If you didn’t already know, Sharknado, a movie that really doesn’t take itself very seriously which involves, well.. Sharks and Tornados, is getting a sequel. Aptly named Sharknado 2: The Second One, the second movie is likely going to be even more ridiculous. What better way to celebrate the release of the second movie than releasing a tie-in video game. That’s right, Sharknado: The Video Game is happening.
Don’t expect next-gen graphics or an in-depth story, you hardly get that from the movies. Sharknado: The Video Game is a mobile title from Other Ocean Interactive who have teamed up with industry veterans, Majesco Entertainment, to make the game a reality. The game is an endless runner, and will see players taking control of the movies protagonist, wait for it… Fin Shepard, as you swipe him out of the way of oncoming sharks as he takes them out with his broadsword.
Of all the endless runners available, Sharknado: The Video Game actually sounds hilariously brilliant. The game is set to launch on iOS later this Summer, there’s currently no word on an Android release.
