While information has been incredibly scarce up to this point, there is a new Disney movie coming out called Wreck-It Ralph.
Why should you care? Because it’s all about video games.
Not only that, it’s going to be full of cameos from famous video game characters (everyone from Bowser, to Dr. Robotnik, to Kano, to Dr. Wily), as video bad guy Ralph goes on an epic quest of arcade proportions to finally be the hero. From the sound of it, it’s going to be the Who Framed Roger Rabbit? for video games.
Oh sure, this sort of thing draws me in like you wouldn’t believe, but they also debuted this at the D23 expo:
Fix-It Felix Jr. (from TomiKobi) looks to be heavily inspired by Nintendo arcade games of old, from gameplay to the cabinet art. If Disney Interactive doesn’t drop this game as a download around the film’s debut, they will have missed a major tie-in opportunity.
There’s not much out there right now, but the trailer is said to debut alongside Pixar’s Brave. I’ll likely be posting more as it gets closer to its premiere. It’s been so low-key that it’s easy to forget about, but hopefully, and knowing Disney, they’ll push this game like crazy before it debuts.
