Friday 15 April 2005/... Ignition Entertainment announces "Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt," licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCubeTM in May 2005 throughout Europe. Based on the multiple Emmy Award-winning animated series from Warner Bros. Animation and Amblin Entertainment, this new addition to Ignition's ever-growing line-up makes full use of the Animaniacs license - right down to the actual voice actors from the series.
Developed by Warthog, "Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt" will also be released in North America in June 2005.
The game is a third-person action adventure, which brings the colourful and hysterical world of the Animaniacs wonderfully to life. Players must guide the Warner brothers...and sister - Wakko, Yakko and Dot - through six levels in a quest to locate the hidden Edgar trophies. Each Animaniac has his or her own special abilities, and each must be used in order to fully explore the luscious landscapes.
Puzzle elements are featured in the game along with ever-changing enemies and obstacles. Five incredible 'Pinky & The Brain' mini-games vary the pace of the adventure, as they explore the huge Animaniacs world, which is populated with dozens of characters from the cartoon.
"Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt" will be released for PlayStation®2, Xbox® and Nintendo GameCubeTM in June 2005, priced £19.99.
