Disney Ships Narnia Games

Disney’s interactive entertainment arm Buena Vista Games yesterday announced new game titles which are being released in conjunction with the movie The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The video games are now available at retail outlets in North America for the PlayStation2 (T for Teen – $49.99), Xbox (T for Teen – $49.99), Nintendo GameCube (T for Teen – $49.99), Nintendo DS (E+10 for Everbody 10 and over – $34.99), Game Boy Advance (E for Everyone – $29.99) and PC (T for Teen – $39.99).

The Chronicles of Narnia video games’ style of play depends upon the platform they are appearing under, Buena Vista Games said. The console and PC versions are action/adventure games featuring 15 levels of combat and puzzle solving game play, with integration of film footage and use of voice talent from the film. Included are numerous unlockable bonus levels and features that reveal secrets about the making of the game. Also, the console and PC versions include a two-player co-op “drop in/drop out” feature in which a second player can join a single-player game already in progress.

The Nintendo DS version is an action/adventure game with role playing game features. It includes 60 maps, utilizes the touch screen for game play options, including managing inventory, conversing with allied creatures, casting spells and controlling one of four possible characters in real-time combat. A wireless multiplayer mode allows up to four people to play simultaneously. The Game Boy Advance version is an action/adventure game that includes 17 levels of game play. Players earn role playing game-based power-ups to help in their quests. The game includes a two-player linked or wireless multiplayer mode.

“‘The Chronicles of Narnia’ is one of The Walt Disney Company’s most highly-anticipated ventures this year,” said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. “The Narnia video game represents collaboration between film making and game development at its best. The game immerses players into the land of Narnia and lets them experience an extensive adventure beyond the epic film.”
