Ubisoft Unleashes King Kong

Toronto, CANADA – November 22, 2005 – Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that its critically-acclaimed game of the year contender, Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie, launched today in North America – rated “T” for Teen. The game, based on Universal Pictures’ December 14 release, King Kong, from three-time Academy Award® winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), is positioned to be the top-selling title for the holiday season. Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie is available for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft ($74.99), Xbox® video game system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™ system, Windows® PC, and Nintendo DS™. Kong: The 8th Wonder of the World™ (rated E10+) is available for the Game Boy® Advance system. The PSP™ (PlayStation®Portable) system version will launch in mid-December. “Today is a monumental day for Ubisoft, as we celebrate the biggest launch in company history with Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie,” said Laurent Detoc, president of Ubisoft North America. “We’re extremely proud to have worked so closely with Peter Jackson and Wingnut Films to deliver a critically acclaimed game that sets a new benchmark for games based on movies.” The King Kong Collaboration: Michel Ancel, creative director at Ubisoft – regarded as one of the top innovative minds in the video game industry – and his team at Ubisoft’s Montpellier (France) studio worked with Peter Jackson and Wingnut Films to capture the King Kong movie dynamics through a unique video game experience. “It was an absolute pleasure working with Ubisoft on the video game,” Peter Jackson said. “Being able to collaborate closely together from day one was of utmost importance, which is why we gave Ubisoft unlimited access to every creative aspect of our film production. We really wanted the game and the film to be part of the same universe.” “We were amazed by Peter Jackson’s creativity and what he brought to the project,” Michel Ancel said. “Peter Jackson’s King Kong: The Official Game of the Movie is a creation that closely follows the storyline of the movie, yet as video games have the innate ability to do, pushes the emotional tension of the film to even greater depths. Players will experience unprecedented dual gameplay within a movie-licensed game that alternates between Jack Driscoll in first-person and as King Kong in third-person. These contrasting perspectives will immerse players in a journey that features epic battles, tough choices and a dynamic experience within the visually stunning environment of Skull Island.”
