Reliance Home Video and Games has announced it will be distributing Dreamworks-based Namco games in India, starting with Madagascar 3: The Video Game, which will be launched around June 8, for Xbox 360 and PS3, for Rs. 2,799. The game is based on the movie, Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted, which will release on June 8.
All of Namco Bandai’s other games will continue to be distributed by E-Xpress Interactive in India. The Dreamworks deal that Reliance has secured with Namco is a result of the Reliance-Dreamworks partnership, where Reliance ADAG has invested roughly $325 million. The three Dreamworks games due in 2012, including Madagascar 3, were developed by D3, which is owned by Namco.
Madagascar 3: The Video Game will be available from various Indian online retailers, as well as shops such as Landmark and Crossword. In the game, players will visit various locations across Europe, as one of the Madagascar characters, with action and adventure gameplay elements.
In related news, Reliance Home Video is also the exclusive India licensee for the films of Warner Bros, Paramount Studios, and Universal Studios.
