D3Publisher have announced Yogi Bear: The Videogame for Wii and DS. The game will coincide with the release of the hybrid CGI and live action film this Christmas.

As Yogi (voiced by Dan Akroyd, just as he is in the film) you must prevent his home of Jellystone Park from being shut down. To do so you must jump, crawl, zip-line and bellycrawl through the park, searching for wildlife and stealing picnic baskets. Major support characters will show up along the way, Yogi’s sidekick Boo Boo will offer his assistance, whilst Ranger Smith will try and thwart your efforts.

Bill Anker, vice president of business development and licensing, D3P said this about Yogi “With over 50 years of history, the Yogi Bear license has proven to be smarter than the average bear,” Regarding the game he had this to say “In time for the Hollywood release of the film, the video game promises to deliver the full Yogi Bear experience that parents can enjoy with their children.”
