Where's Waldo? game on the way

For PC, Mac, Wii and DS this autumn.

Ubisoft is developing a new game based on the popular Where's Wally? books, or Where's Waldo? as they're known in foreign climes.

Where's Waldo? The Fantastic Journey will see players looking for Waldo, his mates and some special items in amongst all manner of clutter, just like in the books.

A multiplayer mode is promised for up to four players. Power-ups will let you obscure your opponent's view using pain, make important objects sparkle on your own screen and so on.

The game is in development for PC, Mac, Wii and DS and is due to go on sale in the US this September. A UK release has yet to be confirmed, but we will be calling Ubisoft every 12 minutes until we get to the truth.
