As has already been announced many months back, Paramount , Namco Bandai and Digital Extremes announced that they had plans in place to produce and distribute a video game release based on the Star Trek series.  The game to date has only had a tentative release date of “2013” and “Sometime before the new Star Trek movie receives its theatrical release on the 17th May 2013”. Today, Namco Bandai Partners have confirmed the Australian and New Zealand release date for the title. Today the date was refined to the 26th April 2013 – a little less than a month until the film releases.

Paramount Pictures have also announced that actors Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto who starred as Captain James T. Kirk and Mr. Spock in producer and director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek (2009) film reboot, will reprise their roles lending their voice and likeness in Star Trek: The Game. In addition to Pine and Quinto, other actors from the 2009 film are depicted in the game including actress Zoe Saldana, in the role of Lieutenant Uhura, Simon Pegg as the benevolent Scotty, Karl Urban as the beloved Dr. “Bones” McCoy, John Cho as Sulu and Anton Yelchin as Chekov.

Working with Paramount Pictures and Digital Extremes reinforces NAMCO BANDAI Games’ commitment of expanding its portfolio to include Triple ‘A’ Western developed games in addition to its popular and well-respected Japanese Franchises. Digital Extremes’ attention to detail, and the collaboration with Paramount Pictures and the team at Bad Robot Interactive will create an authenticity that is sure to thrill Star Trek fans and gamers alike.

Australian and New Zealand consumers who pre order Star Trek: The Game will get access to the Elite Officer Pack, which contains 10 uniforms for Kirk and Spock as well as numerous weapons to use in game.
