Activision has announced today that they will be publishing a new Men In Black game to coincide with the release of the upcoming Men in Black III this spring. The press release states that the title will release on, "consoles and handhelds," and refers to the game as featuring, "action-packed, yet light-hearted gameplay mixed with edge-of-your-seat shooting excitement," so your guess is as good as mine at this point.
I like a lot of licensed games, but it's always a crap shoot when it comes to a title being released in support of another product, such as timing game releases with movies to maximize the merchandising possibilities. Sometimes you get something kind of special (like Saw, which I thought did an excellent job of capturing the film experience in a game) but you usually just wind up with Iron Man. Here's hoping, because I really love MIB.
In fact, I think I'll go watch the first flick on Blu-Ray right now.
