MIDWAY´S HIGHLY ANTICIPATED THE ANT BULLY VIDEOGAME MARCHES TO STORES NATIONWIDE

Videogame Release For Multiple Platforms Precedes July 28th Theatrical Debut of the Animated Family Adventure from Warner Bros. Pictures

CHICAGO – July 24, 2006 – Midway Games Inc., a leading interactive entertainment industry publisher and developer, today announced that it has shipped The Ant Bully videogame, licensed by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, Nintendo GameCube™, Game Boy® Advance and personal computers. A Nintendo Wii™ version of The Ant Bully videogame is scheduled to be released in November.

Backed by a multi-million dollar marketing campaign complementing the feature film release, The Ant Bully videogame follows the general storyline of the film, in which a young boy named Lucas is magically shrunk down to ant size and made to live like an ant in the colony as he battles, explores and forges new friendships in his new ant world.

"Midway´s relationship with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment on The Ant Bully is an important part of our company´s expansion into the younger gaming market," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "We´ve timed our marketing campaign and launch for the game closely with that of the film, allowing players to help an ant–sized Lucas on his quest to help save the ant colony as soon as the movie premieres."

I just saw the commercial for this game, and it said Wii on it. Woot. First time I've seen Wii on T.V. At least on a channel other than G4, this was Nickelodeon, I was watching All Grown Up.
