Toy Story 3 Hits PS3 June 15th: It’s All About Zurg

Hi everybody! It’s John Day from Avalanche Software, the developer behind the upcoming Toy Story 3 video game. The game comes out in less than a week, and we can’t wait for you all to get your hands on it. Developing this game was an extraordinary experience and a whole lot of fun. Working closely with Pixar and in the Toy Story universe was an exciting opportunity, and we could not be happier with how the game turned out.

Back in April, we announced here that you can play as Buzz Lightyear’s arch-nemesis Zurg only on the PlayStation 3 . Despite being in Toy Story 2 for only a few minutes, he is our favorite character — we’re excited to have him in the game for you to experience and enjoy! And today I wanted to share some more details on what you can expect when you pop in your PS3 copy of Toy Story 3: The Video Game and unlock the evil Emperor Zurg.

Zurg is quite a bit different from our other playable characters, which allowed us to create some fun things to do specifically as Zurg in Toy Box Mode. He’s the only character with a cannon, and his move set is completely different from our other playable characters. He has many of his own missions, and he even has his own vehicle — the Zurgmobile — complete with hood-mounted cannon. My favorite Zurg pastime is just running around the Toy Box and blasting the townspeople. His evil laugh is great too…MUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Check out our new video (above) on how playable Zurg came together for the PS3. Then, play as Zurg yourself when the game releases on June 15th.

Looking fantastic! I’ve got this on pre-order!

Zurg is where it’s at.

is that the right release date? June 15th is a Tuesday, also most of the major retailers in England have the Toy Stoary 3 stated for July 16th release (Amazon, Play, Game, Gamestation, HMV and shopto)

Thats a very nice cover, and that case looks like metal.

Anyway will the gameplay be similar to Toy Story 2? Because that was the best Disney game on PS one.

@Seany1 ofcourse you can play this game! i mean you never can be to old to play Toy Story!!

Toy Story For the WIN!


I love the Toy Story films and I plan to get this sometime. :)


Looking forward to this.

This might be one of the few good “movie to game” games.

Im also happy to hear that SONY have got another exclusive. Keep the strategy up and give us PS3 fans/loyalists more exclusive content in as many games as possible!


So has it been changed to a worldwide release, or is this an extremely shortsighted blog post?

As far as I know the game is slated for release next month in Europe, but this month for the US. Is this a simple lazy copy/paste job resulting in us getting the wrong release date on this blog?
