Paramount Pictures' nostalgia-inducing musical Grease and games go together like ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong, or so 505 Games would have you believe. The publisher today announced the developers for its upcoming Wii and DS adaptations of the hit 1978 John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John film, saying Zoe Mode will handle the console version with Big Head Games taking the portable duties.
Zoe Mode is best known for its work on Sony's successful Singstar series. However, the studio has also produced a number of other notable games, including Konami's Rock Revolution and Sega's Crush. Big Head Games has a shorter development history than Zoe Mode, specializing primarily in iPhone and other mobile games. However, the studio (formed by ex-8bit Games directors) does list the PlayStation 3 puzzle Elefunk among its accomplishments and is working on PSP Mini adaptations of its iPhone titles The Terminator and Retro - Cave Shooter.
In the Grease games, players will sing and dance with Danny Zuko, Sandy Olsson, and the rest of the T-Birds and Pink Ladies. According to Paramount, the game will "take full advantage of Nintendo Wii's motion-sensing controls and microphone and the DS's touch screen."
