GAMEMILL ENTERTAINMENT GOES HOLLYWOOD WITH SONY PICTURES
ANIMATION’S HOTEL TRANSYLVANIA; COMING SOON TO NINTENDO DS
and NINTENDO 3DS
Minneapolis, MN- July 23, 2012- GameMill Entertainment, an independent publisher of entertaining mass-market video games, announced today its plans to release Hotel Transylvania for the Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held systems, an action-adventure video game based on Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming animated comedy Hotel Transylvania. Hotel Transylvania the game is set to hit store shelves this September. Hotel Transylvania the film will be released in theaters nationwide on September 28, 2012.
Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but everything could change for the overprotective dad when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Featuring a wide variety of locations, puzzles, and boss battles galore, the game creates an imaginative and fun way to interact with the movie characters.
Developed by Way Forward, Hotel Transylvania for Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS is rated “E10+” for Everyone 10 and up by the ESRB. For additional information about GameMill’s line of products, please visit: www.game-mill.com.
The film is Directed by Genndy Tartakovsky. Produced by Michelle Murdocca. Screenplay by Peter Baynham and Robert Smigel. Story by Todd Durham and Daniel Hageman & Kevin Hageman.
