Tarzan is set to swing into the Wii, PS3, Xbox 360 and PC, thanks to the recent agreement between Italian developer TWELVE, and literary license holder Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.

"Developing Tarzan, one of the most enduringly popular characters of all time, for the videogame market, will be TWELVE’s biggest challenge to date,” comments Giuseppe Crugliano, founder and Managing Director of TWELVE. "We are extremely happy that our vision of Tarzan for this millennium met with the same enthusiasm from Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc..It will be a huge but inspiring task, a timeless character, timeless ideals, further enhanced by the sheer quality of next-gen technology. Tarzan has been a hero for generations, irrespective of age, and we can’t wait to get to work on what we’re sure will be truly captivating gameplay."

James J. Sullos, Jr., President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc., says, “Over the years, Tarzan has represented human survival against all odds, rugged individualism, and a protector of the natural habitat - he is the First Conservationist. His physical prowess and complex personality lends itself to a myriad of possibilities in developing high powered next-gen console games, and we are pleased that TWELVE shares our enthusiasm. We look forward to collaborating with TWELVE as it develops exciting Tarzan console games.

TWELVE has chosen the Gamebryo game engine, from Emergent Game Technologies, to develop the cross-platform Tarzan title. Gamebryo’s powerful and flexible capabilities will allow TWELVE to exploit the full potential of next-gen consoles to capture the true essence of Tarzan.

TWELVE is currently looking for a publishing partner for Tarzan, the video game.
