X3 Movie Tie-In Announced

Activision has announced X-Men The Official Movie Game (working title) for the PS2, Nintendo Game Cube, Xbox, Xbox 360, Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance. The game is due to be released in May to coincide with the movies release.

Co-written by Zak Penn, the screenwriter of movies X2 X-Men United and X-Men The Last Stand, and legendary comic book writer Chris Claremont, X-Men The Official Movie Game (working title) immerses players in an original storyline that provides the back-story for the upcoming X-Men The Last Stand feature film. For the first time ever, the game enables players to truly command the powers of popular characters from the X-Men movie universe by allowing players to assume the roles of Wolverine, Nightcrawler, and Iceman as they wield and upgrade their signature powers and maneuver through unique environments designed to showcase their Super Hero abilities. Assisted by other X-Men characters, players will use an advanced control scheme to master and control the characters like never before as they unleash Wolverine’s combat rage, experience Nightcrawler’s acrobatics and teleportation powers, and glide through the air on Iceman’s ice slide.
