THQ has announced that a number of video games based on DreamWorks’ upcoming feature film Megamind, are currently in development for the Xbox 360, PS3, PSP, Wii and DS. The games are scheduled to release in conjunction of the film’s release on November 5th 2010.
The video games will extend the film’s supervillain-turned-superhero storyline with new characters, environments and twists, giving players the chance to experience the comical and over-the-top adventures of the Megamind universe right in their own living room. The PS3 game will deliver a social and interactive experience with two-player cooperative play and the PSP game will present players with an entertaining, on-the-go, solo-style functionality. The games will also feature the voice of actor Jonah Hill who will reprise his role from the film.
PS3: In this two-player cooperative action-adventure game, a sudden crime wave has hit the city, calling Megamind into action. Taking the role of Megamind players must defend the city after his untested and unstable inventions are stolen by a group of new enemies called “The Doom Syndicate”. Players will have to operate a variety of Mega-Gadgets, including Tesla Gloves, the Battlesuit and Sticky Boots, as well as build ingenious inventions such as the Mega Essence Tracker and the Bio Essence Neutralizer. In addition there are six side mission mini-games and cooperative play with one of Megamind’s trusty Brainbots.
PSP: In this on-the-go adventure game, players set out as Megamind, using an arsenal of blasters to smash and blast their way through enemies. Players can switch blasters on a whim in order to put an end to the city’s crime wave.
