Based on the upcoming feature film inspired by itself, Astro Boy: The Video Game will allow players to become Astro Boy, a young boy robot with incredible powers who takes to the streets and skies on an epic adventure to save Metro City from the clutches of the evil President Stone and his robot army.

"SEGA has been presented with several exciting summer promotions for Astro Boy," said Scott A. Steinberg, Vice President of Entertainment Marketing, SEGA of America, Inc. "We have decided to better align the launch of these skus with our marketing partners and take full advantage of the back-to-school retail season."
