Sony Computer partners with Shah Rukh Khan's Red Chillies for RA.One PlayStation game
The storyline for this game has been developed by Shah Rukh Khan himself thereby creating an intrinsic connection between the game and the movie. The game has been developed exclusively on key PlayStation platforms of PS2 and PS3 (through PSN download).
Under the guidance of the SCEE team in London and in close co-ordination with the Red Chillies team for film characterisations and VFX, the game is being developed locally in Mumbai by Trine Games. It is being positioned as a prequel to the movie and introduces the keycharacters of the film and their various super-powers showcased in the film.
Atindriya Bose, Country Manager – PlayStation said, “We have always wanted to bring Bollywood IPs on PlayStation platform as the way of connecting to Indian audience. RA.ONE has the right mix of action, environment and imagination that is required to make a good PlayStation game, and with Shah Rukh Khan's immense passion and understanding of PlayStation games, we have chanced upon a very unique opportunity of a great game with Indian IP.”
The game provides an opportunity to the players to play as the key characters of the film: RA.ONE or G.One. Beyond these two characters, a few other key characters will also be included in the game. The film characters have been replicated closely for looks and animation and use the actual voice-overs from Shah Rukh Khan.
‘RA.ONE - The Game' will be rolled out in the India market and other key markets towards the end of September ’11 in close co-ordination with the actual film launch date. This will allow people to get an interactive sneak preview of the superpowers to expect and play in a complete sci-fi environment.
Displaying 6 unique characters and more than 20 game play environments from the ‘RA.ONE Universe’, the game entails multi-player action levels, including a robust set of assorted game mode options; it allows gamers to participate in infinite numbers of challenging matches.
