D3 Does Astro Boy

Only one robotic child stands between Metro City and the evil President Stone's robot army in Astro Boy: The Video Game, coming this October from D3 Publisher.

Astro Boy: The Video Game for the Nintendo Wii, DS, PSP, and PlayStation 2 is the game adaptation of Imagi Studios' new CG-animated movie, being released internationally this October. Astro Boy journeys throughout Metro City and the mysterious Surface, taking on hordes of robots using his traditional weapons: Finger Lasers, Arm Cannon, Drill Attacks, and my personal favorite - Butt Machine Guns. Developed by High Voltage Software, the game promises intuitive combat and flight, along with a slew of classic Astro Boy unlockables.

I'll have to wait until I see more from the game before getting excited. While my nostalgia gland says yes, my movie tie-in gland says no. Remember back when film animators used to actually draw? Those were the days.
