Yuke’s Co., Ltd. has signed with Legendary Pictures to acquire the license to create a video game for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim. Read on for the details fiends.
The game will be an officially licensed title based on the film, a presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
After developing the world’s first 3D wrestling video game engine for the PlayStation, Yuke’s continues to lead the world in fighting game technology with its “WWE” and “UFC” game series. Yuke’s also garnered a success with a completely new business model, developing a digital downloadable game based on Real Steel.
Currently, there are no further details about the Pacific Rim game, but we’ll keep you posted.
Pacific Rim will be released on July 12th.
Legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, start rising from the sea and begin a war that would takes millions of lives and consumes humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
