Narnia chronicled 2 million times
Game based on book-based blockbuster is biggest effort from BVG; film scheduled to hit theaters at end of week.
Buena Vista Games, the multimedia arm of The Walt Disney Company, today announced that it has shipped its 2 millionth unit of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The multiplatform game, released in mid-November on the PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, DS, Game Boy Advance, and PC, is the biggest self-published title to date from BVG, formerly known as Disney Interactive.
Narnia is based on the upcoming film of the same name, which is a silver-screen adaptation of C.S. Lewis' popular fantasy book. Players assume the role of the story's quartet of heroes--Peter, Edmund, Susan, and Lucy--and take on the wicked White Witch and her army of mythological beasts.
Demand for the game may increase over the weekend, as the Walt Disney Pictures film opens this Friday. The movie was cowritten and directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek), and stars Tilda Swinton (Constantine, The Beach) and Jim Broadbent (Gangs of New York).
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe was developed by Traveller's Tales and retails for $49.99 on the Xbox, PS2, and GameCube, and $39.99 on the PC, all of which are rated T for Teen. The E10+ for Everyone 10 and Older-rated DS version sells for $34.99, and the E for Everyone-rated Game Boy Advance version sells for $29.99.
