Activision And Disney Planning Wreck-It Ralph Game
Coming Soon reports that Activision and Disney Interactive plan to produce and distribute a game based on the film Wreck-It Ralph.
The game will serve as an extension of the story in the film, which will be released on November 2. It will be a arcade-style side scroller with Ralph trying to prove he can be a hero, after appearing as a villain in a game. The game will be released in the fall for the Wii, Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo DS.
David Oxford, the Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing, said: “Wreck-It Ralph, as a brand entity, is perfectly suited for video game stardom. With the fantastic characters and creative atmosphere envisioned by Walt Disney Animation Studios, we know fans are going to love seeing their newfound favorite characters embark on an all-new side scrolling adventure.“
Here’s a synopsis of the film, directed by Rich Moore (The Simpsons, Futurama): The film chronicles the journey of Ralph, the bad guy in an arcade game who sets out to prove he can be the hero after all. However, Ralph mistakenly reverts to his clumsy nature and “wrecks” everything once again, unleashing a deadly enemy threat onto his video game neighbors.
The movie features the voice cast of John C. Reilly, Sarah Silverman, Jack McBrayer and Jane Lynch.
Here’s a synopsis for the game: The game picks up where the movie leaves off as Ralph partners with Fix-It Felix and sets out to save their friends and home from a huge Cy-Bug invasion. Pounding through all-new levels in the “Wreck-It Ralph” universe, like Sugar Rush, Hero’s Duty, and Fix-It Felix, Jr., players will have to use Ralph’s destructive strength to beat by the Cy-Bugs, while switching back to Felix to repair the damage.
Players will be able to have both a story campaign and two-player co-op. They can switch between the two characters to solve puzzles and collect “Hero Medals.”
