Firebrand Games today announce details of their next project, the Nintendo DS video game version of the highly anticipated animated film Planet 51. Here is more info on this upcoming Nintendo DS game:
With a US theatrical release through Sony on Thanksgiving, Planet 51 is the tale of US astronaut Captain Charles ?Chuck? Baker (Dwayne Johnson, The Scorpion King, Be Cool) who lands on Planet 51 thinking he?s the first person to step foot on it. To his surprise, it?s already inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent 1950?s American. The film also features the voices of John Cleese, Gary Oldman and Seann William Scott.
Mark Greenshields, CEO of Firebrand Games, commented ?We have a track history of creating incredibly successful handheld titles and now, with the opportunity to work on a huge film tie-in like Planet 51, Firebrand is taking our core skill of producing triple-A driving titles into a wider arena.? He continued ?Planet 51 is a game that has many diverse elements to it and we?re committed to turning the game into as big a success as the movie is going to be. With a strong storyline and some amazing visuals we?re sure that Planet 51 is going to be a massive hit on the DS.?
Planet 51 The Game is being released in the western markets by SEGA from November 2009.
