Play Video Games & Support The American Red Cross
Grab a tuxedo and join Jimmy Fallon & Jimmie Johnson, five-time NASCAR champion in the over-the-top kart-racer “Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With An Engine”. “Late Night” host Jimmy Fallon will be the first downloadable content (DLC) character in Jimmie Johnson’s Anything With An Engine, which launches next week as boxed product for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, followed by a Wii release in November. Fallon’s character was revealed when he and Johnson played the game on “Late Night,” which aired on NBC Wednesday, Oct. 26 at 12:35 a.m. A clip of Jimmie Johnson’s appearance is available HERE
”One of the motivations behind making this game was to have fun with my friends,” said Jimmie Johnson. “I have been on Jimmy’s show a few times and we have raced against each other. The last time he beat me, so having him in the game as the first downloadable character was the perfect way to step up our racing rivalry and to invite our fans in on the fun.”
Fallon’s character and vehicle will be available later this year on Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network. A portion of the proceeds from sales of the Jimmy Fallon DLC character will go to the American Red Cross, the nation’s premier emergency response organization.
“Jimmie’s goal from the start was to create a fun and creative racing experience, where players could race anything – from bathtubs to barstools,” said Jason Donnell, president and COO, Autumn Games. “Given the game’s focus on fun and personality, we couldn’t think of a better creative partner for the first DLC character than Jimmy Fallon. We’ve had a blast working with him and his team on his character. It has been doubly rewarding for us to have the opportunity to not only give fans great new content so soon after launch, but to also give them the chance to support such an impactful organization as the Red Cross.”
So play the game and support The Red Cross!!!
