Bandai Namco has released the first gameplay trailer for Jumanji: The Video Game. In addition, the publisher has announced that the game’s release date has been moved up by a week to November 8th for all platforms.
As the press release reads, players will unite in adventure and laughter in the action-packed game of Jumanji. Players will try to survive the ultimate challenge for those seeking to leave their world behind.
Jumanji is a 3D action adventure game in which you can play as movie heroes Dr. Bravestone, Ruby, Mouse, and Prof. Shelley. The game features online or split-screen modes with up to three players or AI teammates.
Jumanji will be using Unreal Engine 4 and goes for a cartoon-ish look. It looks okay for a movie tie-in, though it’s not bringing anything new to the table. Still, it could be really fun, especially if you have friends that are willing to play it.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
