Brash Entertainment has announced that this December will see the release of a new Alvin and the Chipmunks rhythm/music game, set to be released alongside the forthcoming film, featuring the Chipmunks playing Blink 182 and REM songs at venues from Burning Man to the ultimate "Rockathonapalooza."
Brash says the game will follow Alvin, Simon, and Theodore as they work their way, Guitar Hero style, from smaller venues like school proms to Burning Man and forest arenas to Rockathonapalooza.
The publisher says the rhythm game will feature some 40 cult and chart-topping songs from several decades like Blink 182's All The Small Things, Run DMC's It's Tricky and REM's Shiny Happy People all performed in Chipmunk style.
Brash was co-founded by Mitch Davis and Nicholas Longano, both veterans of in-game advertising company Massive Incorporated, as well as Thomas Tull, executive producer of the film 300, and media and technology industry entrepreneur Bert Ellis.
The Alvin and the Chipmunks game is expected to be released on PS2, Wii, PC, and the Nintendo DS on December 4th, ten days ahead of the film's release.
"This holiday, Alvin, Simon and Theodore have been entirely redesigned with a bold new look for the launch of their first live action film and video game debut," said Ross Bagdasarian, CEO of Bagdasarian Productions.
