EA enlists G.I. Joe for games tied to The Rise of Cobra

Electronic Arts announced the development of G.I. Joe console and handheld games for the summer to coincide with the theatrical release of G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, a live-action movie on Aug. 7.

EA will unveil a first look at its G.I. Joe video game at Hasbro's Showroom at the New York Toy Fair on Feb. 15-17.

The G.I. Joe video game will feature an exclusive storyline that picks up where the live-action movie leaves off, allowing players to re-create and re-live the greatest moments from the film, cartoon series and action-figure toy line. The game will feature 12 G.I. Joe characters, each with unique abilities and weapons, in intense single-screen co-op mode, allowing two players to unite as a team to fight the powers of the COBRA organization.

The game is under development for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, PSP, Nintendo DS and mobile devices.
