Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One to be released on gaming network
BOLLYWOOD is going virtual – thanks to Shah Rukh Khan and Sony PlayStation.
The Bollywood superstar has joined forces with gaming giants Sony to create a PlayStation game for his forthcoming release Ra.One.
The game will be made exclusively on key PlayStation platforms of PS2 and PS3 and is being worked on by developers in London.
Khan is overseeing much of the project and has developed the storyline to see that there is an intrinsic connection between the game and the film.
The game will allow players to play as the key characters of the film: Ra.One or G.One. Beyond these two characters, a few other key characters will also be included in the game. The film characters have been replicated closely for looks and animation and use the actual voice-overs of Shah Rukh Khan.
Atindriya Bose, PlayStation Country Manager for India, said: “We have always wanted to bring Bollywood IPs on the PlayStation platform as the way of connecting to Indian audience. RA.ONE has the right mix of action, environment and imagination that is required to make a good PlayStation game and with Shah Rukh Khan’s immense passion and understanding of PlayStation games, we have chanced upon a very unique opportunity of a great game with Indian IP.”
‘Ra.One – The Game’ will be rolled out in the India market and other key markets towards the end of September in close co-ordination with the actual film launch date.
