Acclaim snaps up Alias

Acclaim announced today that they signed a deal with Disney Interactive to for the publishing rights to ABC's critically acclaimed TV show Alias.

Anyway, according to Acclaim Alias, the game, will be "a third-person action adventure... that allows players to step into the role of the series' lead character, Sydney Bristow. Bristow must use her cunning, extensive knowledge of martial arts and array of high-tech gadgetry to accomplish dangerous missions. Alias will encompass all of the key elements behind the series' success, including high-action combat, stealth missions and time-based objectives, espionage, intriguing plot twists, high-tech weaponry and stunning gameplay locations that span the globe."

Evan Stein, Vice President of Marketing for Acclaim, said, "Alias is one of the strongest new TV entertainment properties and is filled with great characters, rich storylines and incredible action that lends itself perfectly to interactive entertainment. We are thrilled to have Alias join our portfolio of world-renowned licenses."

Acclaim plans to release Alias sometime in the Fall of 2003 "across all next-generation platforms."
