THQ Inc. is developing RATATOUILLE, based on the summer 2007 film from Disney/Pixar, across 11 systems, for release in summer 2007 to coincide with the worldwide release of the highly anticipated film. RATATOUILLE will mark the most comprehensive simultaneous cross-platform launch in THQ's history.

Fans will be able to relive thrilling moments from the film and experience the sights, sounds and, most importantly, the smells, of Paris a la Remy across a multitude of gaming systems.
