Spanish language version launched and date set for Volume Two release.

The Kansas City-based collaboration team of Kid Rocket Inc. and Propaganda3 celebrated a major milestone with their iPad app Kung Fu Robot by recently reaching over 100,000 App Store downloads since its release in May 2013. The app quickly hit #3 in the books category in the US App Store, reached #5 in the newly created Kids category for children ages 9-11 in September and has gained a notable following in the UK, China and the Middle East.

Available as a free download for the iPad, the inaugural edition of Kung Fu Robot introduces children of all ages to a robot's love of kung fu, his conscientious sidekick's fear of getting in trouble, android ninjas, a crazy rooster bent on world domination and the pursuit of the perfect peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Its original storyline, art, animation, soundtrack and mini-games have caught the attention of critics as well and in November was named by Parents Magazine as one of 2013's "Best Free Kids' Apps."

A standalone Spanish-language version of Kung Fu Robot, titled "Cómo Hacer Un Sándwich de Mantequilla de Maní, Mermelada y Kung Fu," is also now available for download in the App Stores for Argentina, Belize, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Spain, Uruguay and Venezuela.

Three more installments of the "How to Make a Peanut Butter, Jelly & Kung Fu Sandwich" story arc are slated for 2014, with Volume Two planned for release in early March.

"Bringing this character and story to life has been a long journey," says Kung Fu Robot creator and Kid Rocket Inc. founder Jason Bays. "To finally see him out in the world and being embraced by kids of all ages is truly amazing."

"Working with Jason has been a tremendous source of excitement for us," says Propaganda3 founder/CEO Cello Vergara. "At our core we are storytellers. To be trusted by a fellow storyteller with something as personal as this is quite humbling. We look forward to seeing where this ongoing collaboration takes us."
