As part of the ongoing Hasbro and EA initiative, EA today confirmed that they are working on a GI Joe game inspired by the upcoming Paramount Pictures film. The new title is set to ship in the summer of this year and will coincide with the film's release which is currently set for August 7th 2009.
"The G.I. JOE® video game will feature an exclusive storyline that picks up where the live-action movie leaves off, allowing players to re-create and re-live the greatest moments from the film, cartoon series and action figure toy line. The game will feature 12 G.I. JOE® characters, each with unique abilities and weapons. Adding to the adrenaline rush will be an intense single-screen co-op mode allowing two players to easily unite as a team in a classic struggle between good and evil as they work together to defeat the powers of the COBRA organization."
GI Joe will be available on all major consoles and more this summer.
