"Hotel for Dogs", the video game based on the upcoming feature “Hotel For Dogs” from DreamWorks Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies, will jump, sit and stay in North America, January 2009.

Coming to the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and Windows-based PC, "Hotel for Dogs" features the likenesses/voices of actors Emma Roberts and Jake T. Austin.

Players enter an old hotel to help two siblings, 'Andi' and 'Bruce', feed and entertain a collection of canines by building gadgets and playing with pooches.

Navigating through 10 levels of challenging game play, players must accomplish various goals to keep the canines both healthy and amused. Players will also explore areas outside of the hotel as they attempt to locate and rescue additional pups.

Distributed by Paramount Pictures, the live-action "Hotel for Dogs" also stars Lisa "Friends" Kudrow, Kevin "Entourage" Dillon and Don "Hotel Rwanda" Cheadle.

Premise of the film follows 16-year old 'Andi' (Roberts) and her younger brother, 'Bruce' (Austin), with Andi using her quick wit to help find a new home for their dog 'Friday'. The kids stumble on an abandoned hotel and, using Bruce’s talents as a mechanical genius, transform it into a magical dog-paradise for Friday and the rest of his doggie pals. When barking dogs make neighbors suspicious, Andi and Bruce use every invention they have to avoid anyone discovering 'who let the dogs in'.

“We expect this to be a strong holiday season for family-friendly video games and 'Hotel for Dogs' is a terrific game for kids of all ages,” said Jeremy Barnett, vice president, marketing/business development, 505 Games (US).
