In honor of Peanuts’ 65th anniversary this year, Activision Publishing, Inc., the wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., and Peanuts Worldwide announced today the upcoming release of an original PEANUTS video game entitled The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure which is inspired by the upcoming film, The Peanuts Movie. The film is set to arrive in theaters this fall from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is a side-scrolling exploration platformer featuring the characters and world of the classic comic strip from Charles M. Schulz.
In The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, Snoopy explores his own very active imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek. As the game of hide-and-seek progresses, Snoopy will acquire new costumes that are based on many of his alter egos from the comic strip and classic animated films. These costumes will provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching new levels, including flight stages that let him take off as the Flying Ace. From exotic jungles, to Paris, and even 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 will also feature the same voice actors as the upcoming film.
The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure will challenge and delight players of all ages with it’s pick-up-and-go controls and plenty of lighthearted surprises to discover. A second player can even join the adventure as Woodstock and can aid Snoopy by distracting creatures, opening new paths and helping to locate hidden collectibles.
