- Today SEGA and Pyro Studios announced their plan to bring the animated movie Planet 51 to game consoles.
The Planet 51 game will be available in Winter 2009 for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Wii system, PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system and the Nintendo DS portable handheld system.
Press Release: February 25, 2009 - SEGA Europe, Ltd., SEGA of America, Inc., and Madrid-based Pyro Studios today announced a partnership to create a game based on its upcoming animated film, Planet 51.
Planet 51 is a galactic sized alien adventure comedy from the writer of "Shrek" and "Shrek 2", which revolves around American astronaut Captain Charles "Chuck" Baker who lands on Planet 51, thinking he's the first person to step foot on it.
To his surprise, he finds that this planet is inhabited by little green people who are happily living in a white picket fence world reminiscent of a cheerfully innocent American town circa 1950, and whose only fear is that it will be overrun by alien invaders... like Chuck! With the help of his robot companion "Rover" and his new friend Lem, Chuck must navigate his way through the dazzling, but bewildering, landscape of Planet 51 in order to escape becoming a permanent part of the Planet 51 Alien Invaders Space Museum....
