Mumbai: Disney Interactive Studios announced the November 2008 release of video games inspired by the upcoming animation film Bolt from Walt Disney Pictures. Bolt will be available for the Wii, Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, Nintendo DS and Windows-based PC.
The Bolt video game, which is being developed by Avalanche Software, Disney’s Interactive Studios’ family games development studio, takes place in the world of the action-packed television show and offers the opportunity for Bolt and Penny to travel throughout five international locations, including Russia and Italy.
In the game, players take on the heroic personas of the TV star dog, Bolt, and his owner, Penny, from the high-action television series featured within the film. As Bolt, players can use his superpowers, including laser vision and his super-bark, which sends out a sonic blast to devastate opponents, and as Penny, players utilize stealth, hacking skills and a wheel bar, inspired by her scooter seen in the movie, to outwit enemies.
"Bolt uses the film as a springboard, expanding upon the action and dynamic story elements, to provide a fun, challenging experience for gamers," said Disney Interactive Studios senior vice president of global marketing Craig Relyea. "With Bolt, Avalanche Software looks to further its reputation as a premier developer of compelling animated games for a broad audience."
