E3: SEGA bringing Charlotte's Web to PC and handhelds

SEGA and Backbone Entertainment are working on a licensed adaptation of Nickelodeon's forthcoming film, Charlotte's Web.

Due out this autumn on PC, DS and GBA, Charlotte's Web will allow players to adopt the role of Wilbur the pig or Templeton the rat and explore various areas familiar to fans of the franchise.

While every player will be able to enjoy areas like the County Fair and Zuckerman's barn, GBA and DS buyers will be able to access extra mini-games - and DS owners will be able to hook up with up to three of their friends wirelessly.

SEGA's vice president of marketing Scott A. Steinberg said the game would prove "captivating" for "players of all ages". "Players will find themselves immersed in an interactive environment where they'll encounter a colorful cast of characters while they embark on a very special journey," he said.

Charlotte's Web will be shown off during E3 next week.
