505 has unveiled the first details of Grease: The Official Video Game, with the emphasis, appropriately enough, on singing and dancing.
The title is due on Wii and DS this September, as one of the most popular and enduring entertainment franchises of the past 30 plus years finally makes its debut in the games arena.
The Wii version will be packed with challenges and competitions based around singing and dancing to the movie's, let's face it, quite brilliant soundtrack – as well as racing down Thunder Road and celebrating with the T-Birds and Pink Ladies at the Rydell High Graduation carnival. It will be compatible with up to two microphones and the Wii Balance Board.
There will be also be a Story Mode in which players can fix up Greased Lightnin' (which is a real pussy wagon, incidentally) or try to win Sandy's affections. But essentially it's a party game, with up to eight players (split into two teams) able to compete at once.
On the DS and DSi, players again dance their way through some of the movie's iconic scenes, following Sandy and Danny on their high school journey. They learn the officially licensed songs and choreographed moves.
They can also use the camera function on the DSi to upload their face to their favourite character.
Grease will be previewed on 505's peachy keen booth at E3. Official hands on previews are available by appointment.
