Barnacles to be blistered in movie tie-in.
The comic book hero, Tintin, is set to embark on an exotic adventure on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Windows PC, Nintendo 3DS and Wii later this year.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is an action-packed adventure that takes gamers on a nonstop journey through the world of Tintin; the hero and intrepid reporter from Hergé’s original comic books. Players will rediscover the movie’s enchanting environs including Captain Archibald Haddock’s ship “the Karaboudjan,” Omar Ben Salaad’s Palace and the exotic city of Bagghar and experience many of Tintin’s exciting adventures.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Game is to coincide with the release of the film from director, Steven Spielberg. Chief Executive Officer at Ubisoft, Yves Guillemot, said that it has been exciting to work with renowned filmmakers on the iconic Tintin franchise. “Our development team in Montpellier has worked very closely with the film team to ensure that players will have the chance to recreate the magical moments of the movie and to experience complete immersion into the Tintin universe.”
The single-player campaign will feature various elements adapted from Tintin comic books The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure. Players will be treated to a blend of exploration, puzzles, aerial combat, sword fighting and driving.
In addition, players can work together in special multiplayer maps straight from the moody dreams of Captain Haddock. For the more competitive player, Challenge mode features many opportunities for players to compete with each other for high scores.
