Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. today announced the release of Stuart Little 2™ for the PS one™ and PlayStation® game consoles. The original Stuart Little movie from Sony Pictures Entertainment, based on the novel by E.B. White, took the world by storm when it was released in 1999. Now, the biggest little star in Hollywood makes his PlayStation debut in an exciting action-adventure game based upon the new film of the same name, which opens in theaters nationwide on July 19. Featuring a clever storyline and entertaining characters, this exciting escapade showcases colorful environments, crisp graphics, amusing puzzles and challenging gameplay throughout seven massive environments taken directly from the upcoming film.
Developed by Magenta Software, Stuart Little 2 takes gamers on a rip-roaring journey through a variety of Manhattan locations. Stuart Little embarks on an exciting mission, with help from his new friend, a yellow canary named Margalo, to recover stolen jewelry and learn the true meaning of friendship. Exciting hidden clips from the film, and 12 action-packed mini-games involving skateboarding, mine-carting and flying airplanes enhance the gameplay and will provide gamers with endless hours of exciting action. A fun-filled game showcasing courage, friendship, kindness and trust, Stuart Little 2 will appeal to all gamers big and small this summer.
"We are thrilled to bring the adored character of Stuart Little to life with Stuart Little 2, adding another must-have family title to the PlayStation catalog," said Ami Blaire, director, product marketing, Sony Computer Entertainment America Inc. "The charming characters, clever storyline, colorful environments and vibrant animations are sure to make this game a huge hit with parents and children this summer."
In this heroic adventure, players are in control of Stuart and must navigate him through seven challenging levels based on the feature film's locales in the heart of New York City. Players will explore the Little's immense house, take Stuart on a swim in the aquarium and race through Central Park as they assist him on his mission to recover the stolen jewelry. Gamers will find their way to the stolen jewels by having Stuart interact with Margalo to receive hints and bonus jewelry. Stuart must use his reliable "tail-whip" spin attack to defend himself against the dangerous and deadly wrath of numerous larger-than-life spiders, ants and wind-up robots.
