ACTIVISION PUBLISHING AND TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX LICENSING & MERCHANDISING ANNOUNCED THE RELEASE OF PERCY JACKSON & THE LIGHTNING THIEF FOR NINTENDO DS

 

The Wildly Popular Children’s Book Series and Upcoming Theatrical Release Comes to Life on Nintendo DS

Activision Publishing, and Twentieth Century Fox Licensing & Merchandising announced last Friday the UK release of the Percy Jackson &  The Lightning Thief video game for Nintendo DS. The thrilling and addictive tactical role-playing game is based on Rick Riordan’s acclaimed book series and 20th Century Fox’s eagerly anticipated movie Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief, which arrived in cinemas 12th February, 2010.

Based on the first novel in the best-selling book series, Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief is set in a modern world where the twelve gods of Mount Olympus are alive and Percy Jackson, the teenage son of Poseidon, is suspected by Zeus of stealing his lightning bolt, the universe’s most powerful weapon.  Percy must prove his innocence, save his mother, and avoid a devastating war among the gods.

“It’s wonderful to see this magical saga brought to life in gamers’ hands,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “The game’s impressive visuals and strategic gameplay does justice to the larger than life contemporary mythological world in which the book and movie take place.”

Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President of New Media Licensing for Fox Licensing added, “Fans of the book series and those about to become fans of the film are going to have a great time playing this game.”

Players will need to employ all the spells and strategies at their disposal as they lead Percy and his friends, Annabeth and Grover, through every exciting scenario. As they overcome enemies they will grow more powerful and learn new skills to aid them as they search for the lost lightning bolt. Planning which team member to take into battle is key to survival – certain combinations of characters boost their effectiveness.

Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief is now available for Nintendo DS. For more information please visit www.activision.com.
