Shrek the Third gets developers for almost all platforms

We’ve all seen the first two Shrek movies and it’s fair to say that most people loved them (well, I certainly did anyway). With the third film coming to cinemas next Summer and a game on the way too, Shrek the Third finally gets itself some developers.

Activision’s just announced the lineup of development studios that will be backing the game up as Shrek the Third makes its multi-platform launch in May - just enough time for you to see them movie version when it hits theatres this March.

Here’s the developers:

  • Shaba Games is handling the console release (Xbox 360, PS2, Wii).
  • Vicarious Visions is handling the DS and GBA releases.
  • Amaze Entertainment is handling the PSP release.
  • Beenox is handling the PC release.

As you can see, the game will be on almost all platforms thus giving the majority of the gaming community a chance to buy it. That’s pretty good news if you only own one or two consoles but are a big fan of the movies and games. While most systems share pretty much the same controls, the Wiimote is totally different. This makes you wonder, what the developers have done with it. This type of game might be something the Wii wasn’t cut out for, but we’ll find out in less than a year.

However, when I look at that list of developers, the question of why it will be only two of the next-gen consoles springs to mind. Was this Activision’s choice to leave PS3 fans out in the cold? Or would Shaba Games not agree to developing it for the PS3? Who knows?

Both the game and film are set for a Summer 2007 release.
