Electronic Arts has revealed that Superman Returns: The Videogame is scheduled for a summer 2006 release in conjunction with the release of the film Superman Returns on June 30, 2006.
“We have assembled world class talent at EA Tiburon to deliver this blockbuster experience and we are thrilled to team up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics and have the opportunity to demonstrate our creative and technological expertise in the action/adventure category,” said Steven Chiang, vice president and studio general manager, EA Tiburon. “We are creating a game that allows players to experience a real sense of flying, and master Superman's unrivaled super hero powers in order to save Metropolis. Only Superman can meet challenges of this scale.”
The game, which features storylines from both the movie as well as the comic book, is being developed by Electronic Arts-Tiburon in Orlando, the same games that develop Madden. The game is set to be released on all the current consoles, as well as the Xbox 360.
