THQ has announced that WALL•E, the video game based on the Disney/Pixar film, has shipped into retail outlets throughout North America for a variety of platforms including Mac OS X.
Developed by Heavy Iron Studios, the game lets players take control of WALL •E and EVE in a fast-paced adventure based on the upcoming film. The game gives fans the chance to relive some of the movie’s memorable moments as they explore more than nine massive environments filled with action and adventure or engage in head-to-head multiplayer challenges. Players will recognize the storyline, characters and key locations from the WALL•E film as they carry out intense missions, dodge dangerous enemies and navigate their way through a futuristic world. In addition, the game contains new storylines and environments that movie-goers will not see in theaters. WALL •E also features movie voice talent, including Jeff Garlin (Curb Your Enthusiasm) and Academy Award winning sound designer Ben Burtt.
THQ ’s long-running and successful relationship with Disney/Pixar has achieved shipments of more than 35 million units worldwide. The launch of WALL •E marks the second installment in the company ’s well-established and successful association with Disney/Pixar, which includes rights to create games based on four newly created Disney/Pixar film properties. Last year ’s Ratatouille video game was the first property released by THQ under this agreement and was a top performing kids title in 2007.WALL•E will also be made available worldwide in more than 69 countries including UK, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, Japan and Australia over the coming months. The game is rated E for everyone and is now available for the suggested retail price of $19.99.
About the WALL•E Movie:
What if mankind had to leave Earth, and somebody forgot to turn the last robot off?
After hundreds of lonely years of doing what he was built for, WALL•E (short for Waste Allocation Load Lifter Earth-Class) discovers a new purpose in life (besides collecting knick-knacks) when he meets a sleek search robot named EVE. EVE comes to realize that WALL•E has inadvertently stumbled upon the key to the planet ’s future, and races back to space to report her findings to the humans (who have been eagerly awaiting word that it is safe to return home). Meanwhile, WALL•E chases EVE across the galaxy and sets into motion one of the most exciting and imaginative comedy adventures ever brought to the big screen.
Joining WALL•E on his fantastic journey across a universe of never-before-imagined visions of the future, is a hilarious cast of characters including a pet cockroach, and a heroic team of malfunctioning misfit robots.
