Glu Mobile Inc. today announced that it will be publishing a mobile game based on Warner Bros. Pictures’ upcoming Watchmen movie. The game will launch worldwide in conjunction with the film’s U.S. premiere in March 2009. Watchmen, based on the most celebrated graphic novel of all-time published by DC Comics, is a thrilling mystery-adventure set in an alternate 1985 America where heroes roam as members of society.
“We are excited to continue our relationship with Warner Bros. to create the mobile game based on this highly anticipated film,” said Jill Braff, senior vice president of global publishing, Glu Mobile. “Like the film, the mobile game will engage long-time fans of the novel, as well as those who are getting to know ‘Watchmen’ for the first time.”
Today’s announcement marks the fifth title Glu will develop and publish through its licensing agreement with Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. Other titles developed with WBDD include “Speed Racer,” “The Dark Knight,” “Superman/Batman: Heroes United” and “Bugs Bunny: Rabbit Rescue.”
“Watchmen: The Mobile Game” will be supported by a suite of personalization content which will be available to consumers in early 2009.
