Gremlins Video Game Announced 27 Years After Movie's Release
Warner Bros. Interactive and NECA have announced that a point-and-click adventure game based on 1984's horror comedy, Gremlins, is coming soon to DS and Wii. While this isn't the first video game based on the franchise, it's the first one in quite a long time.
Set to release this Friday, November 18, Gremlins Gizmo allows players to interact and play with the series' iconic mogwai, Gizmo, or one of his Furby-esque friends in a variety of mini-games.
The game doesn't look awful based on screens released for the game. And, don't get me wrong -- I loved both Gremlins movies, but do audiences even care enough about the franchise to justify a video game based on it 27-years after its release? Do kids today even know who Gizmo is? Either way, I'm curious to try this one out.
