From the most viewed YouTube video in history ‘Baby Shark’, comes its first standalone PC and console rhythmic adventure video game for the whole family to enjoy
SEOUL, South Korea, June 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — The Pinkfong Company, the global entertainment company behind the cultural phenomenon Baby Shark, partners with Outright Games, the leading global publisher of family-friendly interactive entertainment, to launch Baby Shark’s first standalone PC and console game, ‘Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party’. With the most viewed video on YouTube and RIAA Diamond certification (11x Platinum), this record-setting sensation is being brought to life with an all-new rhythmic adventure game. Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party launches 15th September 2023 for PlayStation 4®, PlayStation 5®, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox X|S, and Steam.
Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party is a cooperative rhythmic adventure where players will be fully immersed in the vibrant Baby Shark universe with one goal: to sing and have fun with friends and family. Players will swim across oceans as either Baby Shark, Mommy Shark, Daddy Shark, Grandma Shark, or Grandpa Shark to unlock the story of family and friendship as they complete each level. Players can swim solo or team up with up to 3 family members and friends in 4-player local co-op mode. Fans will get to enjoy 30 songs including catchy classics such as ‘Baby Shark’, ‘Disco Sharks’, and ‘Shark Dance Party’ on their oceanic adventure.
The story unfolds in the unique style of following the Shark Family as they take a vacation across the ocean to the Fin-Tastic Festival, the biggest music contest in the whole ocean. Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party allows players to explore 7 recognizable locations from the fan-favorite Baby Shark videos such as the stunning Tropical Bay, the vast Ocean City, and the dark Kingdom of the Deep, to get to the festival. The game features Rhythm or Runner Mode where players have to stay on the beat and complete levels to collect cards and stickers. For extra fun, the five playable characters from the Shark Family are customizable with unlockable costumes and skins to collect in-game.
The game has been created with all family members in mind, and designed to be accessible and educational for even the youngest Baby Shark fans. As they travel across the ocean, young gamers, between 3-6 years old, will also be helped to develop their psychomotor skills through rhythmic gameplay and a gradual difficulty curve. To help young players who are learning to read, the game developers have incorporated a full game voice-over for all dialogue, location names, and instructions. The game features festivals and holidays from around the globe such as Día de los Santos as well as music from many genres like orchestral music, reggaeton, and rock. Short levels and easy repetition mechanics position Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party as the perfect introductory game for young gamers to learn how to play.
Pinkfong’s Baby Shark has been captivating fans around the world since it first broke the internet in 2015. After taking the world by storm, Baby Shark has expanded its universe with an animated TV series, podcasts, live shows, merchandise, and even a full-length feature film in development for the 2023 holiday season. With the upcoming Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party, fans can look forward to another extraordinary chapter in Baby Shark’s legacy of fostering imagination, creativity, and love for music in the hearts of families everywhere.
Bin Jeong, CEO of Pinkfong USA, said, “We are thrilled to announce our collaboration with Outright Games to bring Baby Shark’s fun and exciting songs and dance moves to the world of console and PC gaming. We can’t wait for fans of all ages to create unforgettable memories with their friends and families as they enjoy the game together.”

Baby Shark: Sing & Swim Party will create a brand new way for fans to interact with the IP.”
