Telltale's first episodic game for Xbox LIVE Arcade, Wallace & Gromit: Fright of the Bumblebees, releases worldwide today. The first of four episodes comprising Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures, the English language game is available for 800 Microsoft points and includes subtitles in German, French and Spanish.
Today's Xbox LIVE Arcade release brings Fright of the Bumblebees to the living room where players can enjoy the interactive experience in the same comfy environment as a Wallace & Gromit film.
In Fright of the Bumblebees, scatterbrained inventor Wallace and his crafty canine companion Gromit embark on a new honey enterprise, "From Bee to You." When demand out-steps supply, Wallace tries to boost his worker bees' production using a home-brewed growth formula — with comically disastrous results. Playing as both Wallace and Gromit, you must unravel the mess and restore order to the duo's quiet Northern England neighbourhood.
The next three episodes of Wallace & Gromit's Grand Adventures will launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade in the coming months. Telltale's acclaimed Sam & Max games are also coming soon to Xbox LIVE Arcade.
Telltale is also announcing that the PC versions of Fright of the Bumblebees and the second Wallace & Gromit episode, The Last Resort, are now available for individual purchase for $8.95 at http://www.telltalegames.com/mail/46617779/. These were previously only available in a $34.95 series bundle. As with Telltale's other series, customers who buy one Wallace & Gromit episode for PC will be able to upgrade to the full season for $26.
About Wallace & Gromit
An endearing and affable inventor. Ever enthusiastic, Wallace's hair-brained, over ambitious, yet well intentioned ideas consistently get him and his faithful hound into trouble. Wallace has a definite penchant for cheese and crackers, not to mention fashionable knitwear!
Wallace's long-suffering loyal pooch. Gromit cares greatly for Wallace even though he's often railroaded into his master's mad-cap plans. Though cultured and sensitive, preferring order and the quiet life, Gromit displays amazing courage and heroism when it comes to getting his master out of self-made scrapes. Always showing astonishing initiative, Gromit is definitely the intelligent one of the pair.
