Alvin and the Chipmunks, the #1 kids musical act of all time, rock their way into the world of interactive games this holiday with ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS, the videogame, from Brash Ent. Scheduled to ship Dec. 4, 2007, preceding the release on Dec. 14, of the new live-action/CGI film ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS from 20th Century Fox, the game will be available for the PlayStation 2, the Wii, Nintendo DS and PC.
The ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS game focuses on the Chipmunks' musical abilities, while expanding on the film's storyline. It follows Alvin, Simon, & Theodore on their latest mission to play during the battle of the bands event "Rockathonapalooza." As the Chipmunks perform in each of the video game's musical levels -- from school proms to Burning Man to Forest Arenas to the ultimate, Rockathonapalooza -- players are challenged to keep in rhythm with the music. The combination of fun game play, a cool soundtrack and everyone's favorite Chipmunks creates another way for the fans of Alvin, new and old, to enjoy and expand on their movie experience.
"This holiday, Alvin, Simon and Theodore have been entirely redesigned with a bold new look for the launch of their first live-action film and video game debut," said Ross Bagdasarian, CEO of Bagdasarian Prods.
The soundtrack for the ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS video game features smash-hit songs spanning several decades, including popular billboard hits and cult favorites, sung in signature Chipmunk style, that give the video game a unique sound. The songs will resonate with parents, while introducing a new generation of kids to Alvin and his brothers. In addition to the pop culture staple "The Chipmunk Song," the more than 40 songs include "All The Small Things" (Blink 182), "It's Tricky" (Run DMC), "Heartbreak Hotel" (Elvis Presley), "All Star" (Smashmouth) and "Shiny Happy People" (REM).
