Grammy Award-Winning Alvin and the Chipmunks rock their way into the world of video games just in time for the holiday season.
Hollywood, Calif. - December 4, 2007 - Brash Entertainment announced today that the Alvin and the Chipmunks video game shipped to North American retailers, marking the #1 kids musical act of all time’s interactive debut. Timed to ship just 10 days before the theatrical release of the exciting new live action film, Alvin and the Chipmunks, from Twentieth Century Fox, the video game focuses on the Chipmunks musical abilities through rhythm based game play.
In the video game players follow Alvin, Simon, & Theodore on their latest mission to play during the battle of the bands event “Rockathonapalooza”. As the Chipmunks perform in each of the video game’s musical levels-from school proms to burning man to forest arenas to the ultimate, Rockathonapalooza - players are challenged to keep in rhythm with the music. The combination of fun game play, a cool soundtrack and everyone’s favorite Chipmunks, creates another way for the fans of Alvin, new and old, to enjoy and expand on their movie experience.
The Alvin and the Chipmunks video game features the Grammy® award-winning ‘The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)’. Alvin’s ditty about wanting a hula hoop (which was THE hot new toy at the time) was released as part of a novelty record in the fall of 1958. The record went on to sell more than 4 million copies in seven weeks and spent four weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Later earning three Grammy® Awards and a nomination for Record of the Year, the song has become part of our pop culture appearing in various film and television hits, including Saturday Night Live, Friends, The Sopranos, Almost Famous, King of Queens, Nip/Tuck, Boston Legal, Ally McBeal and Ugly.
In addition to the Chipmunk Song, the game features 40 popular hits and cult favorites that parents and kids alike can play along to. These songs include chart-topping songs originally written by artists such as RUN-DMC, Boy George and Blink 182. Alvin and the Chipmunks is available for the PLAYSTATION®2 computer entertainment system, the WiiTM and Nintendo DSTM videogame systems from Nintendo, and PC. The game has been rated E for Everyone by the ESRB and is available at retailers nationwide. For more information about this game please visit www.thechipmunksmoviegame.com.
