A long-awaited video game of US mafia series The Sopranos was announced to hit store shelves this summer, giving fans a chance to interact with the famous crime family.
Following hot on the heels of EA's gaming success The Godfather, THQ the developer has said that the new Xbox360 and PlayStation2 game will feature the voices of various cast members, including James Gandolfini as mob boss Tony Soprano.
The single-player game, which has taken seven years to develop, will allow players to enter the world of Tony Soprano. In the game you play illegitimate son of "Big Pussy", given an opportunity to demonstrate your loyalty to Tony Soprano.
The game will centre around the gamer earning money on collections, protecting your turf through intimidation, and gaining admiration within your own family to move up in the ranks of the organisation.
"If anyone was a fan of the show, those situations that really mount to that spine-tingling, s**t's-about-to-happen moment, that will be in the game," Contactmusic quoted Tom Stratton, a spokesperson for video game giant THQ, as saying.
