Sega has confirmed that it is working with developer Edge of Reality (Cipher Complex
) for game console adaptation's of the Marvel Studio's upcoming The Incredible Hulk feature film, with Amaze Entertainment (Spyro: A New Beginning
DS) tapped for the game's handheld versions.
The confirmation follows comments made to Gamasutra in a recent interview
with Edge of Reality's Mark Nau, who noted at the time that he was working on a title with both Sega and Marvel, calling the project a “big opportunity.”
The studio is also working on Cipher Complex
, an upcoming stealth action title expected to be released later this year for both the Xbox 360 and PS3.
The Incredible Hulk will debut in theaters on June 13, 2008, and while few details have been announced so far, a Sega representative did note that the game “will be released in the same timeframe as the film.”
The comic-inspired movie will feature a storyline closely tied to the super hero's comic book roots. The Incredible Hulk, directed by Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2, Unleashed), will star Edward Norton in the lead role as scientist Bruce Banner, who is transformed into Marvel's icon's super hero.
