If there wasnâ€™t a game in development based on the upcoming animated Alvin and the Chipmunks movie, then the world would come to a complete stand-still. Brash Entertainment obviously donâ€™t want that to happen, so theyâ€™ve snapped up the rights.
Due out on PlayStation 2, Wii and DS, itâ€™s apparently going to be a bit like Guitar Hero – right down to the hairy faces and whiny high-pitched voices. A vague attempt at a joke, there.
So far the track listing includes Blink 182, Run DMC and Elvis. Look what theyâ€™ve done to the Chipmunks though! They should have made them super cute, not urban rapper wannabes. And wasnâ€™t Simon meant to be a massive nerd anyway?
Another film heading for consoles is Speed Racer – which is based on the ancient anime and is being done by the Wachowski brothers. Itâ€™s in development for the same formats as above, but oddly the PlayStation 2 version is being held back to tie-in with the DVD release.
