Hollywood based publisher Brash Entertainment has announced that it has acquired the license to forthcoming Universal Pictures book adaptation The Tale of Despereaux
, a fairy-tale film about a chivalrous mouse.
Brash says the game will be released for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, the Wii, and the PC in conjunction with the film, which is due to debut on December 19th of this year.
The company says the game will follow and extend the storyline of the film, with "adventures spanning from the magical kitchen and colorful rooms of the castle to the dark dungeons of the rat lairs."
Brash says the game will feature "an introductory training mode, mouse-centric unique abilities, upgradeable skills and objects," as titular Despereaux faces "animal enemies and human foes on his quest to save Princess Pea."
Said Brash CEO Mitch Davis, “Whether charmed by the book or newly introduced to the characters via the film, children of all ages can expand on their love for Despereaux with this title. We’re excited and proud to be translating this classic into an exciting, engaging and enriching game.”
