Mere weeks before JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL is set to land in theaters, Bandai Namco has unleashed an official launch trailer for Jumanji: The Video Game! When the interactive adventure begins, players will be offered a chance to step into the roles of characters made famous by the 2017 smash-hit JUMANJI: WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE.
You can check out the trailer below:
Naturally, the trailer is narrated by Jumanji’s own mission-giving NPC, Nigel (Rhys Darby), who informs players about being given the chance to save the breathtakingly-beautiful yet dangerous world of Jumanji. For the game, players will traverse snow-capped mountains, a scorching city, and of course, a steamy jungle filled with enemies. The beat-em-up action adventure game also lets you control all of your favorite Jumanji characters, including Dr. Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Professor Sheldon “Shelly” Oberon, and Franklin “Mouse” Finbar.
Jumanji: The Video Game allows for up to 4-player split-screen co-op, or you can brave the challenges alone alongside AI companions. Throughout your journey, you’ll encounter vicious beasts, malicious marauders, and more deadly traps than you can handle. The game also features a host of customization options and unlockables, adding to the interactive adventure’s replay value.
Of course, the release of Jumanji: The Video Game is all a part of hype for the release of JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL.
Assembling the same crew from the previous film, JUMANJI: THE NEXT LEVEL sees Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Jack Black, Karen Gillan and Nick Jonas reprising their respective roles, with the real-world cast of Ser’Darius Blain, Madison Iseman, Morgan Turner and Alex Wolff also returning. Meanwhile, newcomers Danny DeVito, Danny Glover and Awkwafina will also be joining the fray.
Here’s the synopsis:
In Jumanji: The Next Level, the gang is back but the game has changed. As they return to Jumanji to rescue one of their own, they discover that nothing is as they expect. The players will have to brave parts unknown and unexplored, from the arid deserts to the snowy mountains, in order to escape the world’s most dangerous game.
Developed by Funsolve, JUMANJI: THE VIDEO GAME will be released on Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC today!
