Priced at £19.99 ($19.99), the DreamWorks Kids Bundle includes DreamWorks Dragons: Dawn of New Riders, DreamWorks Spirit Lucky’s Big Adventure and DreamWorks Trollhunters: Defenders of Arcadia with all profits from sales to go directly to UNICEF.

“Our partnership with UNICEF has been a huge success out the gate, and we’re overjoyed to see our audience respond so well to what we have always believed is a very authentic and natural alignment between our two brands,” enthuses Outright Games’ Nick Ricks. “These fundraising activities would not be possible without our amazing licensing partners and we’re so grateful for this opportunity to support our efforts in raising awareness for this vital cause.”

It is confirmed that there will be “additional high-profile video game charity bundles” from Outright Games, which are planned to launch in 2023.
