Activision Announce Men In Black Video Game

Activision has today announced a new Men In Black game to coincide with the release of Men In Black III early next year. The title is stand-alone and will give an original story seperate from that of the film.

While there's very little about th eactual game in the press release, Activision obviously want to assure fans that they're going to bring the very best of the series into the video game, adding their own unique twist on an already established universe. Promising "action-packed, yet light-hearted gameplay mixed with edge-of-your-seat shooting excitement from the universe’s most elite peacekeeping force," I'm sure it'll be one to watch out for if absolutely nothing else.

From the press release:

“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.”

Men In Black will be available for purchase on consoles and handhelds from Spring 2012.
