Activision have just announced that they’ll be bringing those boys in black to consoles in 2012. The new game, simply titled Men In Black, will release alongside the 3rd Men in Black film sometime in Spring 2012.
For those not in the know the Men in Black are a secret agency that deals with all sorts of alien life, whether that’s shooting them, helping them settle into their own place on Earth or just generally trying to keep the knowledge of alien existence from us daft Earthlings.
“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 Publishing, Inc. 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.”
Hopefully the films signature quirky humour will be coupled with some damn fine gameplay.
Men in Black is due to release in the Spring of 2012 on consoles and handhelds, though specific platforms have not yet been mentioned.
