Chipmunks go all Guitar Hero

Rhythm action game ahoy.

Brash Entertainment has announced that a rhythm action game starring The Chipmunks is in development for PC, Wii, PS2 and DS.

It's designed to sit alongside the upcoming animated film, and will let you rock to the top as Alvin, Simon and Theodore.

Similarly to Guitar Hero, you'll have to work your way up from smaller venues; performing tracks like It's Tricky by Run DMC as if you were a high-pitched Chipmunk. No puppet peripherals have been mentioned.

Brash Entertainment is a publishing outfit dedicated to producing games from film licences. Thomas Tull from film studio Legendary Pictures founded the operation, and helped raise a starting fund of around USD 400 million.

We heard earlier in the year that SAW game was under way, and that action film 300 was a likely conversion candidate (though Eidos has already released a PSP version).

According to Gamasutra, The Alvin and the Chipmunks game is due for release across the US on 4th December.

We're still waiting to hear back about European confirmation.
