Yes, Sharknado Is Getting A Game Too
Sharknado 2: The Second One isn’t just the least inspired tagline in the history of what technically qualifies as a movie; it’s also getting an equally uninspired game. Sharknado: The Video Game will be releasing on mobile devices for iOS, obviously going for an endless runner.
Throughout the game that perpetually goes forward, players will be given a broadsword to swing around. Eventually, they’ll have to mimic the first game’s more hilarious scenes, where they attack the Sharknado with a chainsaw.
It doesn’t stop there. It’s also possible to bounce off sharks to reach higher ground or feed fish to passing predators.
On the project, Jeff Li of the SyFy channels mentioned:
Whether it’s boxer shorts, books, towels or video games, the Sharknado franchise is becoming an extraordinary consumer products phenomenon along with its worldwide pop culture popularity.
We’re delighted to extend Sharknado to print and video gaming platforms, giving fans new ways to enjoy and interact with the world’s craziest disaster.
Sharknado: The Video Game is a collaboration between publisher Majesco and developer Other Ocean. They’re not exactly known to make the shiniest of games in the first place.
Other Ocean is particularly versed at tie-in games, having previously made titles like Spider-Man Edge of Time and X-Men Destiny. Neither of those are very good.
We remember them mostly for screwing up something as simple as the Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection. They messed up a game that was already made.
At least that gives you hope for having nonsense driven right into Sharknado: The Video Game. Maybe it will greatly benefit the game, in fact.
