Wii Getting Attacked By Movies In 3D

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

You know, the kind with glasses

Ever seen a movie in 3D and wished you could shoot the crap out of everything on screen?

Developed for Wii by Panic Button Games and published by Majesco, Attack of the Movies 3D wants to put you right in the thick of the action of your favorite types of movies. Want to shoot aliens? Boom! Fight the machine army? Ka-pow! Battle underwater critters? Torped-ouch!

It even comes with four sets of 3D glasses so you and three other people can play and wave your hands in front of you, futilely trying to grab what we all know isn't there.

Without screens it's tough to judge exactly what type of shooter this is, but our Batman-rivaling powers of deduction peg it as on-rails. Expect to see the game on European shelves sometime this summer. Want to see the press release? Bam! Down there.


Re-live the Greatest Action Movies of All Time in the First 3D Shooter for Wii™

BRISTOL, UK. The greatest action scenes in cinematic history come to life as Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced Attack of the Movies 3D. The first-ever 3D shooter designed exclusively for Wii™, Attack of the Movies 3D transports players to six fantastic movie-themed worlds where they will battle large alien space cruisers, shoot underwater monsters, join the resistance against the machines and more. Packaged with four pairs of 3D glasses to support four-player multiplayer action, and featuring classic enemies culled from the annals of film history, this inspired 3D shooter jumps right out of your television and into your living room.

“We all dream about being the hero in our favourite action movies,” said Gui Karyo, Executive Vice President of Operations for Majesco. “Attack of the Movies 3D lets you live that experience out with a realism and dimensionality previously only found in movie theaters.”

In Attack of the Movies 3D, players become an integral part of movie scenes they can typically only watch. Each scene features genre-based ultimate weapons to engage enemies, including zombie-slaying shotguns, automatic laser cannons and more. In addition, branching paths, changing enemy attack patterns, unique areas and environmental challenges ensure that players never experience the same fight twice.

Developed by Panic Button Games Inc., Attack of the Movies 3D is expected to be released in Europe during summer 2010. For additional information about Majesco’s exciting line of products, please visit or

I rather suspect that this will turn out to be a particularly uninspired on-rails shooter that sells by virtue of its gimmick.

This could either be excellent or woeful. There is no middle ground. I'm gonna lean towards 'woeful' on first impressions. Or they just have a really bad press release writer.

I remember that robot fighting game in 3D that didn't turn out very well... here's hoping this one does better. However, another on-rails shooter... Ill just have to wait and see.

I don't get too excited for 3-D films (still haven't bothered seeing Avatar), so the 3-D games get the same reaction from me..."meh...". I am somewhat interested in trying that Toy Story Mania game if it ever gets down really cheap (I'm thinking $15 or so), because I believe it is based after a ride at Disney in California.

I remember Sly 3 had 3-D parts with 3-D was crap(but the game itself was good)

In my opinion 3-D is a wasted idea. I have never happened across a working pair of 3D glasses and in stead of having the desired effect i get a head ache from watching a film in doubled vision.

Is this game going to use those red and blue lens 3d glasses? Because if it does, then this is going to fail. It's an interesting idea, but nobody has been able to do it effectively on a video game console. Toy Story Mania is a step in the right direction, but your better off going on the actual ride at Disney World than playing the home version. Oh, and cool video diego! It would be interesting to see a game that uses head tracking rather than gimmicky glasses.

im the only one i think that played and liked jim power the lost dimention in 3d.

3D like in theaters is not the kind of 3D you will get at home. At home you still need the reb/blue yellow/purple whatever color glasses. The technology isnt there to replicate that experience at home cheaply. Therefore the red/blue glasses is what you will be getting if you get this game. Also if you haven't seen Avatar, what is your problem? It is one of the most beautiful and engaging movies ever. See it in 3D.

It's Majesco they pride themselves on crap, I mean "casual" games. Which some how means crap in many circles. The only Majesco games I'm at all interested in are Dawn of Heroes and Flip's Twisted World.

Don't knock Majesco too hard, they did give us BlastWorks and will be treating us to Data East Arcade Classics!
