Microids has announced that The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf will be coming to PC at the end of 2021. In addition, Microids announced a partnership with IMP regarding the development of four new Smurfs video game adaptations. These games will explore different genres and will gradually launch over the next five years.
Stéphane Longeard, Microids’ CEO, said:
“We’re thrilled over this ambitious deal with IMPS, as it extends even more our lasting and very promising partnership. Working on such a rich franchise that speaks to all generations allows us to create a wide variety of different games: there will be something to suit all tastes! Besides, thanks to this partnership, Microids continues to significantly reinforce and diversify its catalog of renowned IPs.”
Véronique Culliford, Peyo’s daughter and IMPS’ founding president, added:
“It’s a great pleasure to collaborate with Microids, we fully trust them in coming up with iconic, creative, gorgeous games with our little Smurfs. I’m sure both kids and adults alike will be delighted. Additionally, with the new Smurfs TV series that will be broadcast worldwide in 2021, the notoriety of the Smurfs will grow even more! I am really proud to consolidate our bond with another company from the Media Participations group.”
