Gameloft Secures Game Rights to The Newest Movie in the Mummy Franchise
A new dynasty
Scheduled to hit theaters on August 1, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is the fourth movie in the Mummy series and interestingly, Gameloft's fourth collaboration with Universal Pictures as well. Normally, most movie franchises are sagging at this point, but there's been some renewed interest in this one thanks to the inclusion of Jet Li as the Han emperor.
The game will span a total of 12 levels, taking players through caves, deserts, mountains and tombs in the heart of China as they navigate challenging puzzles and mini-games.
"Gameloft is pleased to again partner with Universal to add an interactive mobile component to its wildly popular movie franchise," said Gonzague de Vallois, Senior Vice President of Publishing, Gameloft. "An action-packed property such as The Mummy allows us to go down an extremely wide creative path to deliver an exciting and engaging mobile game for fans."
"We have a great history of collaboration with Gameloft, and they were a natural choice for us on this awesome title," said Jeremy Laws, Senior Vice President of Universal Mobile Entertainment. "The Mummy franchise has millions of fans worldwide, and the mobile game gives us another vehicle through which to deliver a dynamic and complementary experience."
