While THQ has said it is trying to focus more on creating and building its own stable of wholly owned franchises, the publisher still banks heavily on a handful of lucrative licenses from the likes of WWE and Nickelodeon. Today, the publisher offered some details on the next project for another of its high-profile licenses, Disney's Pixar animation studio.

THQ has confirmed that its gaming adaptation of the upcoming Wall-E will arrive on "all major gaming systems," including the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation Portable, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2, PC, Mac, and mobile phones. The primary developer on the games will be internal THQ shop Heavy Iron Studios, which handled other THQ-Pixar collaborations, such as The Incredibles and Ratatouille.

Wall-E is set to arrive in theaters June 27. THQ's games based on the film are expected sometime this summer.
