The charming children’s story has recently turned heads with a theatrical release, and now, Blast! Entertainment has announced they’ve acquired the rights to develop a game based on Charlotte’s Web. The movie releases today, and Blast! is creating the game for the PS2.
All of your favorite characters will make an appearance, and the developers are making it so the player can – at one point or another – control all of them. They’ve said it would be “quick and simple,” exactly the way a good kid’s game should be, but at the same time, the title will feature some cool exploration and puzzle solving.
“Signing Charlott’e Web is a major coup for us and we’ll be maximizing the massive publicity that will surround the film launch. This release firmly places Blast! on the map as the leading value PS2 publisher across Europe and we plan to announce further high profile signings throughout 2007,” said Sean Brennan of Blast! Entertainment.
We very much like the idea of playing as the ol’ familiar characters in the book (Templeton the Rat, along with Wilbur and Charlotte should be fun), so Charlotte’s Web should prove to be a worthwhile game for fans of the novel and movie. The game is loosely scheduled for March in Europe, but there is no release date for North America yet.
