Have you ever heard of Minority Report: Everybody Runs? If you said no, we wouldn’t blame you.

Activision originally published the movie-based Minority Report: Everybody Runs for the Game Boy Advance way back in 2002. It was made by Torus Games. Alex Hutchinson, who directed the likes of Assassin’s Creed III and Far Cry 4, started his career working on that old GBA title.

Minority Report: Everybody Runs might be noteworthy if only for only one reason. During a recent episode of the Game Informer Show, Hutchinson revealed that movie director Steven Spielberg’s assistant reached out to the team during development. Spielberg apparently wanted the guns removed as they wouldn’t fit in with the GBA’s audience – which he felt was more kid-friendly. In its place, Torus Games was given a suggestion to replace the guns with the Sick Stick – a weapon already in the game – that makes you vomit.

A game adaptation of How to Train Your Dragon 2 has been announced for a variety of platforms. It’ll be out in June for Wii U, 3DS, Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360.
