The upcoming Tim Burton/Disney film Alice in Wonderland will be joined by a video game adaptation. No, American McGee isn't making this one.
In Wonderland, Alice and her friends (Mad Hatter, March Hare, Cheshire Cat and White Rabbit) must defeat the Red Queen and Jabberwocky. Wait, you can fight Jabberwocky? I thought "Jabberwocky" was a poem. Man, I need to read that book (or just, you know, see the movie).
The game will appear in slightly different forms on the DS, Wii, PC, iPhone, and iPod Touch. It's kind of tough to summarize the gameplay for each version without actually being able to see it in action so here's the exact descriptions from the press release:
The Wii and PC versions follow the film’s epic storyline and introduce new fiction and locations. With an upgradeable combat system, players collect “impossible ideas” to replay levels and unlock Underland’s secrets. Players must carefully select the supporting characters and their abilities to defeat the numerous enemies set forth by the Red Queen and her army of cards, destroy the Jabberwocky and restore Underland back into Wonderland.
The Wii, PC, and DS versions will be released the same week as the film, which hits theaters on March 5th, 2010. The mobile version, which will also be released for Java/Brew, Android and RIM phones, is due in February. Disney Interactive is developing the mobile game while other versions are being handled by French developer Étranges Libellules, the folks behind the console versions of The Legend of Spyro: Dawn of the Dragon.
