IDW Publishing has announced that it has teamed up with Sony Picture Consumer Products and Panda Cult Games to produce both Ghostbusters and Men In Black tabletop games, including a crossover product.
IDW Publishing VP of New Product Development Jerry Bennington stated: “We are excited to bring these two iconic properties together along with an amazing group of development partners. We love the fun story that we are telling with this game and hope fans will bring it to the tabletop again and again.”
The crossover game, entitled Men In Black / Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion is currently in development, and will feature dice, cards, and miniatures with brand-new character designs by artist Derek Laufman.
Peter Venkman, Egon Spangler, Ray Stanz, and Winston Zeddmore from Ghostbusters will all make an appearance in the game, along with Agents J, K, L, and Zed from Men In Black.
Men In Black / Ghostbusters: Ecto-terrestrial Invasion is expected to arrive sometime late next year following the release of the new Men In Black movie as well as the 35th Anniversary of Ghostbusters.
