Publisher THQ has announced that it will release Journey To The Center Of The Earth 3-D
, originally a Jules Verne novel, for the Nintendo DS simultaneously with the Brendan Fraser-starring 3-D film from New Line Cinema this summer.
Billed as “the first ever digital 3-D live action release,” Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D
has actor Brendan Fraser exploring never-before-seen worlds and encountering a variety of unusual creatures while venturing deep beneath the Earth’s surface.
The Nintendo DS title will allow gamers to play as the film’s three main characters in seven different worlds featured in the film, riding dangerous rock slides, navigating an out-of-control mine cart, and rafting across an ancient sea. THQ plans to expand on the movie by also providing mini-games in which players can dig for dinosaur bones and decipher ancient ruins.
Journey to the Center of the Earth 3-D
will open in theaters nationwide on July 11. The Nintendo DS game is expected to shop the stores around the same date.
