From Bandai Namco, Outright Games, and UK developer Funsolve, Jumanji: The Video Game has today been announced for Nintendo Switch.
The game has been developed in collaboration with Sony Pictures and is an officially licensed title based on the Jumanji film franchise. It'll put you in control of the film’s heroes as they set off on an adventure to find the precious Jewels of Jumanji, save the world, and then find a way home again. Things aren't quite that simple, though, as you'll also face deadly, exotic creatures, dangerous locations and more along the way.
Here's a little more info and the first official batch of screenshots:
Unite with up to three friends on this hilarious adventure in online or split-screen modes, as you tackle all new Jumanji environments and choose your hero from Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Franklin “Mouse” Finbar or Professor Shelly Oberon and combine their unique abilities to keep one another alive.
Funsolve Founder and Director, Richard Tawn, has shared the following in a press release:
“This is a dream come true for our studio. 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.”
As you no doubt spotted there, the game is releasing this November. You'll be able to get your hands on it from the 15th of that very month, in fact. The Switch version will be accompanied by releases on PS4, Xbox One and PC.
