Star Trek Movie Cast Joins Game

NAMCO BANDAI announces actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto will lend their voices to the roles of Kirk and Spock the upcoming Star Trek video game, and other actors from J.J. Abrams' film Star Trek reboot will also voice their characters in the game. On a related note, the Star Trek game website is now online. Here's the announcement:

Paramount Pictures and leading video game publisher and developer NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. today announced that actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto who starred as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock in producer and director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (2009) film reboot, will reprise their roles in the Star Trek™ video game. The highly anticipated co-op game is set to release in early 2013 on Xbox 360®video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC.

“We are thrilled to have these incredible actors, lending their voice to the legendary characters of Kirk and Spock in the video game realm,” said LeeAnne Stables, Paramount Pictures’ President of Consumer Products and head of the studio’s video game unit. “Players are in for a truly authentic experience with the combination of talent we have assembled bringing this action adventure game to life.”

In addition to Pine and Quinto, other actors from the 2009 film are depicted in the game including actress Zoe Saldana, in the role of Lieutenant Uhura, Simon Pegg as the benevolent Scotty, Karl Urban as the beloved Dr. “Bones” McCoy, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin as Chekov.

“There are certain elements at the core of Star Trek – insurmountable odds, exploration, villains like the Gorn and heroes like Kirk and Spock,” said Carlson Choi, VP of Marketing and NAMCO BANDAI Games America Inc. “Our goal is to pull gamers as deep into the Star Trek universe as possible and an integral part of that is the talent that make these characters their own."

The game’s original story is being penned by BAFTA award winner and God of War writer Marianne Krawczyk in collaboration with Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman, writers and producers for the upcoming Star Trek film. Built from the ground up as the ultimate co-op experience, the Star Trek video game lets players control both Kirk and Spock in a sweeping journey of epic proportions across unexplored planets and enemy battleships with the latest 23rd century weapons and gear. Kirk and Spock’s complementary personalities result in the most fully realized and varied co-op experiences for this console generation.

Under a license from CBS Consumer Products, Star Trek is being developed by Ontario-based developer Digital Extremes (Bioshock 2, Unreal Tournament, Dark Sector, The Darkness II) with production being overseen by Brian Miller, Senior Vice President at Paramount Pictures and game producer.

If its a beatem up game, Im all for it, it even fits with the canon. Kirk was always a bad ass streetfighter.
