While Valiant continues to dominate the shelves, it would appear that they want to move into the video game screens as well. Valiantphiles of the world rejoice, because Bloodshoot and Ninjak could be soon getting the video game treatment.
Valiant Entertainment is teaming up with Blowfish Studios to develop a slate of multiplatform video games featuring the popular characters from the company’s superhero universe.
Details are being kept under wraps at the moment but Vailaint is no stranger to the genre. Acclaim purchased Valiant in the mid-nineties but unfortunately went belly up 2004.
Valiant is all set to aim high next year with box office release of Bloodshot, the first feature based on one of its properties. Vin Diesel is starring in the high-profile movie, which Sony opens Feb. 21.
“We’re thrilled to bring Valiant’s characters back into the video game industry and give fans the opportunity to play as their favorite superheroes,” said Dan Mintz, founder and CEO of Valiant’s parent company, DMG Entertainment. “Translating these characters and stories to video games could not come at a more exciting time as we introduce the world to the Valiant Universe on the big screen with the Bloodshot release. These games are poised to become further proof of these characters’ immense potential as anchors in pop culture.”
Said Michael Bolden, Blowfish’s head of publishing: “Getting the chance to work with Valiant’s Universe will certainly bring forth some refreshing new experiences for fans and gamers alike to explore. I’ve always been a fan of characters like Ninjak, Bloodshot and X-O Manowar. Valiant’s universe presents a wealth of unique characters and rich stories that we look forward to introducing to fans as an interactive experience worldwide.”
