ComicCon 2009: Alice down DS, Wii, PC rabbit hole March 2010

Posted By | On 18th, Sep. 2009

The 2000 horror adventure game American McGee’s Alice depicts the heroine of the original Lewis Carroll story as an adult who fights her way back to sanity while trapped in her imagination. Nine years later, Disney announced today a slate of games that will also depict a mature Alice, though they will be more whimsical and less morbid than their Electronic Arts counterpart.

Disney pulls a rabbit out of its hat for the first game screenshot.

Developed by Spyro’s Etranges Libellules in France, Alice in Wonderland will be based on Tim Burton’s upcoming film of the same name, due out on the Nintendo DS, Wii, and PC during the week of the movie’s March 5 release next year. The film will star Johnny Depp, Helen Bonham Carter, and Stephen Fry. Mia Wasikowska will star as Alice, and the movie takes place after Carroll’s original Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass stories. Disney will also release mobile games for the franchise on the iPhone and iTouch in 2010, with a promo app out this December.

The Wii and PC editions will follow the plot of the film, allowing players to join up with such characters as the Mad Hatter and Cheshire Cat to help Alice as she fights the Red Queen and Jabberwocky to return Wonderland–now called “Underland”–to its previous glory. The DS version touts an exclusive playable character and unique art style.
