D3Publisher (D3P) today announced a worldwide licensing agreement with Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment for Yogi Bear: The Video Game. Yogi Bear: The Video Game will be for Wii and Nintendo DS and is slated for worldwide release this holiday season in conjunction with the big screen release of the all-new Yogi Bear movie.
In Yogi Bear: The Video Game, you will help Yogi Bear (voiced by Dan Akroyd, who also stars as Yogi in the movie) save Jellystone Park from being shut down forever. Players will be able to explore, jump, crawl, belly slide, sneak, and zip-line through brilliantly constructed Jellystone Park locations in search of wildlife and adventure. Of course, it wouldn’t be Yogi without the distraction of a pic-a-nic basket or two! However, be careful, Ranger Smith doesn’t tolerate disturbance of his campers and keeps a watchful eye over the park. Luckily there is Yogi Bear’s trusty sidekick Boo Boo, to help Yogi get through difficult challenges and antics.
“With over 50 years of history, the Yogi Bear license has proven to be smarter than the average bear,” said Bill Anker, vice president of business development and licensing, D3P. “In time for the Hollywood release of the film, the video game promises to deliver the full Yogi Bear experience that parents can enjoy with their children.”
Based on the film directed by Eric Brevig and characters created by Hanna-Barbera Production; Yogi Bear: The Video Game is under development by Monkey Bar Games and is ready to stun the world come the holiday season.
