Ubisoft announces that the various platform editions of King Kong are now
London, UK — November 17th, 2005 — Today Ubisoft announced
that Peter Jackson’s King Kong The Official Game of the Movie, based on
Universal Pictures’ December 14th release, King Kong, from three-time Academy
Award®-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), is now available on
the Sony PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Xbox® video game and
entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo GameCube™ system and Windows® PC.
The Game Boy® Advance title King Kong The Official Game of the Movie is also
available from today.
The King Kong Collaboration:
Michel Ancel, creative director at Ubisoft, regarded as one of the top
innovative minds in the video game industry, and his team at Ubisoft’s
Montpellier (France) studio are working with Peter Jackson and Wingnut Films to
capture the King Kong movie dynamics through a unique video game experience.
"It's an absolute pleasure working with Ubisoft on the video game," Jackson
said. "Being able to collaborate closely together from day one is of utmost
importance, which is why we've given Ubisoft unlimited access to every creative
aspect of our film production. We really want the game and the film to be part
of the same universe."
“We’re amazed by Peter Jackson’s creativity and what he brings to the project,”
Ancel said. “Peter Jackson’s King Kong The Official Game of the Movie is a
creation that closely follows the storyline of the movie yet, as video games
have the innate ability to do, will push the emotional tension of the film to
even greater depths. Players will experience unprecedented dual game play within
a movie-licensed game which alternates between Jack Driscoll in first-person and
as King Kong in third-person. These contrasting perspectives will immerse
players into the journey featuring epic battles, tough choices and a dynamic
experience within the visually stunning environment of Skull Island.”
