Leading worldwide video game publisher Little Orbit, in collaboration with Disney Interactive, announced today that Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue, the video game based on Disney’s new animated feature film, “Planes: Fire & Rescue” (in theaters Friday, July 18), will launch this fall exclusively for Nintendo platforms. Fasten your seatbelts and prepare for sky-high fun as players embark on fire-and-rescue emergencies with all their favorite characters from the movie!
“Working with Disney Interactive on this game has been a wonderful experience for us,” said Matt Scott, CEO of Little Orbit. “We know these are beloved characters, and we’re thrilled to bring them to life in this fun-filled video game experience.”
Inspired by Disney’s adventure-comedy adventure film, the video game continues the storyline as players join the Piston Peak Air Attack team to fight fires and rescue those in need. Kids will embark on an adventure playing as any one of nine playable characters from the big screen including world-famous air racer Dusty and a new crop of characters Blade, Dipper, Dynamite and more! Together, kids will combine heroic action and teamwork as they scoop up water, drop smokejumpers and bulldoze debris in an effort to battle massive wildfires.
Players will soar across rich environments that feature iconic monuments and structures from the film as they participate in two exciting modes of play: Fire & Rescue and Training Academy. Take to the skies with 12 story missions and more than 30 training academy missions as players operate planes, helicopters and ground vehicles as to respond to emergencies. Heroes in training can “earn their wings” as they progress through training and story missions to reach new heights!
Disney Planes: Fire & Rescue will be available in North America, Europe and Australia on Nintendo Wii™, Wii U™ Nintendo 3DS™ and DS™ this fall.
