Electronic Arts announced today that the Looney Tunes: Back in Action videogame is now shipping to retail stores. Inspired by the action-packed feature film of the same title, the videogame was co-published with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and developed by Warthog for the PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo GameCube, and Game Boy Advance.

Looney Tunes: Back in Action offers dynamic gameplay and vibrant, rich Looney Tunes(TM) visuals that will attract and entertain fans of all ages. Longtime rivals Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are united under a common goal: finding the mythical Blue Monkey Diamond. Players will swap between Bugs and Daffy, using each character's own set of special skills, as they embark on an adventure around the world. They race into action from level to level to put an end to the sinister plans of the evil ACME(TM) Corporation in an effort to save the Earth.

The game includes five diversely themed environments, all inspired by the film's wild locations. Players will roam far and wide in their quest for the Blue Monkey Diamond, including a trip to uncover the alien mysteries of Area 52, a visit to the Warner Bros. Studios lot, and a descent into the depths of the jungles of Africa as they run, jump, and bounce their way through an unbelievable adventure. Along the way, gamers will flutter and burrow, utilizing each character's unique skills in order to outwit the all-star cast of Looney Tunes favorites and continue their scavenger hunt for the lost Blue Monkey Diamond.

Looney Tunes: Back in Action is rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB and carries an MSRP of $39.95 for console platforms and $29.95 for Game Boy Advance. The game is currently available on the PlayStation 2 console and Game Boy Advance, with the Nintendo GameCube version shipping into stores next week.
