With its debut trailer, Wreck-It Ralph instantly became my most wanted movie in existence. After watching, I wondered precisely how a movie tie-in would work. Would the developers try and recreate a polished version of the 'game' Wreck-it Ralph, or would they go down the road of trying to make it look like the movie... turns out we have some sort of answer.
The game will be a 2D side-scroller, worked as a "story extension" based on events that happen after the movie.
But perhaps more interestingly, despite the fact the game is being published by Activision, it's only appearing on Nintendo consoles — the Wii, 3DS, and DS. It made me realise — of all the real video game characters shown in the trailer — the only first party characters featured were Nintendo characters. The rest were all third party characters. Perhaps Nintendo has some sort of deal going on with Disney?
