Let the swag begin !

Starting Sept 14 the John Carter swaggernaught begins rolling. First out is the Marvel /Disney retelling of A Princess of Mars in a four issue series. And in Oct ( I think ) is the beginning of the World of Mars prequel to the movie comic. I’m really looking forward to that, it will be ( other than the trailer ) our first real look at Stanton’s Barsoom. Now I just want my iPhone John Carter app so I can battle Warhoons and enemy airships. – Jeff

    I wonder if they’ve got the usual array of video games in the works. You’d think we’d be hearing something about that by now, as I think the games are usually released shortly before the film (IIRC).

  2. Mornin’- I read a while ago about the game and I can’t find it now. It’s been done by a Disney company which ( I think ) have branches in Utah ( fitting ) and maybe Vancouver. They were either the ones who did the Tron Legacy game or Epic Mickey. I’m leaning towards Mickey. They were pushing the atron game early, but they did everything early on Tron. I’m really hoping for a wii version where I can swing the sword around and whack things. Historically though the cross platform games just use the wii as another controller, not like tennis racket.

    What is IIRC ? I haven’t had enough coffee for acronyms….

      hmmm . . . . that would be junction poin who developed epic mickey

      interesting . . . clicking on the list you will note they are hiring

      user interface and downloadable content artist? hmmmmmm

      Nothing in particular to indicate John Carter of mars, but a lot to indicate a big project.

      Looking at there new hires on linkedIn . . . there is some people coming in from other parts of the gaming industry . . . . mostly serious business types of people I guess

      less interesting activity from disney interactive studios

    If I Recall Correctly. They could even have a Barsoom MMORPG (massive multiplayer online role playing game), like Lord of the Rings Online or World of Warcraft, if the whole trilogy is a hit.

      oh lord I would kill for a barsoom MMORPG

      or an elder scrolls styled game . . . .

      if they did an MMORPG they could include expansion packs based on later stuff

      marvels warlord, weird worlds . . . .

      those would make great expansion packs
