Representatives from Gamecock have announced that Hail To The Chimp
, the 'politically charged party game' from Wideload (Stubbs The Zombie
) will be coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in Spring 2008.
Gamecock says the game "begins after the Lion is deposed as King following a series of embarrassing scandals," with the kingdom's subsequent attempt at democracy devolving into a "chaotic multiplayer free-for-all."
The game will see ten animals competing to become the next king, forming and breaking alliances with rivals to gain the upper hand. The title will included multiple game types and arenas, that will, says the publisher, "keep the action flowing nonstop as the shifting loyalties, truces and vendettas build up to epic proportions."
Said Gamecock console chief Rick Stults, "No one has attempted to bring an over-the-top party game like Hail To The Chimp
to next-gen consoles, much less one with biting political satire. Keeping with its reputation, Wideload is going to give gamers something truly original."
