Wreck-It Ralph game hitting Wii, DS, and 3DS

Activision and Disney Interactive collaborating on arcade-style side-scroller for Nintendo platforms; Wii version to feature co-op with Ralph and Felix.

by

Disney's upcoming video-game-themed animated feature film Wreck-It Ralph will be spun into a "classic, arcade-style side-scroller," much like the fictional game it is based on, publisher Activision announced today. In partnership with Disney Interactive, the Call of Duty company will release a Wreck-It Ralph game this fall alongside the film for the Wii, DS, and 3DS.

The Wreck-It Ralph game is coming only to Nintendo platforms.

The game is a "story extension" to the feature film, picking up where the movie leaves off. Wreck-It Ralph is being billed as a game that will "inspire a whole new generation of young gamers" and has players fighting off a Cy-Bug invasion. Throughout the game, players will use Ralph's strength to defeat the enemies, while also taking on the role of Fix-It Felix to repair the damage.

The Wii version of Wreck-It Ralph features co-op, where two players can work together and switch between Ralph and Felix to solve the game's puzzles and collect "Hero Medals."

As for the film, Wreck-It Ralph follows the titular Ralph, a villain in a retro arcade game. After decades of coming out on the losing end, Ralph decides he's fed up with being hated for doing his job and quits. He takes off to explore other gameworlds, coming across a variety of gaming icons along the way.

The film was directed by Rich Moore (The Simpsons, Futurama) and stars John C. Reilly (Step Brothers) as Ralph, Sarah Silverman (Jesus is Magic), Jane Lynch (Glee), and Jack McBrayer (30 Rock). It will hit theaters this November in Real 3D.

I already knew that it wouldn't come on PS3 or 360 since the film does have Nintnedo charcters in

Oh, I nearly forgot about this new Pixar movie! It looks like a fun parody of the Donkey Kong arcade game, or something similar.

The movie looks like it'll be fun but I think people unfamiliar with videogames won't really understand the gags. The games will most likely be just more movie cash-ins too.

If only this was by the activision that used to care about games outside of call of duty. Why isn't Nintendo making this one them selves?

Ok so this game is most likely going to suck but the movie looks awesome.

I get a feeling this game will be worse than the fake arcade game it's representing from the movie.

If they would stick with making the actual arcade game fully fleshed out, I would be interested (IE 8-bit characters, simplistic gameplay, etc).  The game seems to be along the lines of Rampage (I kinda miss that series).

Nintendo fans are pumped for some movie-tie shovelware, meanwhile for gamers it's boring old Monday. :|

The movie seems good, if it's anything close to Toy Story I'm going to love it.....

A game? wasn't the trailer for the film just shown at E3?????????

Oh, it's made by Activision.....I guess we're okay because nobody's going to play it unless it's COD lol

The film seems nice, but the game forget. Why?

Reason:

1° its made by activision

2°moive and game tie in, its a ridiculous and offensive way to PR a film, and another way to keep milking money from the gamer.

3° games based on movies tends to suck's 90% of time.

I will definitely take my daughter to see this movie.  I will also definitely NOT buy this movie tie-in game.

The fact it's a sidescroller reeks of cash-in , it's not that there aren't good sidescrollers out there , but when it's a licensed title like this it just shows how it will be thrown together to get kids to want to get it to play before the movie.Call me cynical , but my expectations aren't very high.

The fact that I saw Bowser and Dr. Eggman (Robotnik) in the trailer caught my interest.

 @paperwarior17 Yeah, but the developers cared about the project back then. The success of Spiderman 2 has yet to be replicated. *crossing fingers that Amazing Spiderman will change that.*

Hahahahaha, this cannot be a real comment. No wonder some people I've met say they are glad they're not gamers, when they see stuff like this online.

 

"Gamer" is not an ethnicity or a social position.
