Club Penguin Waddles Into Mobile

An iPad companion app to Disney’s MMO-for-kids, Club Penguin, is slated to roll out today, the company said in a press release. Players will be able to customize and sync their penguin characters between the iPad app and the popular Web-only Flash game, and also play four mini games ported over from the Web. Disney Interactive VP Chris Heatherly (who sat down for a Q&A with AllThingsD last month) said the studio plans to update the app roughly once a month until the whole game experience is playable on mobile.
