NHN Entertainment Corp and Idiocracy Games are teaming up to release a new mobile game based on the upcoming Jumanji movie and they’ve opened up pre-registration. Jumanji: The Mobile Game is a multiplayer board game featuring characters from the upcoming movie starring The Rock, Jack Black, Kevin Hart and Karen Gillian.
Players will need to roll dice to move around the game board and collect real-estate and coins as they attempt to defeat their opponents. Victory can be had by bankrupting their opponent, taking over all of the real-estate in one section of the game, or by having the most coins at the end of the game. There lots of dice rolls, upgradeable abilities, and cards to collect. If that sounds familiar, it may be because this game is a Jumanji version of Idiocracy Games’ “Pirates War”.
Jumanji: The Mobile Game is free and contains ads and in app purchases. It is currently in its soft launch phase and available in Canada and Thailand. Players interested in the game can pre-register on its official website to receive free cards and 100 jewels (the game’s premium currency). The scheduled global release date for Jumanji: The Mobile Game is December 14th, 2017. Here is an excerpt from the game’s description and a trailer with more information about the game:
Choose Your Character – Unlock Ruby Roundhouse, Moose Finbar, Dr. Smolder Bravestone, and Professor Shelly Oberon as you progress through the many maps in Jumanji!
Explore the Wonders of Jumanji – Each map you unlock will be different, and you’ll need to learn how to master your skills to overcome each new challenge.
Dozens of Skills to Master – If you want to survive in the jungles of Jumanji, you need to work together, use your skills, and the environment to your advantage!
Customize Your Play – From decks to dice, you can customize each moment of the play experience! Play an offensive game with cards that steal gold or destroy your opponents’ campsites, or play defensively by running away on helicopter, dirt bike, or school bus! Yes, school bus!
