The games will be released on Nintendo DS and Sony PSP, and will feature characters such as Pedro, Kip and Uncle Rico along with the movie's hero. Crave has yet to release any further information about the titles or offer a release date.

"Napoleon Dynamite is one of the great cult classics of the past decade," said Mark Burke, Crave's senior vice president of product planning and business development.

"It's one of those films that has great memorable lines and characters, and we expect that fans of the movie will really like the game."
