EA wrangling up Rango in March

Publisher teams with Paramount Digital Entertainment, A2M for game tie-in to Johnny Depp-voiced animated Western on 360, PS3, Wii, and DS.

Artificial Mind & Movement doesn't limit itself to one side of the Entertainment Software Rating Board's spectrum. On the more risque side, the Canadian studio has released such wares as Wet and Naughty Bear, while its family-friendly offerings include MySims Racing and Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings. The company's next project will lean toward the latter, as EA announced today that it will distribute the Paramount Digital Entertainment-published and A2M-developed game tie-in for Paramount Pictures' animated feature Rango.

Rango's survival instinct isn't the best.

Rango The Video Game will be released in tandem with the Johnny Depp-voiced animated Western in March 2011 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, and DS. Like its film inspiration, the action adventure game will follow the travails of its titular out-of-his-element lizard. The game will be set in the Wild West town of Dirt, and gamers will find themselves meeting quirky characters, as well as engaging in shoot-outs and other old-timey activities.

Rango is the first animated feature from Paramount Pictures. EA confirmed for GameSpot that Depp will not be reprising his role as Rango for the game.

I can't believe A2M are still being allowed to make games after mediocre crap like Wet and Naughty Bear.

Well going by their track record (the studio) and limited appeal of this game, it seems EA is just wasting more money
