THQ, Twentieth Century Fox Tie On RIO

Agoura Hills-based videogame maker THQ said today along with Twentieth Century Fox Consumer Products that they are releasing a new set of games based on the recent RIO movie. RIO is set to debut on April 15th. THQ said it will ship the RIO video game on the Xbox 360 video game, PlayStation 3, Wii, and Nintendo DS. Business details of the arrangement between THQ and Twentieth Century Fox were not announced. The firm said the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii games allow four players to compete together in "mini-games"; the Nintendo DS and Nintendo DSi versions offer a "completely different game" than the console games, focused on music rhythms.
