “Suit Up Challenge”.

The Irish popsters, famed for dressing up, have been challenged to use all manner of wonderful props and costumes to show off the multitude of Disney Universe characters. Choosing from over 40 Disney and PIXAR icons, Jedward will attempt numerous outfit changes to bring as many of them to life as possible. The results of this “Suit Up Challenge” will be filmed for an exclusive video, which will go live online in November.

In the video game players are asked to ‘Suit Up’ as iconic Disney and PIXAR characters such as Mickey Mouse, Simba or Tron, before facing challenges in six classic Disney worlds, including Alice in Wonderland, Monsters Inc and The Lion King . Players battle enemies to save the Universe by defeating numerous villains and overcoming various tasks and challenges. Jedward’s video will see the twosome traversing all six worlds in an array of different costumes.

Jedward declared: “Disney Universe is so cool, you suit up as different Disney characters and then fight to save the Universe. It’s the perfect game for us: team work plus dressing up! We’re really looking forward to the “Suit-up Challenge”, we’ve been practising outfit changes for weeks!” 

Iain Riches, Senior Game Producer for Disney Universe, said: “Disney Universe is all about fast-paced, mischievous, crazy fun and we think the Suit-Up Challenge really encapsulates this.”

Disney Universe is available on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii and to download on PC from today.

One For All, worldwide leader in universal remote controls, launches a new dimension in remotes with its new SmartControl Motion - which activates the most popular commands by a single gesture.

SmartControl Motion allows you to control your devices simply by moving the remote.  And the new 'Goodnight' feature means you can turn everything off just by flipping the device onto its front.

A quick gesture to the right and back again will enable you to skip the commercials when watching programmes recorded using Freeview+ or Sky+, with no additional programming required.  This is because it is already pre-programmed to recognise six pre-defined gestures for all your devices as soon as they're set up.

Move to the left and back towards your device to channel down in TV mode, skip your DVD backwards or rewind your set top box (do it three more times to quadruple the rewind speed). 
Quickly move up then down for play, or down then up for pause - so, for example, you can pause your DVD instantly when rushing to answer the doorbell without looking for the pause button.   For mute, you just double tap on the side of the remote.

SmartControl Motion works with all your digital equipment.  It will control up to six different devices including HDTV, DVB-T (eg. Freeview), IPTV, Blu-ray, iPod docks, Home Cinema, PS2, Xbox 360 and more, across all brands.  It has dedicated keys for media devices such as Blu-ray players, iPod docks and media playback from video game consoles such as PS2 and Xbox 360.

Presented in a glossy gun metal finish, the SmartControl Motion doesn't require any device codes to be input to get A/V equipment set up.

It programmes in less than three minutes with just three key presses for all the most popular brands, thanks to One For All's unique SimpleSet technology.

The SmartControl buttons will then operate multiple devices with just one press.  There are three smart modes for watching TV, watching movies and listening to music.  So you just have to think about what you want to do, not which devices you need to use.

The 'all power off' function will switch off all your devices by holding the power button down for three seconds or by simply flipping over the remote.  White backlit keys mean you can use it in the dark.
