Konami picks up rights to Saw game

It's due out this autumn, apparently.

Konami has picked up the rights to produce the first game based on the Saw movies, according to Variety.

The game was originally in development at Brash Entertainment, until the studio went bust last November.

Konami has agreed a licensing deal with moviemakers Lionsgate. Looks like Zombie Studios is set to develop; you may remember them from titles such as Super Bubble Pop, Shadow Ops: Red Mercury and Ecks vs. Sever. Or not.

The game will feature the voice of Tobin Bell, who plays Jigsaw in the films. Apparently it's in development for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and will be released alongside the sixth Saw film this autumn. However, there's yet to be an official announcement.
