Italian publisher 505 Games announced its choice for the developer of its upcoming Wii game based on iconic film/musical Grease: Zoë Mode, the Brighton-based Kuju Entertainment subsidiary. 505 also revealed Big Head Games (Elefunk) as the studio behind Grease's Nintendo DS edition.

Zoë Mode seems like a perfect choice for the project, as it has a long history of working on music-based titles like Singstar (Rocks! and Pop Hits), Guitar Hero song packs, Disney Sing It, Dancing With The Stars, and most recently XBLA charity game Chime.

Neither 505 or Zoë Mode have revealed much about the licensed game save that it will "take fake full advantage" of the Wii's motion-sensing controls and microphone (not sure if they mean Wii Speak or a third-party accessory) for casual/family-targeted gameplay. As long as there's a scene in which we can serenade Frenchy with "Beauty School Drop Out" as an angelic Frankie Avalon, we're good.

"Grease is an iconic brand that has spanned generations and we are thrilled to be charged with the responsibility of bringing the Grease legacy to a new medium," says Zoë Mode's General Manager Ed Daly.
