Vivendi Games have today confirmed that Leisure Suit Larry will be returning to the gaming world in the form of Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust. The game which will appear on XBOX 360 and PlayStation 3 has the writing talents of Allen Covert (Happy Madison Productions) and an All-Star cast of actors and actresses, including Jay Mohr (Last Comic Standing), Dave Attell (Insomniac), Shannon Elizabeth (American Pie), Carmen Electra (Starsky and Hutch), Artie Lange (Mad TV), Patrick Warburton (Family Guy), Jeffrey Lynch (The 40 Year Old Virgin) and Josh Keaton (The Spectacular Spider-Man) as the voice of Larry Loveage.
The story behind this new title is that Larry Loveage gets a call from his uncle who has “erected a major movie studio on the profits from his penis pump business. The rival studio right across the street is plotting a hostile takeover… and they’ve planted a mole inside the walls of Laffer Studios. If the studio’s dirty laundry gets exposed, all of Uncle Larry’s assets will be left hanging in the breeze.”
Senior Vice President of Global Marketing for Sierra Entertainment said: “Leisure Suit Larry is an entertaining adventure that places gamers in the middle of Hollywood’s tabloid-filled mayhem to create a fun gaming experience. The collaborative efforts of Allen Covert and cast makes this the most amusing and immersive Leisure Suit Larry video game yet.”
The teaser trailer for Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust will appear on Friday 15th February on-air on both Spike TV’s “GameTrailers TV with Geoff Keighley” and online at GameTrailers.com and other MTVN properties including comedycentral.com and spike.com.
Leisure Suit Larry Box Office Bust is being developed by Team 17 and will be rated “M” for Mature. The games expected release is Autumn 2008 and more details on the game can be found on the game’s official website.
