About Judy

As WP's managing editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games.

Activision to Develop 'Shrek 3' (ALL)

by Judy on Feb. 2, 2005 @ 8:14 a.m. PST

In Shrek the Third, players adventure as Shrek and his friends to save Far Far Away in a hilariously twisted fairy tale from the movie and beyond. Fans play as their favorite heroes from the film: Shrek, Donkey, Puss-in-Boots, Fiona, Fiona’s rebellious cousin Arthur and her fellow fairy tale heroine Sleeping Beauty. The game takes players on an epic journey through the worlds of Far Far Away after Prince Charming storms the city with an army of villains in order to seize the throne. Players are challenged to rescue pals, face off against Charming’s henchmen, gather collectibles, test their gaming skills in numerous boss fights and engage in various single-player and multiplayer mini-games.

"Activision is very excited to further expand its licensing agreement with DreamWorks on the third installment in the blockbuster animated series," said Ron Doornink, CEO of Activision Publishing, Inc. "Shrek has proven to be one of the most popular children's video game properties worldwide and we expect to continue building on the success of the franchise with the release of our upcoming game Shrek SuperSlam and future games."

In addition to "Shrek 2" and "Shrek 3," Activision also holds the exclusive interactive rights to publish games based on DreamWorks' computer-animated feature film "Shark Tale," as well as DreamWorks Animation's "Madagascar," which is scheduled to open in the U.S. on May 27, 2005 and "Over the Hedge," which is to be released in 2006.

"We're pleased that the year's #1 movie is also now the year's #1 kids animated videogame," said Anne Globe, head of DreamWorks Consumer Products. "Activision has a strong commitment to making great games, and has worked hand in hand with our animation teams to expand the Shrek universe into a broad world of terrific interactive adventures. We're excited about the future titles for Shrek, as well as upcoming new releases planned for Madagascar and Over the Hedge."
