Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion
IDW Games and Sony Pictures announced plans to develop a series of tabletop games for both the Men in Black and Ghostbusters franchises. The multi-year agreement comes ahead of the new Men In Black movie set for June 2019 and Ghostbusters celebrating its 35th Anniversary in June 2019.
The first game announced is Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion, a crossover between the two franchises. Artist Derek Laufman will be designing the characters, while Oanda Cult Games will be in charge of game design. Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion utilizes dice mechanics, card play, and miniatures from Ninja Division (Super Dungeon Explore).
Jerry Bennington, IDW Publishing’s VP of New Product Development says “We are excited to bring these two iconic properties together along with an amazing group of development partners. We love the fun story we are telling with this game and hope fans will bring it to the tabletop again and again.”
Men In Black/Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion miniatures board game will release in late 2019. Additional stand-alone games for each franchise are also currently in development and slated for release next year.
