To coincide with the release of the new Men In Black movie next year, Activision and Colombia Pictures today announced that a Men In Black video game will blast its way onto consoles and handhelds in Spring 2012.
The title will feature “action-packed, yet light-hearted gameplay mixed with edge-of-your-seat shooting excitement from the universe’s most elite peacekeeping force,” according to Activision.
“The Men In Black franchise is an unbeatable starting point to deliver a genre-bending gaming experience with a level of production value on par with Hollywood,” stated David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision.
It will feature an original story with new characters along with some familiar faces from the franchise (no confirmation as of yet if Will Smith or Tommy Lee Jones will be providing any voice acting)
Mark Caplan, Vice President of Licensing at Sony Pictures Entertainment, stated, “With Activision bringing the Men In Black universe to life on next gen consoles for the first time, the Men In Black video game will be both familiar to fans, an exciting beginning for the uninitiated, and revolutionary for the franchise.”
No details on exactly which platforms the game is set to be released on have been revealed and the title is also not yet rated.
