Uh oh. It seems that Activision has joined forces with Columbia Pictures to create an all-new Men in Black video game, bringing an original story based upon the movies' blend of "action, humour and eye-popping special effects", that's also promising to be true to the spirit of the film franchise starring Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones. Whether Smith and Jones will be in the game however, is unconfirmed. We're guessing they won't.
Men in Black the video game will be launching to coincide with the release of Men in Black III next year, and will feature familiar faces alongside a few new ones, utilising the rich mythology of the MiB universe. Men in Black's gameplay will also be action-packed, yet light-hearted with "edge-of-your-seat shooting excitement", it says here.
“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,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision.
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.”
Right... But if it's terrible, can we have one of those memory-erasing doohickeys, please? Men in Black will be invading consoles in spring 2012, around the same time Men in Black III releases.
