Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced today the release of downloadable mini-games from Buzz! Junior series available this winter, for PS3 via PlayStation Network.

Five madcap mini-games from the original Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party for PlayStation 2 will be available in upscaled 720p High Definition to download at PlayStation Store.

"Play baseball with elephants, take a bubble bath with a grumpy gorilla or be quick to pass the monkey bomb before it explodes! It’s buzzer-bashing fun for all the family in a jungle paradise, where players can select from one of four cheeky monkeys to go wild in five crazy challenges. And don’t worry if less than four players are present – computer-controlled chimps will fill in and compete with you as you Buzz! your way to become monkey king of the jungle."

Buzz! Junior titles offer all the fun and easy gameplay of Buzz! controllers but with wacky mini-games of skill and speed rather than trivia-based play – making them perfect for youngsters to play with friends and family. They can be played either with the original Buzz! buzzers for PlayStation 2 or the new wireless Buzz! buzzers for PS3.

Buzz! Junior: Jungle Party will be the first to arrive on PlayStation Network; it will soon be followed by similar downloads from Buzz! Junior: RoboJam and Buzz! Junior: Monster Rumble.
