FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SANTA MONICA, Calif.– Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3)– July 10, 2007– Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc., today revealed the full voice cast for Hellboy™ The Science of Evil (working title), its upcoming video game adaptation of the smash hit entertainment property for the Xbox 360™ video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. In addition to Ron Perlman, who portrayed Hellboy in the 2004 feature film, Selma Blair and Doug Jones will reprise their roles from the motion picture as Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien to lend their voices to the game.
As Liz Sherman and Abe Sapien, respectively, Selma Blair and Doug Jones created enduring identities for their characters in the popular 2004 Hellboy feature film as they battled alongside Ron Perlman’s imposing portrayal of the crimson-skinned warrior. Featured prominently in some of the most successful films of the last 10 years, Blair is well known for her roles in Legally Blonde and Cruel Intentions, while Jones recently lended his talents to the Academy Award-winning Pan’s Labyrinth and Adaptation.
“With voice acting from Ron Perlman, Selma Blair and Doug Jones, and creative guidance from director Guillermo del Toro and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, Hellboy The Science of Evil is shaping up to be one of the most faithful video game adaptations of an entertainment property of all-time,” said Brian Christian, Vice President of Product Development at Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc.”Drawing from the mythology of both the comic books and the motion picture, we are able to tell an original story featuring all the characters, settings and visceral gameplay that fans could ever ask for in a Hellboy game.”
Hellboy The Science of Evil lets players take control of Hellboy’s incredible supernatural powers as they battle to overcome a terrible Nazi scheme. Wielding the massive Right Hand of Doom, players will be able to wreak havoc on both the enemies that stand in the way as well as the game’s detailed levels, using the rubble they leave in their wake as weapons for even more bone crushing power. With the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 versions of the game, players will be able to team up with a friend to battle through the game cooperatively via online play as a number of characters from the Hellboy universe, each with their own unique fighting style.
Developed by Krome Studios, Hellboy The Science of Evil is planned for release on the Xbox 360, PLAYSTATION 3 system and PSP system this fall. For more information on the game, please visit:
