The names of Frank and Joe Hardy are instantly recognizable, and now their game voices will be as well, as The Adventure Company announced that two Hollywood stars will be playing the lead roles of the newly-retitled The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft.
In the first game featuring the famous teen crimefighting duo, developed by XPEC Entertainment, the voice of elder brother Frank will be provided by former daytime soap actor and current platimum-selling singer Jesse McCartney, while younger brother Joe will be handled by Cody Linley, perhaps best known for his recurring guest role on Hannah Montana.
To this point, little was known about the mystery the Hardy Boys will be tasked to solve, but today's announcement also revealed the first details about The Hidden Theft. The brothers are first called in to investigate the robbery of the Spencer Mansion vault, but "they soon find themselves in the middle of a major criminal investigation that takes them on an adventure all over Bayport, and even into New York City."
No firm release date has been set for The Hidden Theft, but look for the teen sleuths to arrive on PC some time in fall 2008.
