We’ve seen countless video game movies—movies based on existing video game titles or characters—and vice versa over the years. But rarely do we see a video game based on a movie about video games.
Disney and Activision Publishing have announced that a video game based on Wreck-It Ralph, the new computer animated feature from Walt Disney Animation Studios, is on the way.
The movie follows an arcade game bad guy named Ralph (John C. Reilly) who decides that he’s sick of being the bad guy, and heads off on an adventure to turn his existence around and become the good guy for once.
Wreck-It Ralph includes numerous familiar video game characters sure to strike a nostalgic chord, many of which can be seen in the movie’s first trailer.
The game version aims to introduce a whole new generation to that classic side-scroller game many of us grew up pumping quarter after quarter into with a modern look and feel. It will be released this fall alongside the movie, which hits theaters on November 2, 2012.
Wreck-It Ralph will be available on the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo 3DS, and Nintendo DS.
