Sony Pictures and Playfirst: The Partnership
In this day and age, mobile gaming is becoming a very large extention to the gaming world. Gaming giants everywhere have been dipping into this branch of the industry; this includes such companies as Square-Enix, PopCap, EA, or Rovio. Well, it seems that another gaming giant, Playfirst, known for the addicting dash series, have struck a deal with Sony Pictures to adapt the upcoming film, Hotel Transylvania, into a mobile game.
The Game will be called “Hotel Transylvania Dash” and you don’t have to be a rocket science to know that yes, this will have that addictive, yet, simple gameplay that the Dash games have in common. This game is set to construct an all-new experience based on Hotel Dash; so expect gameplay to be similiar between the two titles. Hotel Transylvania Dash will also have next generation animated art, based off its movie big brother. In a world where the next generation is the high topic, with the current Big 3 war, it makes perfect sense for Playfirst to be entering the next-gen in their own, unique way.
The Dash series have reached 600 million dedicated fans that have fallen in love with the addictive gameplay. So, it’s no wonder that Sony turned to them for a Mobile adaption.
The movie is scheduled to be released on September 28th. But, the game is set to release 8 days before, on September 20th. One can only assume that it is to wet gamers appetites and raise anticipation for the coming movie. This will be the first Playfirst game to seamlessly integrate movie characters and themes into a fun, addictive, mobile enviroment. Sony has gushed about PlayFirst and applaud the work that they have done thus far with their games. They recognize the high quality that Playfirst delivers and knew that if anyone could match the fun that is present in the movie, Playfirst could.
If you aren’t familiar with the dash series; I recommend that you try them all, if you are a fan of time management. Although simple, they force you to think and strategize your movements so that you can always get the best result.
