Adding to their already impressive line-up of games, French publisher UbiSoft has announced that it has licensed the rights to publish games based on the Oscar-winning martial arts epic Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The first fruits of this agreement should appear next spring on PC, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube and GameBoy Advance. Details at this stage are few and far between, but UbiSoft are promising to use "the hottest new technologies and a team of highly specialized graphic and design experts to ensure that the games include the same mindblowing special effects that thrilled moviegoers around the world".

"Bringing Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon to the gaming audience is an incredible opportunity for Ubi Soft", company CEO Yves Guillemot is quoted as saying. "With this amazingly successful film, we have the ability to tell stories that are not only technically rich and challenging, but are also extremely plot-driven. Ubi Soft looks forward to continuing the thread of this elaborate tale and bringing it to an even greater public."
