Astro Boy Video Game to Coincide with Upcoming Movie
D3Publisher today announced that it will bring Astro Boy to Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, and the PSP. Based on the upcoming feature film which itself is inspired by one of the most beloved characters of all time, Astro Boy will allow players to become Astro Boy, a young boy robot with incredible powers. Astro Boy is slated to ship worldwide this fall to coincide with the North American and international release of the movie in October 2009.
“We are confident that the Astro Boy: The Video Game will be a faithful adaption of the movie by successfully blending action gameplay with immersive storytelling,” said Alison Quirion, vice president of marketing, D3Publisher. “Players of all ages will interact with the much-loved characters from the movie and square off against powerful foes from the movie for a rock solid gameplay experience from start to finish.”
