Minions are Coming to Your Mobiles This Summer

By   /   Apr 7, 2015

EA has announced to have signed a new deal with Illumination Entertainment and Universal for new mobile games based on the Minions from the Despicable Me franchise.

The first title is set to launch this summer and is called Minions Paradise. Players will be tasked with creating a “Minion utopia.” For this mission, players will play as an all-new Minion named Phil, who will lead the Minions forward to create the new world after being shipwrecked on a tropical island.

“Players will help the Minions build, craft, and design their ultimate tropical playground, complete with whirling waterslides, electric eel tanks, firefly trees, and of course, plenty of bananas.”

EA is not working alone on the new project and is collaborating with Illumination’s writers, directors, artists, and animators – all of whom are working “hand-in-hand” to make this a unique experience for fans of the franchise.

“EA is excited to partner with Illumination and Universal Partnerships & Licensing to bring these delightful characters to life for millions of fans on mobile devices,” said the Executive Vice President of EA Mobile, Frank Gibeau.

According to Gibeau, the new Minions games will offer an “engaging story and deep and varied gameplay.” However, further clarification over just how the story will be kept engaging and just what varied gameplay will be offered in the first game, wasn’t given.

Minions Paradise will be released as a free-to-play game, supported by EA’s dreaded version of a microtransaction model. After years of greedy monetization of its mobile games, let’s hope the company has decided to start over in 2015 by not making this essentially a pay-to-win game.
