    “Rio is such a fun movie that we wanted to bring a creative, imaginative approach to making a movie-based game, one that can be enjoyed by players of every age and skill level,” said Martin Good, THQ’s Executive Vice President of Kids, Family and Casual Games.  “The colors, the music and great humor of Rio – The Movie inspired us to create a really unique game experience.”

    “We know that once audiences see Rio – The Movie they’re going to want to extend the adventure and fun outside of the movie theatre, and this game is the kind of exciting entertainment experience that is sure to deliver,” said Gary Rosenfeld, Senior Vice President, Global New Media, Fox Consumer Products.
