THQ has announced a new deal with HBO to develop video games based on the station's original television series The Sopranos. Currently under development, the game is backed by key members of the show's cast who will lend their voices and likenesses, including James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano. The game is scheduled to be released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 this holiday season. "We're excited to work with HBO on creating a game that captures the spirit of the groundbreaking series -- a modern classic that redefines the life of crime genre," said Kelly Flock, executive vice president, Worldwide Publishing, THQ. "The Sopranos has become television legacy for this generation and now fans and gamers can become part of the story and see if they have the muscle and wit to become 'made.'" The game centers on a mob war brewing between Philadelphia's and New Jersey's most powerful families. As the illegitimate son of "Big Pussy," and a soldier in the mob, players are given the opportunity to demonstrate their loyalty to Tony Soprano by earning money on collections, protecting turf through intimidation, and gaining admiration of their family in order to move up in the ranks of the organization.
