Rio is a 3D comedy adventure about Blu, a rare domesticated bird who travels to the exotic land of Rio. Blu goes on the adventure of his life with the help of his female counterpart, Jewel, and a group of wise-cracking, smooth-talking city birds.

In Rio, up to four players (Wii, PS3, X360 only) can compete with each other in 40 mini-games as one of the six playable characters from the film: Blu, Jewel, Pedro, Nico, Raphael, and Eva. Players can compete in five unique modes as they journey through Rio to win first place in the ceremony at the Carnaval ceremony. Rio also features quick “jump in, jump out” gameplay, allowing players to enter and exit a game as they please – making it perfect for family and party fun.

For on-the-go excitement, the NDS and NDSi versions offer a completely different game from the console version via a rhythm-based adventure. As the main character from the film, Blu, players can use their stylus to discover Latin and hip hop beats as they navigate through 20 levels and seven colorful locations. Rio also features four fun mini-games where players will be able to party with the other characters from the film.

RIO’s humor, compelling characters, thrilling story, colorful characters and wonderful music inspired us to create a unique and imaginative game experience,” said Martin Good, THQ’s Executive Vice President of Kids, Family and Casual Games.

RIO is one of the biggest family film events of the year and is tailor made to be enjoyed through a video game that will bring the same experience to gamers of all ages,” added Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President, New Media for Fox Consumer Products.
