Ubisoft today announced the official launch for the video game based on Columbia Pictures’ and Sony Pictures Animation’s 3D CG film, Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. The video game, available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, Wii(TM) system from Nintendo, Nintendo DS(TM) system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and Windows PC, is now available at retail in North America.
Players assume the role of Flint, the hero-inventor of the movie, and immerse themselves in an interactive re-creation of the movie’s exciting and hilarious story. Using Flint’s new and exclusive wacky gadgets to defeat massively mutated food enemies and ultimately to stop the machine that is causing food to rain from the sky, players will run, climb, dodge, melt, punch, slice and dice and puzzle-solve their way through more than 20 levels spread out over 7 different environments taken from the movie; everything from Ice Cream Falls, to Jelly Castle Land! Play single-player, or team up with a friend to play as Flint’s pet monkey Steve, to drop-in/drop-out at anytime, in a hilarious co-op mode! Hurl hamburgers with the “Bigacious Pow punching glove gadget, sling spaghetti with the “Forkamajigger!, or launch burritos in the “Outtasighter vehicle!
The development of Cloudy with a Chance of MeatballsTM video game is the third such collaboration in a successful partnership, with Ubisoft having produced top-selling video games based on Sony Pictures Animation’s, previous animated sensations, Open Season, and Academy Award® nominee for Best Animated Feature, Surf’s Up. You gotta love the partnership here and while this isn’t a game we might run out and buy, its definitely a great kids game.
Windows PC users can get an early sneak peek of the action adventure game via a just-released downloadable demo. The demo, which can be found on Ubisoft’s online site here (http://cloudyvideogame.us.ubi.com/#/fun-zone), gives Cloudy fans a chance to play as Flint to save his town from a “food-tastrophe, and get a small taste of the full retail version.
