DotEmu and Wham-O Release a Real-Life Windjammers Frisbee® in Celebration of the Arcade Game's Relaunch for PlayStation
LOS ANGELES, August 15, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Two of the most iconic games are joining forces. Wham-O, the legendary toy brand and creator of the original Frisbee®, announces it will be releasing a special edition Windjammers 175g Frisbee® in celebration of the classic 90s arcade game's re-release for PS4 and PSVita on Aug. 29. Wham-O's real-life version of Windjammer's "Flying Power Disc" will be sold exclusively at Fangamer.com for the next month.
"We are super excited to be partnering with DotEmu as they relaunch one of everyone's favorite arcade games," says Olyvia Pronin, marketing director of Wham-O. "Now, fans of the game can enjoy Windjammers both on the screen and in their backyards."
Originally launched in 1994, Windjammers is a sports arcade game in which players hurl a flying disc back and forth in various settings. French video game company DotEmu recently announced it would be relaunching the game exclusively for PlayStation, and soon after, partnered with Wham-O in hopes of creating a real-life replica of the game's flying disc.
Wham-O's limited edition Windjammers Frisbee challenges Frisbee fans and Windjammers enthusiasts alike to practice, perform, and compete using all of their favorite moves from the game beyond the screen.
"Wham-O is all about active outdoor play, which is why we were especially enthusiastic about bringing Windjammers' flying disc to life," said Pronin. "It is an absolute must-have collectible for any fan of this awesome game."
In addition to launching the original Frisbee, Wham-O is also the company behind several other classic toys including Hula Hoop®, Hacky Sack®, and Slip 'N Slide®.
