IGOR THE GAME SHIPS FOR NDS, WII
AND PC IN NORTH AMERICA
Play-Out Your Favorite Igor
Moments from the Upcoming Animated Feature Film Which Hits Theaters Tomorrow
SouthPeak Games, in conjunction with
Legacy Interactive, announced today that Igor The Game, based on the animated
feature from Exodus Film Group and MGM Studios, has shipped to retail stores in
North America. The game brings all of the elements of the film into the living
room, and is now available on Nintendo DS™, Wii™ and PC.
A hilarious twist on the classic
monster movie, Igor tells the story of one Igor who’s sick of being a lowly lab
assistant with a Yes Masters’ degree and dreams of becoming a scientist. When
his cruel master kicks the bucket a week before the annual Evil Science Fair,
Igor finally gets his chance.
Featuring the voice talents of John
Cusack, Steve Buscemi, John Cleese, Jennifer Coolidge, Arsenio Hall, Sean Hayes,
Eddie Izzard, Jay Leno, James Lipton, Molly Shannon and Christian Slater, Igor
is the must-see family comedy of the fall.
In the PC and Wii versions of the
game, players choose one of four main characters – Igor, Eva, Scamper or Brain –
and play through an adventure on their own or, on Wii, cooperatively with four
people. Many of the challenges, locations and enemies in the game will be
instantly recognizable for fans of the feature film.
The Nintendo DS version emphasizes a
puzzle style gameplay where players perform movement combinations and fight
enemies using the unique control methods. The Nintendo DS version also features
a monster creation feature, and players can use their custom built monstrosities
to take on puzzles or fight against the creations of other mad scientists.
“Igor is a wonderful film that has
translated into a fun game for the whole family,” said Ariella Lehrer, President
of Legacy Interactive. “Everyone has done a tremendous job creating a game that
captures the essence of the film while also being a great pick up and play
interactive experience.” Igor The Game is available now. For
