Snoopy Embarks on a Grand Video Game Adventure This Fall

Tying in with The Peanuts Movie from 20th Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is an upcoming video game set to ship this fall on Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking–it’s just another licensed movie game. Call me crazily optimistic, but I don’t think this movie game is going to suck. In fact, it actually looks like good, clean 2D side-scrolling platformer fun. Obviously it’s very safe and unoriginal, but it appears to be aiming for a Rayman Legends/Origins style, which is A-ok in my book. Plus, it has Woodstock sidekick co-op!

In The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure, Snoopy explores the fantastical worlds of his imagination to track down Charlie Brown and his friends in an intricate game of hide-and-seek. As he follows their trails, Snoopy will acquire new costumes (based on his many alter egos) that provide unique abilities for overcoming obstacles and reaching new levels, including flight stages that let him take off as the Flying Ace. From the jungle to Paris to the moon itself, each environment is painted gorgeously in the same visual style as The Peanuts Movie to bring to life every colorful detail of Snoopy’s wild daydreams. The game also includes voice talent from the film.

The Peanuts Movie: Snoopy’s Grand Adventure challenges curiosities of any age with comfortable, pick-up-and-go controls and plenty of lighthearted surprises to discover. A second player can join the adventure as Woodstock to aid Snoopy by distracting creatures, opening new paths and helping locate hidden collectibles.

Developed by Behaviour Interactive and published by Activision, Snoopy’s Grand Adventure is scheduled to launch on November 3rd. Unlike a lot of movie games, I’ll be looking forward to playing this one.
