Rango Launches SuperCheats News
Normally getting excited about the launch of a video game aimed at kids is not a good sign, but Rango is just like the Cars or Toy Story games -- yeah, it is meant for play by children, but you just know it is going to be a fun and light romp you will really enjoy, so you have to plat it too!
According to Paramount Digital and Electronic Arts Rango The Video Game is now available worldwide for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii, and Nintendo DS, which means you have lots of choice for platform.
Rango The Video Game is an action-adventure game inspired by the forthcoming Paramount Pictures/Nickelodeon Movies animated feature film, Rango (in theaters on March 4th) that is set in the gritty, Wild West town of Dirt, and filled with wily and whimsical characters. Players get to continue on Rango's wild journey with all new tall tales brimming with intense action and outlandish scenarios inspired by the movie.
"Rango's fondness for telling tall tales allowed us to push the limits in creating new adventures for players of all ages to enjoy," says Thomas Lesinski, President of Paramount Digital Entertainment. "We worked closely with the Rango filmmaking team on a unique game storyline and integrating stunning visuals from the film to create a game that delivers a great variety of game play that has already impressed the critics."
Rango The Video Game lets players explore a wide variety of environments featured within and beyond the film and challenges them to achieve near-impossible feats as they work to uncover a plot that threatens the entire population of Dirt. Along the way, players will encounter Zombie rodents, Alien spaceships and even an 8-bit shootout inside an arcade machine.
This family-friendly title captures the spirit and humor of the movie, with an extended storyline that goes beyond the vivid world of Dirt. Some of the features include:
Rango's All New Tall Tales - Play as the quick-thinking chameleon Rango, the best Sheriff the town of Dirt has ever known, and explore a variety of new missions and environments that expand beyond those seen in the film.
Ride Roadrunners and Desert Bats - Speed through the desert atop these unconventional chariots as players engage in extraordinary acrobatic gunplay and more.
Interact with the Dirtonians - From a group of mariachi birds that provide color commentary to a gang of wild rabbits, the townsfolk of Dirt will provide no shortage of fun and entertainment.
Wild West Action and Adventure - Face hordes of hostile zombie rodents as you show the town who's boss in good, old-fashioned shootouts where fists are flyin' and spurs are shinin.'
