AGOURA HILLS, Calif. --(Business Wire)-- Jun 01, 2009 THQ Inc. (NASDAQ:THQI) today announced plans to bring a new video game based on Disney Pixar’s highly successful Cars film, Cars Race-O-Rama, to all major systems worldwide beginning in fall 2009. Cars Race-O-Rama is currently in development across six game systems, including Wii™ video game system, Nintendo DS™, the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PLAYSTATION®3 computer entertainment system, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system. Cars Race-O-Rama will mark the third installment in THQ’s highly successful Cars video game franchise, which has shipped more than 13 million units worldwide to date. In addition, the game will be showcased at the upcoming E3 Expo 2009 being held in the Los Angeles Convention Center.

In Cars Race-O-Rama, players will join Lightning McQueen and Chick Hicks in Radiator Springs as they prepare their academy of student racers to compete in the Race-O-Rama Exhibition. Players will encounter 12 new playable characters making their video game debut. A new and improved Lightning McQueen will come fully equipped with special racing kits, allowing him to better maneuver brand new, action-packed tracks that will take players to metro city streets, the Baja desert and sandy beaches. In addition, players are now able to modify Lightning McQueen’s wheels, rims, hood, side skirt, rear bumper, spoiler and paint with special customization features, giving Lightning a personalized style and look that has never been seen before. As players compete in this high-speed, racing adventure game, they will be able to utilize Lightning McQueen’s newly designed drifting abilities and perform “Kachow” poses for enthusiastic reporters and fans encountered throughout the game. Cars Race-O-Rama will also feature multiplayer mini-games based on Disney Pixar’s “Cars Toons,” a series of animated shorts that are currently being aired on the Disney Channel.
