Such a lovely place
To coincide with the upcoming release of Sony Pictures Animation's animated comedy Hotel Transylvania, GameMill Entertainment has announced a 3DS / DS game of the same name.
Don't look so terrified — WayForward is on development duties. We're promised a wide variety of locations, puzzles and boss battles, but that's about all we know about Hotel Transylvania for now.
In the film, Dracula invites some friends to his daughter's 118th birthday party at his holiday resort, Hotel Transylvania: a place where monsters can relax without irritating humans hanging around. With the Invisible Man, the Werewolves and Frankenstein's Monster wandering about, there're bound to be some mishaps and perhaps a little bit of mild peril when an ordinary human accidentally finds the place.
Hotel Transylvania is out on 28th September; we'd expect the 3DS / DS games to be out around the same time.

Players Set Out on an Adventure as Film Inspired Characters in a Fun-Filled Game
Minneapolis, MN- July 23, 2012- GameMill Entertainment, an independent publisher of entertaining mass-market video games, announced today its plans to release Hotel Transylvania for the Nintendo DS™ and Nintendo 3DS™ hand-held systems, an action-adventure video game based on Sony Pictures Animation’s upcoming animated comedy Hotel Transylvania. Hotel Transylvania the game is set to hit store shelves this September. Hotel Transylvania the film will be released in theaters nationwide on September 28, 2012.
Welcome to Hotel Transylvania, Dracula’s lavish five-stake resort, where monsters and their families can live it up, free to be the monsters they are without humans to bother them. On one special weekend, Dracula has invited some of his best friends – Frankenstein and his wife, the Mummy, the Invisible Man, the Werewolf family, and more – to celebrate his beloved daughter Mavis’s 118th birthday. For Drac, catering to all of these legendary monsters is no problem – but everything could change for the overprotective dad when one ordinary guy stumbles on the hotel and takes a shine to Mavis.
Featuring a wide variety of locations, puzzles, and boss battles galore, the game creates an imaginative and fun way to interact with the movie characters.
Developed by Way Forward, Hotel Transylvania for Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS is rated “E10+” for Everyone 10 and up by the ESRB. For additional information about GameMill’s line of products, please visit: www.game-mill.com.
