The Godfather Ships to Stores

Electronic Arts today announced The Godfather The Game has shipped and is on store shelves today in North America and March 24th in Europe. Gamers worldwide can step into the Don’s dangerous world of intimidation and negotiation via their PlayStation 2, Xbox or PC. Developed by EA, the highly-anticipated open-world videogame is based on the critically-acclaimed book by Mario Puzo and the classic film by Paramount Pictures through a strategic licensing relationship with Viacom Consumer Products. A Limited Edition for the Xbox and PlayStation 2, featuring behind the scenes content including footage from voice over sessions with James Caan and Robert Duvall, also is available in stores. The Godfather The Game for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation Portable will be available later in 2006.

EA’s The Godfather The Game puts the player at the center of one of the world’s most revered stories. In the role of a young man just entering the Corleone family, you create your own mob character and choose which style to work your way to the top – Il Capo Tutto di Capi. The game goes beyond the films and book to actually create the living world of The Godfather fiction throughout 1940s-50s New York City. Relive classic moments from the fiction and experience open-world gameplay alongside unforgettable characters from the film such as Luca Brasi, Sonny, Tom Hagan, and of course, Don Vito Corleone himself. Actors from the film, including Marlon Brando, James Caan and Robert Duvall, reprised their roles lending their voices to the game.
