Sony Pictures and Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe are teaming up for “Jumanji: The Video Game,” a title set in the same universe as the film franchise.
Outright Games and U.K.-based studio Funsolve are creating the title which is being built in Unreal Engine 4 and will launch on November 15th – just under a month before the sequel to “Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle” opens on December 13th.
Players will control one of four explorers, same as those in the 2017 film, as they search for the Jewels of Jumanji in a dangerous wilderness full of exotic creatures and nefarious marauders. Players can team up with up to three other gamers in either online or split-screen local co-op modes.
The game aims to maintain the humorous tone of the part-rebooted franchise.
