New Besson Movie Tie-In

Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard is a new game that will part of a tie-in with a new movie by French director Luc Besson.

Based on the upcoming movie directed by Luc Besson, the Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard video game is a cooperative party-game that will be released for the PS3, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS and PC gaming consoles.

Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard is inspired by the second movie of the trilogy Arthur and the Minimoys. As in the movie, loyalty and mutual aid are the key for victory and success.

There are 30 different mini-games based on cooperation – players don’t compete against each other, but have to work together to reach the highest possible score and progress to new challenges.

Each of the mini-games is based on a specific scene of the movie Arthur and the Revenge of Maltazard.

Each player will be able to embody his/her favourite Minimoy. Max and Maltazard will be the game masters, Max cheering and helping the players when Maltazard will try to put obstacles in their way.

On the PS3, it is the first up-to-4-players party-game that will be entirely playable with the Sisaxis controller.

The Wii version includes mini-games playable with the Wii Balance Board.

The Nintendo DS version features an exclusive mode named “Pinpin Village”. In this mode, players collect plans and Koolomasai money all along the solo adventure, then build their very own village and share their discoveries with their friends.

The game will be available at the end of the year
