Brash Ent. announced that the ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS videogame shipped to North American retailers. Timed to ship just 10 days before the theatrical release of the new live-action film ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS from Twentieth Century Fox, the videogame focuses on the Chipmunks' musical abilities through rhythm-based game play.
In the videogame, players follow Alvin, Simon and Theodore on their latest mission to play during the battle of the bands event "Rockathonapalooza." As the Chipmunks perform in each of the videogame'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 ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS videogame features the Grammy award-winning "The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don't Be Late)." Alvin's ditty about wanting a hula hoop (which was THE hot new toy at the time) was released as part of a novelty record in the fall of 1958. In addition, the game features 40 popular hits and cult favorites that parents and kids alike can play along to. These songs include chart-topping songs originally written by artists such as Run-DMC, Boy George and Blink 182.
ALVIN AND THE CHIPMUNKS is available for the PlayStation 2, Wii, Nintendo DS and PC. The game has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and is available at retailers nationwide. For more information, visit www.thechipmunksmoviegame.com.
