Publisher Capcom announced the development of Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law for Wii. The game is expected to be released on November 13 at an MSRP of 39.99 USD.
Players will tackle five court cases as Harvey Birdman, "a third-rate superhero turned third-rate defense attorney charged with exonerating parodied classic cartoon characters," Capcom described. Fans of the animated television show of the same name will find the voice cast and familiar locations featured in the game.
"In order to prove his client's innocence," Capcom stated, "Harvey must peruse the scene of the crime, gather evidence, talk with other cartoon characters, occasionally have drinks with opposing council, and of course, tear holes - no matter how ridiculous - in the testimony provided by the witness for the prosecution."
Harvey Birdman: Attorney at Law, created by Cartoon Network division Williams Street, first aired in 2001 alongside the debut of Turner Broadcasting's Adult Swim network of shows. The animated comedy, which ended this past July, casted parodied versions of classic Hanna-Barbera cartoon characters like Fred Flintstone and Blue Falcon. Adult Swim airs repeats of the show from Tuesday to Saturday during most weeks.
