Happy Feet Two: The Videogame

With a little help from ex-L.A. Noire devs?

Movie tie-in Happy Feet Two, the game made by the company rumoured to have rescued L.A. Noire developer Team Bondi from bankruptcy, hits the UK this autumn.

The Nintendo 3DS, DS, PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 game launches in the UK this November courtesy of publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment.

Australian developer KMM Games is making the PlayStation 3, Wii and Xbox 360 versions. With a little help from former L.A. Noire developers?

Embattled developer Team Bondi was this week rumoured to be selling up, with all assets and IP said to be folded into KMM, the company owned by Mad Max maker George Miller. Rockstar owns the L.A. Noire IP.

All staff at Team Bondi were supposedly offered a job within KMM or a severance package.

Brendan McNamara, the Team Bondi boss accused of enforcing unfair working practices, is also rumoured to be joining KMM. If he does, he'll be reunited with developers who left Team Bondi due to the exhausting conditions before L.A. Noire was completed. That won't be awkward. At all.

Brendan McNamara was seen touring around the offices of Miller's animation studio Dr D. Sources said Team Bondi had been "doomed" by the "scandal" of L.A. Noire's development, and couldn't find another publisher partner, post-Rockstar, to work with.

Rockstar, it was said, had developed "disdain" for Team Bondi during its lengthy relationship as L.A. Noire was made.
