Mejesco Revives Jaws

Majesco has announced that they have acquired the interactive entertainment rights to Universal Pictures’ and Steven Spielberg’s Jaws. The game, which will presumably carry the same name, is in development at Appaloosa and is scheduled to ship in summer 2005 to coincide with the 30th anniversary of the film’s theatrical release. "Without a doubt, Jaws is one of the most revered classics of all time. The film’s mixture of action, adventure and suspense terrified the masses," said Jesse Sutton, chief executive officer of Majesco. "The game will capture that same action and excitement as the movie, but this time, the shark enjoys some pay-back." "Jaws was an instant hit, a phenomenon, acclaimed by critics and audiences alike," said Bill Kispert, vice president of Interactive at Universal Studios Consumer Products Group. "It was an adrenaline-charged experience. With Jaws, the game, we want to give players that same adrenaline rush as they control the power and the fury of a Great White." The game will allow players to assume the role of a Great White shark that is driven to a predacious frenzy by the sonic emanations of underwater oil drilling equipment. In order to defend their underwater territory, players undertake a campaign to drive the raiders away while simultaneously solving a series of action-based puzzles designed to thwart the player. Jaws will feature Appaloosa’s advanced game engine that is capable of producing stunning underwater visuals and realistic physics that will enable the Great White to perform a variety of leaping, twisting assaults, thus rendering havens such as dive platforms and boats vulnerable to attack. We’ll hope to learn more about Jaws in the near future as the game is scheduled for release on the PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC during Summer 2005. For now, take a bite out of the Majesco website for all the latest on Jaws.
