Vivendi Universal Games today announced its talent line-up for the highly anticipated Super Hero game from Sierra Entertainment, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Leading voice-over cast members include: comic and sci-fi fanboy favorite Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Hulk’s notorious rival Emil Blonsky and the Abomination; Neal McDonough, the voice of Bruce Banner in the late-90’s cartoon series The Incredible Hulk, as Hulk’s human genius alter ego; and actor Richard Moll as Devil Hulk, the embodiment of all that is evil within Banner’s own mind.
The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction is further brought to life through an original storyline written by Eisner Award-winning comic book writer Paul Jenkins (Hulk, Spider-Man) and high quality art created by signature comic artist Bryan Hitch (The Ultimates, Ultimates 2.)
“The authenticity, compelling storyline and unbelievable power and freedom found in ‘The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction’ create the consummate experience for Hulk fans and core gamers,” said Ed Zobrist, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing, VU Games. “Add the tremendous talent of our voice-over actors, sound effects design and musical teams, and we’re delivering the best Super Hero video game ever!”
Academy Award-winning sound effects designers, DaneTracks, widely known for its work on “The Matrix” film, helped create the sounds of ultimate devastation and annihilation that players will experience within “The Incredible Hulk” gameplay world. To develop the sound design, DaneTracks conducted a junkyard foley session to record sounds of cars being dropped on each other and ripped in half, to ensure the sounds of “ultimate destruction” in the game were authentic.
Acclaimed composer Bill Brown created the impressive soundtrack for The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction. Brown worked with the Los Angeles Orchestra to perform the original score. Brown is currently the composer for the hit CBS television series, “CSI: NY,” and his previous credits include composing and producing music for feature films such as “Any Given Sunday,” “Ali” and “Finding Forrester.”
Developed by Radical Entertainment, The Incredible Hulk: Ultimate Destruction is slated to hit store shelves this August for the PlayStationÂ®2 computer entertainment system, the XboxÂ® video game system and entertainment system from Microsoft and Nintendo GameCube(TM). Based on The Incredible Hulk character franchise from Marvel Enterprises, this action-adventure game will be available for a suggested retail price of $49.99 and with an ESRB “T” for Teen rating.
