Disney Unleashes the Superbark with New Bolt Video Games

Bolt Games Inspired by Upcoming Animated Feature Film To Arrive On Multiple Platforms This Holiday

Disney Interactive Studios announced today the November 2008 release of video games inspired by the upcoming, original feature animation film “Bolt” from Walt Disney Pictures. Bolt will be available for the Wii, Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3, PlayStation 2, Nintendo DS and Windows-based PC.

The latest computer animated film from Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Bolt” tells the story of a canine TV star that is inadvertently shipped from Hollywood to New York City, where he begins a cross-country adventure home and makes the surprising discovery that the super powers he thought he had don’t work in the real world. 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 superbark, which sends out a sonic blast to devastate opponents, and as Penny, players utilize stealth, hacking skills and a wheelbar, 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 Craig Relyea, senior vice president of global marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “With Bolt, Avalanche Software looks to further its reputation as a premier developer of compelling animated games for a broad audience.”

The Nintendo DS version of the game will include competitive and co-op multiplayer, mini games as well as DGamer, Disney Interactive Studios’ innovative new technology that provides a fun, connected game community for Disney video game fans. With DGamer, players earn content, interact and chat with others on Nintendo DS through the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection or on a computer through the Disney.com website. The Nintendo DS game is being developed by Altron.
