In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden deep beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by an army of tireless, little yellow minions, we discover Gru (Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal’s new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.

des me dvdGru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.

One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.

D3Publisher recently announced that Despicable Me™: The Game™ for Wii™, PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system, and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable) system, will feature the voice talent of Steve Carell. In the video game that is based on the 3-D CGI feature film from Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment, Carell will reprise his onscreen-voiced role of Gru, one of the world’s greatest super-villains, as he plans the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon! Despicable Me: The Game for Wii, PlayStation 2 system, and PSP system and Despicable Me: The Game – Minion Mayhem for Nintendo DS™ will be available in North American retail stores on July 6, 2010, to coincide with the nationwide domestic release of the movie on July 9, 2010.

In Despicable Me: The Game, players become the mastermind Gru as he plans and plots to build a rocket ship and steal the moon. Players will command an army of  mischievous, little yellow minions to complete puzzles and missions and use an arsenal of despicable weapons and gadgets such as magnet guns, freeze rays and battle-ready vehicles to vanquish all who stand in their way. Players will fly Gru’s aircraft in daring missions against his nemesis, Vector, and play as Gru or Vector in a variety of multiplayer air combat modes! Despicable Me: The Game – Minion Mayhem offers Nintendo DS players an all-new adventure with a unique storyline and exclusive minions to command for hours of entertainment.
