Ships Ahoy - King Kong

Ubisoft announces that the various platform editions of King Kong are now available:

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.”

You know when Bungie said that Halo was a sequence of 15 seconds of fun? King Kong is 5 seconds. It's fun, but it grows repetitive quickly.
