THQ has announced development is currently underway at their Heavy Iron Studios for a game based on Pixar’s upcoming CGI film ‘Ratatouille.’ The game will be available across 11 systems including Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and Nintendo Wii, and be available in stores to time with the film’s release in Summer 2007.
According to THQ, “…players will assume the role of Remy, a young rat whose love for great food puts him at odds with the needs of his family. Fans will be able to relive some of the film’s most thrilling moments and experience the sights, sounds and most importantly, the smells, of Paris a la Remy across a multitude of gaming systems. Players will instantly recognize the storyline, characters and key locations of Ratatouille, as they engage in a series of unique mini-games, cooking challenges and head-to-head multiplayer. Ratatouille will allow players to create culinary masterpieces, evade detection from dangerous and often hungry enemies, and brave the perils of the dinner-rush in this senses-shattering journey to fulfill Remy’s life-long dream of becoming a great chef.”
