Namco Bandai, Paramount Pictures to Publish Star Trek in Q1 2013
Namco Bandai will be teaming up with Paramount Pictures to co-publish the Star Trek video game during the first quarter of 2013, it was revealed today.
The game will be released on all “major home consoles” and PC. Our guess is that “major consoles” would mean the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and likely the Nintendo Wii-U by that time.
Namco Bandai says the game is expected to launch prior to the theatrical release of the next Star Trek movie, which is scheduled for May 17, 2013. The game however, will be based on its own storyline that continues the adventure of Kirk and Spock that revolves around stopping a “legendary enemy” from conquering the galaxy.
“With our Namco Bandai partners leading the distribution effort, we are confident that we will meet an overwhelming demand to get this exciting console experience into the hands of gamers and Star Trek fans worldwide”, commented LeeAnne Stables, Paramount Pictures Executive Vice President of Worldwide Marketing Partnerships and head of the studio’s video game unit. Stables continued, “The positive response from our initial unveiling at E3 last year was unprecedented, and we are fortunate to have the highest level of production and creative talent on our team that will bring this incredible game out to market next year.”
So who’s ready to get beamed up?
