WB gears up ‘ Speed Racer’ game

Studio to self-publish day-and-date release

Continuing to expand its inhouse videogame work, Warner Bros. will self-publish the game based on next summer’s tentpole “Speed Racer.”

Versions of the game playable on Nintendo’s Wii and DS will launch day-and-date with the pic’s theatrical release in May. A version for Sony’s PlayStation 2 comes out in the fall along with the DVD.

Given the short development schedule, Warner Bros. apparently decided not to invest in “Speed Racer” games for the high-powered PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 consoles.

Kiwi development studio Sidhe is making the game. Joh Gaeta, co-VFX supervisor on the “Speed Racer” film, is working with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, studio’s vidgame publishing arm, to maintain consistency between the movie and game.

“Speed Racer” is one of a growing number of upcoming vidgames that WBIE is financing and distributing based on internal properties, including “Looney Tunes: Acme Arsenal,” “Lego Batman,” and “Dirty Harry.”
