SAN FRANCISCO – Feb. 4, 2013 – PlayFirst® Inc., today announced the Android debut of Wedding Dash® exclusively for Kindle Fire Tablets. Today’s launch, featured in Amazon’s Valentine’s Day promotion, marks PlayFirst’s third mobile game release for Android from the hit DASH® franchise, following beloved games Diner Dash® and Cooking Dash®. Released in October for Kindle Fire, Diner Dash® sprinted up to No. 3 on the Amazon best seller list, followed by the successful release of Cooking Dash® in December. Wedding Dash is another fan-favorite entry in the series, as shown by the iOS version’s 4.5-star average rating.
“Meeting people wherever they play is important to us, and PlayFirst believes bringing our games to Android with Amazon is a smart way to reach new fans of the DASH franchise,” said Marco DeMiroz, president and CEO, PlayFirst. “Offering Wedding Dash to Kindle Fire users was the perfect match for this Valentine’s Day.”
Wedding Dash stars aspiring wedding planner Quinn as she launches her own business designing receptions for picky brides and grooms.
