Coronation Street is an upcoming video game being developed by Mindscape. It is based on the British soap opera of the same name. The game was announced on February 5, 2009 and will be released on the Nintendo DS in the fourth quarter of 2009.
The game will be an adventure and task-based concept set within the theme of the famous fictional street. The player character will be able to visit famous places in the street, such as The Kabin, The Rovers Returns, and other places. The player will take on the role of several characters.
Characters get awarded in bonus coins, which they can collect. They can then spend this money, depending on which character they play. So, if you are Ken Barlow, you can buy a new jumper or science book, or if you are Jack Duckworth, you can go to the pub and spend it on pints.
The player can earn bonus points for missions, for example, if you killed Liam Connor for Tony Gordon, he awards you money for the job.
The player first takes the role of Ken Barlow, on the date 8th December 1960 (one day before Coronation Street first broadcasted). He reveals to his parents that he has got into university. However, he needs some clothes to go with his uniform. The player guides him to a shop to get a grey duffle coat, a hat and scarf.
The next part takes place in late December 1960, and the player takes the role of Ena Sharples. They have to sneak around the street, spying on Residents, without getting caught, and get back to the Rovers to report the goings on with Minnie Caldwell and Martha Longhurst.
Other levels include playing Chesney and having to deliver papers, play as Tony Gordon's henchman and run over Liam Connor. In this level, the player must quickly drive out of the area after hitting Liam before the cops arrive.
