6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 1 comment
THQ has announced its plans to bring the Up video game, based on the upcoming Disney/Pixar film, to all major systems worldwide beginning in spring 2009. Up is currently in development across seven game systems, including Mac, Windows, Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, Playstation 2, and PSP. Development for the Up video game is being led by THQ’s Heavy Iron Studios, the same creative team responsible for the video games based on Ratatouille and WALL•E.
The Up video game will take players on an adventure with Carl Fredricksen and his young sidekick, Wilderness Explorer Russell, as they set off on a journey through the undiscovered jungles of South America. Players will be able to experience all four main characters from the movie -- Carl, Russell, Dug the lovable dog or Kevin the prehistoric bird -- while playing as a single-player or with a friend cooperatively throughout the entire game. Players will encounter new environments as they navigate through treacherous jungle terrains, battle dangerous creatures, and trek the slippery slopes of the Amazonian Tepuis. In addition, the game also features multi-player game modes, including an epic level that will allow up to four players to compete in aerial combat.
About the Up Movie:
From Disney•Pixar comes “Up,” a comedy adventure about 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen, who finally fulfills his lifelong dream of a great adventure when he ties thousands of balloons to his house and flies away to the wilds of South America. But he discovers all too late that his biggest nightmare has stowed away on the trip: an overly optimistic 8-year-old Wilderness Explorer named Russell. From the Academy Award®-nominated director Peter Docter (Monsters, Inc.), Disney•Pixar’s Up invites film goers on a hilarious journey into a lost world, with the least likely duo on Earth. Up will be presented in Disney Digital 3-D in select theatres. The film is due for release on May 29, 2009.For more information about the game click over to the link listed below.
