Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have teamed up with D3Publisher to roll out a themed video game for a number of consoles.
Universal Partnerships & Licensing led the deal for the game, which will be available this July for the Wii, Nintendo DS, PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable.
"Putting players in the shoes of Gru and his army of minions offers hilarious gameplay opportunities," says Bill Kispert, vice president and general manager of digital platforms at Universal Partnerships & Licensing. "The
video games arm players with an arsenal of fun-filled weapons and gadgets—and loads of laughs—as they help Gru pull off his most ambitious heist yet."
