Product Details:

The Up video game will take players on an exotic adventure with Carl Fredricksen and his young sidekick, Wilderness Explorer Russell, as they set off on a wild journey through the undiscovered jungles of South America. Players will be able to experience all four main characters from the movie -- Carl, Russell, Dug the lovable dog or Kevin the prehistoric bird -- while playing as a single-player or with a friend cooperatively throughout the entire game. Players will encounter exciting, new environments as they navigate through treacherous jungle terrains, battle dangerous creatures and trek the slippery slopes of the Amazonian Tepuis. In addition, the game also features multi-player game modes, including an epic level that will allow up to four players to compete in aerial combat.

  • Developer Pedigree: From the key leads of the critically acclaimed DS game Henry Hatsworth and the Puzzling Adventure (IGN's Platform Game of the Year).
  • Genre Mash-Up: Platform adventure on the top screen mixed with a deep pet raising game on the Touch Screen.
  • Raise & Evolve Chomp: Train your monster companion in the Touch Screen Pet Sanctuary. Give Chomp food, equipment and toys so that it grows, evolves and gains new abilities to assist Ellie's adventure. Chomp has approximately 30 unique forms with different attributes and abilities including attacks, shields, bombs, and bounces, among others. Chomp's abilities are directly related to how you raise him so nurture him with the utmost care.
  • Chomp Will Do Your Bidding: Ellie can summon Chomp from the bottom screen to the top screen at any time. Use Chomp to help fight enemies and leverage his abilities to access new areas.
  • Explore Monstrous Worlds: Battle through 5 non-linear worlds and face off against a menacing kid-monster duo at the end of each. A Wicked Treehouse, Monster Nightclub, Ancient Ruins and even a Monster Express Train await you and your monster friend.
  • Pamper Your Pet: Collect money throughout the game then use those earnings to shop for food, toys or equipment for your monster pet. How you use Chomp in battle and what items you give it--including weapons, pick-ups and power-ups--affect how it evolves. Defeated enemies may even drop items that Ellie can pick up to use for Chomp later on.
  • Pump Ellie Up: Apply earnings toward new abilities or stat enhancements for Ellie to make her a more formidable fighter.
  • Epic Battles: Go head to head with giant boss monsters and their kid-king masters! String together devastating combos and throw down some super attacks to get the upper hand.
  • Conquer Thy Enemy: A myriad of inspired enemies await defeat. They fly, burrow, rocket, jump, teleport, crush and much more in lots of devious and challenging ways.
  • Acquire Runes: Defeat certain boss characters or discover hidden areas to earn runes as you play. Gain permanent upgrades to give Ellie additional abilities like dash, roll and wall jump to aid her on the adventure.

    Rated out of 5 by from Light-hearted action/adventure Based on the previews I've read and the videos I've seen, this is going to be a great game. Most people write it off as a kiddie game when they here you play as a girl with a pet monster and you have to defeat the evil kid kings. I say don't underestimate this title. The game plays like a Castlevania or older Metroid title. You explore 5 areas with plenty of backtracking once you gain new abilities that will let you access places that you couldn't before. On top of that, there is an interesting pet raising aspect. Depending on what items you have your monster eat or train with he will evolve and gain new abilities and forms. I eagerly await this title's release.

    Rated out of 5 by from Fun Genre-Blending Game! I first got information about Monster Tale from Nintendo Power and was instantly intrigued. While pet raising isn't all that intense, Chomp's different evolutions seem to change the gameplay often. I wish there was a better pre-order incentive gift (there don't seem to be many lately) like a stuffed Chomp, but I think I'll still get this game.

    Rated out of 5 by from Awesome and fun looking I've watched all the videos for this game checked out all the screen shots and i've fallen in love with this game the story seems great and i love the main characters. I do wish they'd create a better bonus for the game like a small plush chomp but hey 5% off everything in the in-game store is still pretty good and a color change can change things up. All in all though i'm psyched about this game and i'll be there on realease to get my preorder
