King Kong Is Out!

Today Ubisoft announced that Peter Jackson’s King Kong The Official Game of the Movie, based on Universal Pictures’ December 14th release, King Kong, from three-time Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy), is now available on the Sony PlayStation2, Xbox, Nintendo GameCube and PC. The Game Boy Advance title King Kong The Official Game of the Movie is also available from today.

It’s an absolute pleasure working with Ubisoft on the video game,” Jackson said. “Being able to collaborate closely together from day one is of utmost importance, which is why we’ve given Ubisoft unlimited access to every creative aspect of our film production. We really want the game and the film to be part of the same universe.”

We’re amazed by Peter Jackson’s creativity and what he brings to the project,” Ancel said. “Peter Jackson’s King Kong The Official Game of the Movie is a creation that closely follows the storyline of the movie yet, as video games have the innate ability to do, will push the emotional tension of the film to even greater depths. Players will experience unprecedented dual game play within a movie-licensed game which alternates between Jack Driscoll in first-person and as King Kong in third-person. These contrasting perspectives will immerse players into the journey featuring epic battles, tough choices and a dynamic experience within the visually stunning environment of Skull Island.
