Remember the computer game? It was packed with educational fun -- focused on all sorts of subjects from geography to English. Wondered where Carmen Sandiego went? Yeah, I did too -- but she's actually back!!!
And it's called 'Carmen Sandiego Returns.'
“Carmen Sandiego Returns preserves the core gameplay, style and characters of the original game, while giving the brand a modern twist for today’s digitally-savvy learners,” said CJ Kettler, Chief of Consumer Brands and Strategy at Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in a release.
Carmen is considered to be of Hispanic descent and The Mary Sue talks about how Carmen was a huge role model to young Latina girls. The site also mentions how Carmen "[was] the first major American pop example of mischievous yet beloved hero who also happens to be both woman and Latin American."
I am glad Camen is back!
