New Men in Black video game coming 2012

Activision has announced that it is working on a new Men in Black game, to coincide with the release of next year's Men in Black III movie. In true licensed movie video game fashion, you can expect it to launch on nearly every console and handheld imaginable. Unlike most movie adaptations, it appears the game will have its own original story, featuring new enemies--hence, the lack of an official title.

No media has been released by Activision, but it's easy to imagine Men in Black III as a rather standard third-person shooter, fighting aliens with a variety of weapons.

"The Men In Black franchise is an unbeatable starting point to deliver a genre-bending gaming experience with a level of production value on par with Hollywood," David Oxford, Executive Vice President of Activision Publishing, said in a press release.

"The Men In Black video game will be both familiar to fans, an exciting beginning for the uninitiated, and revolutionary for the franchise," Mark Caplan, Vice President of Licensing at Sony Pictures Entertainment, added.

Men in Black will be available in Spring 2012.
