MUMBAI: Sierra Entertainment is developing the video game of Ice Age 2 The Meltdown, based on the animated film from 20th Century Fox for Nintendo’s Wii console and will be available in the US later this year.
Ice Age 2 The Meltdown for Wii will utilize the full capability of Wii and its unique controller.
“We are excited to bring such an entertaining game to such an innovative platform. Ice Age fans and gamers of all ages will without a doubt enjoy embarking on this new adventure, within the game itself and as part of the truly unique Wii experience Nintendo is bringing to consumers,” said Vivendi Games chief strategy and marketing officer Cindy Cook.
Fox Licensing and Merchandising executive vice president Elie Dekel added, “Ice Age is an amazing franchise and the perfect fit for Nintendo’s next generation platform. Ice Age 2 promises to utilize the Wii’s specs to the fullest capacity for a great gaming experience. Thanks to the cooperation of much of the voice talent from the film, fans will get to explore a true extension of one of the year’s biggest blockbusters.”
The Ice Age is ending and the subzero heroes return in this action adventure video game set in a melting paradise of water parks, geysers and tar pits. Manny the Mammoth, Sid the Sloth and Diego the Sabre-Toothed Tiger are back and realize that the melting glaciers will soon flood their valley. Gamers will be able to play as their favorite characters from the film, along with everyone’s favorite sabre-toothed squirrel, Scrat, and embark on a mission across an increasingly dangerous landscape towards their salvation from a huge glacial dam that is about to break, threatening to flood the entire valley.
Ice Age 2 The Meltdown video game is currently available in the US for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo DS, Game Boy Advance and PC.
