is prepping new games based on Pixar/Disney’s next joint effort, “The Incredibles.” Two new games will be available and are expected to be released when The Incredibles hits movies theaters this fall. One title, an action game, will be released simultaneously on Mac, PC and game consoles, while the other is a mini-game aimed at younger audiences on the Mac and PC.
Both games follow the adventures of The Incredibles, a family of undercover superheroes living in suburbia, who are called into action to save the world from nefarious foes. The movie is coming out for the holiday 2004 season, and THQ expects to have both games in stores shortly before the film is released.
The action game is set in third-person perspective; players guide the different main characters from the film through a series of levels as they exploit each superhero’s unique powers and capabilities to suit the environment and the tasks necessary to complete each level. Heavy Iron Studios is doing the game’s original development, and Beenox Studios is handling the PC and Mac conversion. Look for more details to be available leading up to the games’ and movie’s release.
