Publisher and developer Microids have announced a collaboration with Moulinsart to release a new title based on The Adventures Of Tintin.

The Adventures of Tintin was created by Hergé and published by Casterman. The long-running series has sold more than 250,000,000 books across the world and has been adapted into a cartoon series, radio dramas, and live-action films. The last live-action film released based on the series was The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn in 2011.

Tintin has had many adventures over the decades, but developers are always finding new ways to tell his story. He also often meets new and interesting characters, plus his old friends always come back in new stories.

The new action-adventure game will take Tintin and his dog Snowy to a variety of places with new suspenseful situations. Tintin has already been on countless adventures like deep-sea diving and walking on the moon, but the game will throw him into new interactive situations.

Nick Rodwell, Moulinsart’s director, commented on the new title, stating:

The upcoming PC and consoles video game inserts itself pretty well in the legacy of the most famous reporter’s adventures. Our ambition is to provide a mainstream audience with a fun and friendly game for everyone to enjoy. Microids is for us the ideal partner to bring to life this new Tintin’s adventure.

Besides from Tintin and his pet, other characters from the series will make an appearance in the game, such as Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Detectives Thomson and Thompson.

More information regarding the game will be released in the future, such as the title, artwork, and storyline.

The Adventures Of Tintin has previously been adapted into video games. The first game, Tintin on the Moon, was released in 1989. The most recent game, The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn, was released in 2011 and was a tie-in to the live-action film.

Microids has previously released several titles, including the Siberia series, Asterix and Obelix XXL, and recently Blacksad: Under the Skin.

Microids’ CEO Stéphane Longeard commented that “This really is a dream come true for us.” and that the company’s fans of Tintin and will do their best to “to pay this franchise a vibrant homage.”
