Today Sierra announced it is prepping a videogame tie-in for this summer's Mummy sequel, The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. The game is being developed by Eurocom (Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End) for the Wii and PlayStation 2, and for the Nintendo DS by A2M (Spiderman: Friend or Foe DS). The latest Mummy film, produced by Universal Pictures, stars Brendan Fraser returning to his hero role and Jet Li as the evil Dragon Emperor.
"The Mummy is one of the most distinctive and expansive franchises in Universal's portfolio, and there is inherent gameplay in the property," said Bill Kispert, Vice President and General Manager, Interactive, Universal Pictures Digital Platforms Group. "The new film amps up the action, introduces a ruthless new villain and takes our heroes to incredible new locations. We are thrilled to bring all these attributes to life in this game."
Players will step into the shoes of Rick O'Connell (Fraser) and his son, Alex, as they travel to Chinese tombs and Himalayan mountain tops. Gameplay will be a mix of combat, puzzles, and hieroglyphic decryption.
The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor is set to hit game consoles July 22.
