Looney Tunes: Back in Action E3 2003 Preshow Report

The new Looney Tunes game is based on the upcoming film.


The game version of the upcoming Looney Tunes film Back in Action will soon be hitting consoles thanks to Electronic Arts and Warner Bros. Interactive. Back in Action will be a single-player platformer starring both Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck. The squabbling stars have a single goal: They both want to be the first one to find the elusive Blue Monkey Diamond. You'll switch back and forth between the two and use each character's unique skills as you navigate the game's levels, outmaneuver other Looney Tunes characters, and ultimately try to track down the jewel. Bugs' powers include being able to tunnel underground to get to new areas and changing into costumes to slickly get out of trouble. Daffy, on the other hand, is good at being squashed, eaten, or otherwise maimed and still bouncing back.

Back in Action features across six environments taken directly from the movie, including the Area 52 research facility; the Louvre in Paris; Yosemite Sam's Wooden Nickel casino; an Acme spy lab in Antarctica; ruins in an African jungle; and even the Warner Bros. Studios back lot. Daffy and Bugs will have access to a number of gadgets and gizmos from the famous Acme company, including the Tornado Kit, Essence of Road Runner, Acme Electro Magnet, and Eggbert's Eggs.

Looney Tunes: Back in Action is scheduled for release this fall on the PlayStation 2, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance. We'll bring you more on the game as it becomes available.
