"These new video games are so much fun! Fans can create their own music video and sing, dance, act and perform along with me and the rest of the cast from Victorious," said Victoria Justice, star of Victorious. "It is a cool opportunity for our fans to be a part of the cast and experience life as a student at Hollywood Arts High School."

"We are offering the many Victorious fans an opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the coveted Hollywood Arts High School, where only the most talented students are accepted," said Peter Andrew, vice president of production, D3P. "This is the only Victorious interactive experience where players can become superstars and interact with the cast, in a world authentic to the show they know and love."

About Victorious (The Television Show)

Currently in its second season, Victorious follows teenager Tori Vega (Victoria Justice) who attends the prestigious performing arts high school, Hollywood Arts. From her first day at the school, however, Tori feels out of place among the amazingly talented students, especially mean diva Jade (Elizabeth Gillies, Broadway's 13). But with the help of her older sister Trina (Daniella Monet, A Fairly Odd Movie, Nancy Drew) and new friends including the musically gifted Andre (Leon Thomas III, August Rush, Broadway's The Lion King, iCarly), brooding bad boy Beck (Avan Jogia, Spectacular!), eccentric Cat (Ariana Grande, Broadway's 13) and lovable but psychologically scrambled ventriloquist Robbie (Matthew Bennett) - Tori realizes that she was born to perform and that entertaining people not only makes her happy but may change her life. The series features original music performed by Victoria Justice and the ensemble cast.
