Madagascar 3: The Video Game coming this October

The loveable animal heroes of the Madagascar franchise will be returning to consoles this October in Madagascar 3: The Video Game from D3Publisher.

Based on the forthcoming movie sequel Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, the new title will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS.

Playing as Alex the lion, Marty the zebra, Gloria the hippo and Melman the giraffe, fans will travel across Europe as part of a touring circus, performing in spectacular shows while carrying out zany missions for the militaristic Penguins.

The game will feature modes for multiple players and will include all of the most popular characters from the films, from old favourites like King Julien to new faces like Stefano the sea lion and Vitaly the Siberian tiger.

Chris Hewish, global interactive head for DreamWorks Animation, said: "This videogame brings to life the film's Madagascar-style circus fun in a truly exciting and memorable gameplay experience that will thrill kids and families alike."

The cast of Madagascar have appeared in numerous games over the years, including last year's The Penguins of Madagascar: Dr Blowhole Returns (Again!).
