Tintin Movie To Get Game

Ubisoft has been chosen to create game for Tintin franchise

When the names Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg are mentioned in the same sentence you know it has to be big. So when both directors-cum-producers attached their name to the Tintin comic books movie, you can bet your bottom dollar gaming publishers were rubbing their hands in anticipation.

Turns out Ubisoft is the company with the golden touch as Paramount has chosen the company to develop a video game based on the upcoming film “Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn.” The video game is expected to launch simultaneously with the film adaptation.
“Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn” will be released in the US on December 23, 2011 and internationally in late October and early November 2011.

The film, distributed by Paramount Pictures and Sony Pictures Entertainment, utilises state-of-the-art, next-generation performance capture. Ubisoft’s Montpellier studio will work with director and producer Steven Spielberg, producers Peter Jackson and Kathleen Kennedy, to develop a unique game that is closely tied to the upcoming motion picture.
