ACTIVISION PUBLISHING, INC. LAUNCHES THE PEANUTS MOVIE: SNOOPY’S GRAND ADVENTURE VIDEO GAME FOR CONSOLES
The Imaginative World of The Peanuts Movie Also Comes Alive in Peanuts: Snoopy’s Town Tale, Coming to Select Apple Devices Nov. 5
SANTA MONICA, Calif. – Nov. 3, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc. has released The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, a new console game, as a part of its deal with Peanuts Worldwide. The game is inspired by the classic comic strip from Charles M. Schulz, which just recently celebrated its 65th anniversary. This side-scrolling exploration platformer features simple, pick-up-and-play controls and the classic characters and humor of Peanuts, delivering a great experience for fans of all ages.
When Charlie Brown and the gang run off to play hide-and-seek, Snoopy hits the trail to track them down. As players dive into the wild worlds of Snoopy’s imagination, they’ll traverse a multitude of different environments, from the deep jungle to the moon itself, each teeming with surprises and dangers. Snoopy can reach new places with unique hidden costumes that give the beagle new abilities based on his many infamous alter egos, including Joe Cool and the Flying Ace, which unlocks special flight stages. A second player can partner up as Woodstock to help Snoopy get past dangerous creatures and obstacles, or find secret paths and collectibles such as jelly beans and the trusty Beagle Scouts.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure draws from the distinctive style and playful charm of The Peanuts Movie, coming to theaters on Nov. 6 from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios. The varied worlds of Snoopy’s daydreams are painted in gorgeously colorful 3D detail, and the film’s vocal cast is showcased throughout the game.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is out today in North America on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Xbox One for $49.99 MSRP, Xbox 360 and Nintendo’s Wii U™ system for $39.99 MSRP, and the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system for $29.99 MSRP.
