Pacific Rim is one of this year's major cinema blockbusters and it has been revealed that there will be a video game tie-in for it, which will no doubt be released at around the same time.

It's to be developed and published by Yuke's, the studio behind the annual WWE licensed releases. The upcoming WWE title is still being made by the developer, but it now works under Take-Two , which picked up the license after the demise of THQ.

Pacific Rim is about an alien attack which threatens the very existence of the planet and in order to fend them off the humans take control of giant mechanoids. It's likely the gameplay will centre around these gigantic robots.

There's no official release date for the game yet, though the movie is out on 12th July in the US so we'd expect it to be around then. As of right now, we don't even know which platforms this one is coming to.

The trailer to the movie is below for those who'd like to check it out. If you ask us, the voice of the computer sounds a lot like GLaDOS from Portal.
