Today Ubisoft announced that the first preview of Peter Jackson's King Kong, the video game based on Universal Pictures' December 14th release, King Kong, from three-time Academy Award winner Peter Jackson (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, obviously), will be unveiled at Ubisoft's booth at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles.
The King Kong area of Ubisoft's booth will be the largest ever created for a Ubisoft title, representing 40 percent of the entire booth and standing 20 feet (6 meters) tall. It will showcase the phenomenal creative results that are possible when industry-leading film and video game professionals come together to create a new paradigm in entertainment.
"Ubisoft is thrilled to be collaborating with Peter Jackson, Wingnut Films and Universal Studios Consumer Products Group to make Peter Jackson's King Kong video game an unforgettable experience," said Yves Guillemot, president and chief executive officer of Ubisoft. "The game exceeds any previous movie-based title in graphic quality and adaptation of a storyline while taking full advantage of the strengths of the interactive video game experience. Peter Jackson's King Kong will be Ubisoft's most impressive and successful game of 2005."
Beth Goss, executive vice president of Universal Studios Consumer Products Group added, "King Kong has provided the unique opportunity to put two visionary storytellers - Peter Jackson and Michel Ancel - together to create an extraordinary piece of interactive entertainment. This video game has been a great adventure, both in its development and in the experience it will deliver to players."
