King Kong kongfirmed

Ubisoft aping around with one of cinema's greatest monsters. Ook

Ubisoft has announced that it's currently developing a King Kong game, the publisher confirming news scratching the armpit of rumour back in April this year.

King Kong the game is heading to "all platforms" and is based on Peter "Lord of the Rings" Jackson's movie remake and will release alongside the film in December 2005.

Development is being handled by the team behind Ubisoft's Beyond Good & Evil in Montpellier, France, the studio "creating a game that will reflect the visual interpretation, character dynamics and dramatic narrative of Jackson's epic film."

No real gameplay details yet, but our fondness of apes and monkeys knows no bounds so we'll be endeavouring to get more info as soon as humanly possible.

For anyone not familiar of the story of King Kong, it tells the moving, romantic - hah, who are we kidding - tale of an enormous ape captured in the wild and taken to the civilised world where it meets a bloody end.
