Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has today announced Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole – The Videogame, for the Nintendo Wii. The game is due to be released in September 2010, just prior to the release of the 3D fantasy family-adventure film of the same name in October 2010.

Fans of the film and Kathryn Lasky’s popular Guardians of Ga’Hoole book series will get the chance to join an unlikely band of heroes as they take on the role of a Guardian, a winged warrior and protector of the owl world, in an epic story of good versus evil. During the course of the game, players will get to customise and control their owl as they undertake an epic journey across mythic terrains. Here’s Samantha Ryan, Senior Vice President, Production and Development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, talking about the game:

“Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole – The Videogame gives players a fun, new gameplay experience capturing the excitement of owl fight and flight with intuitive and smooth controls. Players will be able to do much more than fly, as they race, attack and grow their abilities for a more immersive experience throughout the expansive environments beautifully depicted in the game.”
