Bee Movie Game is based on the upcoming DreamWorks Animation film, "Bee Movie," from creator Jerry Seinfeld. Bee Movie Game allows players to race, chase, fly and blast their way through the adrenaline-fueled world from the feature film and beyond. As the witty and courageous Barry B. Benson, gamers are propelled on an exciting adventure to save the bees' right to produce honey and keep it for themselves.
In the Nintendo DS(TM)-exclusive title, Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys, Shrek(R) & Fiona's energetic triplets will appear along side Donkey & Dragon's playful offspring, the dronkeys, and give handheld gamers the chance to train, play and explore with their mischievous new friends on wild adventures throughout the hilarious world of Shrek.
"This fall, we have again creatively collaborated with DreamWorks Animation to create not one, but two, all-new movie-inspired video game adventures that take fans beyond the feature films," said Kim Salzer, Vice President of Global Brand Management, Activision Publishing. "Both Bee Movie Game and Shrek: Ogres and Dronkeys are prime examples of our continued commitment to developing exceptional family entertainment games based on the terrific film properties from DreamWorks Animation."
Bee Movie Game offers a one-of-a-kind gameplay experience with more than 15 levels, compelling side-quests, amusing multi-player mini-games and a wide variety of never-before-seen content co-created by DreamWorks Animation and Activision exclusively for the game. Built natively for the next-generation consoles, the game brilliantly captures Barry's lighting-fast pace while he navigates the dangerous streets of New York City, races cars through the bustling New Hive City, dodges massive raindrops and engages in aerial dogfights using his "pollinator" gear.
