I am excited to bring you a new behind-the-scenes video on “Cars 2: The Video Game,” which we are exclusively debuting alongside our fellow Pixar blogs. The video details just how involved Pixar was with the development of the game. I have written extensively about the strong partnership between Pixar and Avalanche, the developer of the game. As you will see in the video, Pixar brought Avalanche in very early in the production of Cars 2, so the film and the game evolved alongside each other. Pixar employees such as Story Supervisor Nathan Stanton, Animator Adam Burke, and Supervising Technical Director Apurva Shah were all on-board in helping extend Pixar’s vision into the video game world. Check out the fascinating video in hi-def here!
As I mentioned in my review of the game last month, playing it is loads of fun. The multiplayer modes are slick, fast-paced, exciting, and unpredictable – all characteristics that are necessary for a great racer!
“Cars 2: The Video Game” is available now for the XBox 360, Wii, Playstation 3, DS, and PC/MAC.
