THQ adapting Pixar's 'Up' for every gaming platform ever

THQ, the unparalleled master of licensed gaming adaptations, is adding another notch to the ol' development belt. In a recent press release, the company announced its Heavy Iron Studios branch will be bringing Disney Pixar's upcoming animated film, Up, to a gaming console near you. That is, assuming you live near an Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, DS, PSP, PC or Mac.

It will likely be in the same vein gameplay and quality-wise as Heavy Iron's other Pixar projects, Ratatouille and Wall-E. According to the press release, the game will follow septugenarian Carl Fredricksen and his young accomplice, Russell, as they fall into all manner of wacky hijinx in the undiscovered jungles of South America. So basically, it's like Uncharted, but with less mercenary murdering. Or maybe more! We don't know. We haven't seen the movie yet.
