NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 12, 2017) - Outfit7, the entertainment company behind the hugely successful Talking Tom and Friends franchise, is excited to announce the launch of My Talking Hank, the very first app dedicated to the goofy and adventurous Talking Hank. For the first time, fans have the chance to interact with the adorable photographer as they join him on the island of Hawaii, where they can take care of Hank and collect animal photos throughout the different animal zones around the island. This new take on Outfit7's signature tamagotchi-style mechanic offers stunning graphics in a game that is interactive and unique.
"Our fans have made it abundantly clear that they love and adore Talking Hank, so we wanted to give them the opportunity to connect with the character in the same ways they have been able to connect with Talking Tom and Talking Angela," said Samo Login, founder and CEO of Outfit7. "Hank is a unique character with so many lovable qualities, so it's no surprise that our fans have been asking for him to have his own app."
The adventure of My Talking Hank begins as a stork delivers a cute and cuddly baby Talking Hank to the tropical island of Hawaii, where he needs your <3 to help him grow, feed him and explore the island. The app goes above and beyond the tamagotchi-style mechanics with an added element of animal photo collecting. Players choose from various foods and toys to lure over 115 different animals so, together with Hank, they can snap a photo to add to their photo album. Animals can show up at any moment in an unlocked animal zone, so players always have something new to look forward to each time they open the app.
"My Talking Hank draws the user in with an entertaining storyline, and allows players to form a deep connection with Talking Hank," said Samo Login. "The graphics and added interactive elements make sure players are always coming back for more."
My Talking Hank is free to download and includes the option for in-app purchases, which range in price. Hank needs your <3 right now, so be sure to download the app today!
