EA, Namco bring movie titles to Europe
Curious George and The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift to be released in second half of 2006.
Electronic Arts and Namco Bandai have announced a deal to copublish two games based on Universal Pictures movies in Europe. Curious George will be available in October 2006 for the PlayStation 2 and Game Boy Advance and will put players in the shoes of the eponymous monkey. All of the levels will be based on the animated film, and the adventure begins when George follows The Man With the Yellow Hat from the jungle back to the city.
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift will be released in the third quarter of 2006 for the PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable and is set in the Japanese underground drift racing scene. The game will feature extensive vehicle customisation and a "drift" driving model.
