- Telltale Also Introduces Individual Wallace Gromit PC Episode Purchase Options

Telltale's first episodic game for Xbox LIVE(R) Arcade, Wallace Gromit: Fright of the Bumblebees, releases worldwide today. The first of four episodes comprising Wallace Gromit's Grand Adventures, the English language game is available for 800 Microsoft points and includes subtitles in German, French and Spanish.

Today's Xbox LIVE Arcade release brings Fright of the Bumblebees to the living room where players can enjoy the interactive experience in the same comfy environment as a Wallace Gromit film. Since its first release on PC, Fright of the Bumblebees has been well very received, with acclaim from outlets including London's Sunday Times, which stated: There's enough mechanical madness, gentle humour and, of course, ripe cheese to please the most ardent fans. IGN honored the episode with an Editor's Choice Award, saying, Telltale nails the look and feel of a Wallace Gromit short film.

In Fright of the Bumblebees, scatterbrained inventor Wallace and his crafty canine companion Gromit embark on a new honey enterprise, From Bee to You. When demand out-steps supply, Wallace tries to boost his worker bees' production using a home-brewed growth formula-with comically disastrous results. Playing as both Wallace and Gromit, you must unravel the mess and restore order to the duo's quiet Northern England neighbourhood.

The next three episodes of Wallace Gromit's Grand Adventures will launch on Xbox LIVE Arcade in the coming months. Telltale's acclaimed Sam Max games are also coming soon to Xbox LIVE Arcade.

Telltale is also announcing that the PC versions of Fright of the Bumblebees and the second Wallace Gromit episode, The Last Resort, are now available for individual purchase for $8.95 at These were previously only available in a $34.95 series bundle. As with Telltale's other series, customers who buy one Wallace Gromit episode for PC will be able to upgrade to the full season for $26.
