SANTA MONICA, Calif. – July 8, 2015 – Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI), and Peanuts Worldwide today announced they will release an original PEANUTS video game inspired by The Peanuts Movie, coming this fall from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios. The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is a side-scrolling exploration platformer game starring the characters and charm of the classic comic strip from Charles M. Schulz, which is celebrating its 65th anniversary this year.
In The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, Snoopy explores the fantastical worlds of his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek. As he follows their trails, Snoopy will acquire new costumes (based on his many alter egos) that provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching new levels, including flight stages that let him take off as the Flying Ace. From the jungle to Paris to the moon itself, each environment is painted gorgeously in the same visual style as The Peanuts Movie to bring to life every colorful detail of Snoopy’s wild daydreams. The game also includes voice talent from the film.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure challenges curiosities of any age with comfortable, pick-up-and-go controls and plenty of lighthearted surprises to discover. A second player can join the adventure as Woodstock to aid Snoopy by distracting creatures, opening new paths and helping locate hidden collectibles.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is expected to launch this fall on the PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system, Xbox One, the all-in-one games and entertainment system from Microsoft, the Xbox 360 games and entertainment system from Microsoft, Nintendo’s Wii U™ system, and the Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held system.
