Vivendi Universal announced this morning that a new [i]Incredible Hulk[/i] game is currenlty in development. The game, which is being developed by [i]Radical Games[/i] of [i]Simpsons: Hit and Run[/i] fame, will be an all-new action adventure title that aims to have the ultimate in destructible enviornments and Hulk-smashing in a completely free-roaming and interactive world.
“Our collaboration with Marvel on The Incredible Hulk will give gamers the opportunity to play as one of the most powerful and exciting characters to ever exist,” said Michael Pole, EVP, Worldwide Studios, VU Games. “The Incredible Hulk will deliver unlimited power and freedom immersed in an authentic world that will engage Hulk fans and core gamers.”
Being able to jump anywhere, climb anything, and smash everything are highlights of the game, but being able to create your own Hulk-powered weapons from anything in the enviornment also looks to enhance the game experience as well. In addition, you’ll also be able to unlock new moves in boss battles to make Hulk stronger.
“We are very excited to have Radical developing this new Hulk title, continuing another blockbuster Marvel game franchise,” said Ames Kirshen, Director Of Video Game Development at Marvel Enterprises. “Vivendi Universal Games and Radical are creating an interactive world where the player will have all of the freedoms and larger than life abilities of the Hulk in enormous and interactive ‘sandbox’ environments which really capture the essence of the character.”
[i]The Incredible Hulk[/i] will be hitting the PlayStation 2, Xbox, and GameCube in the summer of next year for $39.95.
