If people were confused why anyone thought it was necessary to make a feature film based on Milton Bradley's Battleship, then, then they would have been downright confuzzled by the notion that said film should also have a videogame adaptation. But it happened; and it did.

To Accompany Universal Pictures' 2012 movie Battleship, Activision's Battleship: The Videogame can now be found in Australian stores for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
BATTLESHIP follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a “siege on the sea,” while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying “war on the shore.”

Activision and Hasbro have today announced that the video game adaptation of the recent blockbuster movie, Battleship, is now available in Australia.
In Battleship for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 systems, first person run-and-gun gameplay meets tactical battle command. Playing as Cole Mathis, a first class Navy Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician, players will deploy air strikes and radar sweeps to monitor and dominate the marine battlefield. With killer-combat instincts, players must lock-and-load an arsenal of weapons like machine guns and missile launchers to send the invaders packing.

In the Nintendo Wii, 3DS, and DS versions, players are in control of a wide variety of naval units, including Cruisers, Submarines, and Patrol Boats in exciting turn-based combat with a team of specialised commanders. With different play modes to choose from, including Story and quick-battle Skirmish, players will unlock new maps, units, and leaders to turn the tide of battle.
If your still scratching your head as to how a video game was made from a board game, than check out the launch trailer below (HD over here) which shows off some explosive gameplay footage.

Battleship: The Video Game is now available for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, 3DS and DS.

While some may be wondering how Hollywood was able to include aliens in the latest blockbuster movie based off the board game Battleship, Activision and Magic Pockets have let loose details on the Battleship video game for Wii, 3DS and DS.
Inspired by Hasbro’s classic naval strategy game BATTLESHIP, this seek-and-find adventure is taken to spectacular new heights. Developed by Magic Pockets, the Wii, Nintendo DS and Nintendo 3DS versions offer turn-based strategy gameplay as players are at the helm of their own naval fleet trying to fend off the alien advancement.

Players are in the middle of alien warfare on the high seas and are in charge of a naval fleet of real-world vessels like submarines, destroyers, patrol boats and more. Turn-based gameplay features elements of actual naval warfare command as well as Navy personnel characters that each have their own unique abilities and are key to defeating the alien invasion. With unlockable content and customisable modes, each BATTLESHIP videogame experience is exclusive to the Admiral behind the controller!
Hopefully Magic Pockets can live up to the old classic board game that many people can fondly remember yelling "I sunk your battleship" to their friends and family. This kind of design decision could possibly work a lot better for the more "arcade" style consoles, compared to the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions which offer a FPS style gameplay.

Battleship for PS3, Xbox 360, Wii, 3DS and DS will be available May 2012.

Get ready for a grand oceanic action title this Autumn because Hasbro and Activision have teamed up to present Battleship, a video game adaptation of the classic naval strategy game with the help of Double Helix Games.

It seems to be a stand-alone story from the big Hollywood blockbuster, and features a blend of stragetic naval command and first-person action gameplay.
BATTLESHIP follows elite demolitions specialist Cole Mathis as he clashes against an aquatic-based extraterrestrial peril in the sand and sea of the beautiful Hawaiian archipelago. Trapped in a veritable communications dead zone, Mathis must command the U.S. Navy fleet in a “siege on the sea,” while simultaneously rallying the troops on land for a terrifying “war on the shore.”

Combining naval strategy simulation with first-person shooter gameplay, players fend off the enemy beachside while ordering attacks against their marine counterparts. Seamlessly switching between battlefield and overview “Battle Command” map, the Hasbro game is brought to life as carriers, frigates, cruisers, destroyers, submarines and the legendary USS Missouri Battleship pummel the enemy in a race to strategic points that turn the tide of battle. The BATTLESHIP videogame is a next-gen marvel perfectly suited to turn nostalgic game junkies into battle-hardened admirals.
Battleship: The Video Game will be surfacing on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 this April for Australia, so stay tuned for more.
