G.I. Joe Game On the Way 37

Electronic Arts has revealed that they are developing a G.I. Joe video game that will be launched alongside the G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra movie later this year. According to the announcement, the game "picks up where the live-action movie leaves off, allowing players to re-create and re-live the greatest moments from the film, cartoon series and action figure toy line." The game is planned for the PS2, PS3, PSP, mobile devices, Xbox 360, Wii, and DS. EA confirmed that there would be a co-op mode, but it's unknown whether there will be an online component.

    The cartoon GI Joe is what is remembered by most people in the age bracket they are targetting. We grew up watching that cartoon. Plus, a movie and/or video game about the older GI Joe would just be "Generic War Movie". It might be good, but as far as I know, there's nothing that really makes it GI Joe since there were only a few characters and all pretty generic.
