Microids to release new 3D action-adventure game based on The Smurfs
French publisher Microids and IMPS announced today that a new publishing deal has been reached for a video game based on The Smurfs.
The upcoming project will be a 3D action-adventure title, which is being developed by OSome Studio. It’ll offer “a brand new story” with “tons of humor, thrills, friendship, suspense and of course, a lot of action.”
Microids VP Elliot Grassiano said in today’s announcement:
“We are delighted for concluding this new partnership with IMPS! Thanks to this trans-generational license and the talent of OSome Studio, a long time Microids partner studio which worked on several family games, we are confident in bringing together all gamers in the wonderful world of the Smurfs. The worldwide success met by the Smurfs will also allow us to increase our brand awareness overseas and position Microids as a major player internationally.”
IMPS founder and president Véronique Culliford also said:
“I am very happy about this beautiful partnership, video games have always been my passion, because they combine playfulness and often learning.”
Microids hasn’t confirmed platforms officially, but given the company’s history, we should be seeing The Smurfs game on Switch.
