THQ today announced that the publisher's lineup of games based on The Incredibles, the latest film from Pixar Animation Studios, has shipped to retail stores nationwide. The Incredibles for the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, Game Boy Advance, and PC/Mac, as well as The Incredibles: When Danger Calls, a PC/Mac title aimed at the younger set, are all available starting today.

Internal THQ group Heavy Iron Studios developed the console versions. Taking the form of a 3D action platform title, the game puts the player into the role of all four members of the Incredibles family, each of whom has his or her own levels that are tuned to his or her special power. For example, Mr. Incredible's levels are filled with mass destruction, while superspeedy son Dash's levels are built around fast action.

The Incredibles: When Danger Calls for the PC/Mac offers younger gamers experiences of their own, with 10 levels full of minigames based on the film's characters, settings, and events. It was developed by Imaginengine. The GBA version is developed by Helixe, and Beenox adapted the console game to the PC/Mac.

The Incredibles, a Walt Disney Pictures presentation of a Pixar film, opens in theaters this weekend. It's the story of a family of ex-superheroes, living undercover, who are called out of retirement. There's the overweight but still spry Mr. Incredible, his wife Elastigirl, and their two children, Dash and Violet.

The console games carry an MSRP of $39.99, while the PC and GBA titles carry an MSRP of $29.99. Each game is rated "E" for Everyone. For more information, check out GameSpot's recent hands-on.
