You already know you're gonna watch Spike Jonze's big-screen adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are when it hits theaters in October. But there's something extra dope about actually being able to play Maurice Sendak's timeless childhood classic from the '60s. In the video game, which comes out on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii. and DS around the same time as the movie, you assume the role of Max, "King Of All Wild Things," who teams up the giant furry creatures to find a way to safety and battle the island's enemies and rugged terrain. Sold. [via Joystiq]
