Get it? Brave to find a home? You know... you could stay that PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, Nintendo DS and Windows PC and Mac are soon to be "Home of the Brave." Ah, that's too torturous a pun, really.
Plus Brave isn't even set in the USA. It's set in Scotland! Hooray!
If you're not familiar with Disney/Pixar's upcoming movie, well you blimmin' should be. Here's a wee synopsis. Basically, it's about Merida (voiced by Kelly Macdonald) who confronts tradition and challenges destiny to change her fate, following her heroic journey as the skilled archer and headstrong daughter of King Fergus (Billy Connolly) and Queen Elinor (Emma Thompson).
Determined to carve her own path in life, Merida defies an age-old custom sacred to the unruly and uproarious lords of the land: massive Lord MacGuffin (Kevin McKidd), surly Lord Macintosh (Craig Ferguson) and cantankerous Lord Dingwall (Robbie Coltrane... and yes, they have got pretty much ever Scottish actor in this.) Merida’s actions inadvertently unleash chaos and fury in the kingdom, and when she turns to an eccentric Witch (Julie Walters) for help, she is granted an ill-fated wish. The ensuing peril forces Merida to harness all of her skills and resources – including her clever and mischievous triplet brothers – to undo a beastly curse before it’s too late, "discovering the meaning of true bravery."
That's coming June 22nd, 2012. Hooray!
So! Inspired by the movie, the video game "invites players to run, jump and battle their way through the rugged landscape of mythical and mysterious Scotland."
Launching at some time in summer (no specific date) to join the movie, the game is apparently going to "expand the tale beyond the movie's storyline."
“We’re excited to offer a compelling game across multiple platforms for fans of the upcoming Disney Pixar film ‘Brave.’ Whether gamers want to play on their own or with others, they can relive highlights from Merida’s journey and go on new adventures inspired by the legends of Scotland and Disney Pixar storytelling,” said Javier Ferreira, senior vice president of publishing, Disney Interactive Media Group. “With Kinect for Xbox 360 and Move on the PlayStation 3, gamers will feel like they are using a bow and arrow in an archery range and have a truly immersive experience.”
