Bandai Namco announced today that with Outright Games and Funsolve, they will collaborate with Sony Pictures to create Jumanji: The Video Game. This officially licensed title will be based on the Jumanji film franchise and will release on November 15th, 2019. Players will control Jumanji’s greatest heroes, as they seek the precious Jewels of Jumanji to save the world and get home. However, bands of marauders and exotic creatures will bar the way. Up to four players can team up online, or in split-screen mode, to tackle new Jumanji environments. Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Franklin “Mouse” Finbar or Professor Shelly Oberon can be played, and use their skills to keep each other alive. It will release on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
“This is a dream come true for our studio” Funsolve Founder and Director, Richard Tawn said “Adapting the exotic, dangerous and hilarious world of Jumanji into a video game has pushed us to create something truly special. We’ve got some incredibly exciting features and reveals coming soon, but for now let’s just say the game is coming this November, and puts you in the shoes of iconic Jumanji heroes.”
“Jumanji is a property we have been eager to work with for a long time” said Terry Malham, CEO of Outright Games “Our specialty as a video game publisher is in producing high-quality interactive-entertainment for the whole family to enjoy and there is no brand more exciting for families right now than Jumanji.”
