Shrek rolls in again

Friday 29 September 2006
Shrek the Third, a new sequel to the Shrek series, has been announced by Activision to tie in with the release of the latest film starring the fat green ogre.

Set for a May 2007 release, we've grabbed a teaser trailer of the Xbox 360 and PS2 game to give you an idea of how it will work - click the movies tab above to see it.

From the looks of things, Shrek the Third will be a straight re-run of Shrek 2's character-swapping team action, with different heroes able to solve different puzzles or obstacles during each of the themed levels.

And, while it might not boast the gravitas of Metal Gear Solid's military adventures, Shrek is always good for a laugh. We'll bring you the first images when they rumble out of the news swamp.
