Action Adventure Game Will Take Players to the Unexplored Worlds of South America To Encounter Exotic Animals and Villainous Enemies

AGOURA HILLS, Calif. – March 10, 2009 – THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) today announced its plans to bring the Up video game, based on the highly anticipated Disney•Pixar film, to all major consoles worldwide beginning in spring 2009 in North America, and from summer 2009 in Europe. Up is currently in development across seven game systems, including Wii™ home video game system, Nintendo DS™, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, and Games for Windows® and Mac.

Development for the Up video game is being led by THQ’s Heavy Iron Studios, the same creative team responsible for the video games based on Disney•Pixar’s Ratatouille and WALL●E. In 2007, Ratatouille received recognition from The International Animated Film Society’s annual Annie Awards as the “Best Animated Video Game.”

About the Up Video Game
The Up video game will take players on an exotic adventure with Carl Fredricksen and his young sidekick, Wilderness Explorer Russell, as they set off on a wild journey through the undiscovered jungles of South America. Players will be able to experience all four main characters from the movie - Carl, Russell, Dug the lovable dog or Kevin the prehistoric bird - while playing as a single-player or with a friend cooperatively throughout the entire game. Players will encounter exciting, new environments as they navigate through treacherous jungle terrains, battle dangerous creatures and trek the slippery slopes of the Amazonian Tepuis. In addition, the game also features multi-player game modes, including an epic level that will allow up to four players to compete in aerial combat.
