Jumanji: The Next Level is coming to theaters this coming December, and serves as a sequel to the smash-hit movie Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. Now, if you can’t wait that long then you can spend your time with Jumanji: The Video Game as it has officially been released to the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
You can watch the launch trailer below, which also features the voice of none other than Rhys Darby:
In this new 3D action adventure game, players follow the wise words of the guide Nigel and set off to an adventure fight across waves of deadly marauders as well as dangerous and exotic creatures. Players take on the role of Jumanji’s greatest heroes which are Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Franklin “Mouse” Finbar and Professor Shelly Oberon.
Players can team up with friends online or split-screen modes as that seek to find the precious Jewels of Jumanji while taking on deadly enemies in order to save the world of Jumanji and, more importantly, find a way home.
Players have to hunt for the different Jumanji board pieces in the jungles, dodge deadly traps in underground catacombs, and fight their way across winding city alleyways. Choose your hero and use their unique abilities and weapons in order to survive the fantastical and unpredictable world of Jumanji.
Outright Games CEO Terry Malham said that they are excited to finally release Jumanji: The Video Game. He went on to say that “since the beginning of the project we’ve been dedicated to bringing the fun filled, epic adventure from these iconic films to our video game and can’t wait for the world to be part of the action.”
