20th Century Fox is joining forces with video games publisher THQ to help boost the merchandise programme for upcoming 3D animation Rio even further.

THQ will launch Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo DS and Wii titles on April 12th, just ahead of the April 15th release of the film.

Features will include the option for up to four players to compete with each other in 40 mini-games as one of six playable characters from the film. Gamers can compete in five unique modes as they journey through Rio to win first place in the ceremony at the Carnaval.

The title will also feature 'jump in, jump out' gameplay.

"Rio is one of the biggest family film events of the year and is tailor made to be enjoyed through a video game that will bring the same experience to gamers of all ages," said Gary Rosenfeld, SVP, new media at Fox Consumer Products.
