Jackass: The Game
is a video game based on the television series Jackass
. It was developed under license by Sidhe Interactive
, New Zealand
for the PlayStation 2
and PlayStation Portable
. The game was first shown at the 2006 E3
behind closed doors.
The Nintendo DS
version of the game was developed by Sensory Sweep Studios in Salt Lake City, Utah
All of the Jackass cast (excluding Bam Margera
) and crew provided their own voices and supply their likenesses for the game, according to Sidhe Interactive. Johnny Knoxville and other members of the Jackass team also provided stunt ideas to the developer based on unused stunts from the show. A trailer was released in June 2007 on the game's official website, along with the cover art.
In an article by IGN.com, it was stated that the video game would consist of a set of 40 minigames that closely follow aspects of both the series and the movies. Jason "Wee-Man" Acuña
has his own set of minigames in the video game. It is stated on the official game website that the DS version has an open environment with which players interact to pull off stunts.
Filling in as director of Jackass, your aim is to collect the best footage from up to 36 stunts throughout the game to create a new Jackass season for MTV. All stunts have a minimum requirement for content before MTV will approve an episode for broadcast. The new season requires seven episodes of Jackass footage.
