News: And it's coming to the DS, PC, PS2, PS3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360.
Pixar's latest movie, Up, is coming to theaters on May 29. And coming with it is the requisite video game adaptation from THQ. Developed by Heavy Iron Studios (the team behind nearly all of THQ's Pixar game adaptations), Up will be coming to the DS, PC, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, PSP, Wii and Xbox 360 this May to coincide with the release of the movie.
Up the game will follow along closely with the storyline from Up the movie:
The Up video game will take players on an exotic adventure with 78-year-old balloon salesman Carl Fredricksen and his young sidekick, Wilderness Explorer Russell, as they set off on a wild 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 exciting, 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.
A demo of the PC version is currently available to download at the game's official site, UpVideoGame.com.
We'll have more soon.
