Milton Keynes, 24th February, 2010 – 505 Games today announced it has selected two developers to work on the eagerly anticipated Grease video game. Based on Paramount Pictures’ classic film, UK developer Zoë Mode will develop the Wii version and Big Head Games will develop the DS version.
“For this project we knew we had to employ developers of a certain calibre in order to really bring the Grease magic to the world of video games,” commented Ian Howe, Managing Director, 505 Games. “In Zoë Mode and Big Head Games, we feel we have found the talent required to give this film the game it deserves.”
