Atlus publishing R.I.P.D. game

Atlus to publish R.I.P.D. game based on upcoming Hollywood film.

Upcoming supernatural movie R.I.P.D. will be receiving the video game treatment, according to a listing on the Australian Classification Board website.

The post cites Saber Interactive as the game's developer, whilst Atlus' parent company Index Digital Media Inc will publish the title.

While there are no specific details on the game, it has been rated MA15+ for strong impact violence, moderate impact themes, and mild impact drug use and language.

Atlus was acquired by Index Holdings in 2006, and merged with the company in 2010, although the organisation continues to operate under the Atlas brand.

This is not the first time that Saber Interactive and Atlus have worked together. The two businesses also partnered to produce third-person shooter God Mode.

No release date was revealed for R.I.P.D, although the listing does state that the game will be multi platform.

Movie based games tend to be bad. A rare few are worth playing like Wolverine Origins.

Aside from that this movie looks okay. Getting a men in black vibe from it. Light comedy mixed with sci-fi ( fantasy ) action.

Rating will get a 5 out of 10 tops, I can guarantee it. Games like this are utterly pointless.

Dear Beloved Atlus,

Directly rip off the latest Call of Juarez game, skin it in this IP and release it for $39.99 and I'm in.

Love,

Error: It is spelt as "Atlas" when it mentions that it continues to operate under that name. It should be Atlus, like you've spelt it throughout the entire article not "Atlas"

Decided to watch the trailer. I think I wanna see this movie. It looks sooooo stupid that it'll be hilarious just like Snakes on a Plane.

Can smell the bad from miles away. 

Still, Atlus have been known to dish out surprises from time to time. Unlike Activision, who have a long history of dreadfully poor movie licensed games rivaled only by the likes of LJN.

A movie game!? Sure to be Game of the Year, can't wait!

Lol, they make Dirty Harry's .44 Magnum gun look like a pea shooter. And Jeff Bridges dual-wielding those multiple-barrel guns? Looks like a barrel of laughs. I like Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds, but I'm far more looking forward to the movie than the game.

Sigh...hated MIB and this movie looks worse. Anybody with a cowboy hat acting cool and tough ruins a movie all by themselves, they don't need the rest of the crapiness that this trailer showed. I'm always willing to try a movie-to-game if I enjoyed the movie but in this case...I doubt it...

Why bother. Most movie licensed games are crap. The last decent one I played was Spider-Man 2.

I'm going to have to take this one with a spoon full of cynicism...

To be the best movie-tie-in-vidja-game, is more or less like being the most charming rapist... it doesn't make you any less awful.

Ha, developed by Saber, as if a movie-based cash-in wasn't terrible enough.

@Orgil220 Meh....The caliber describes the diameter of the projectile round, not the length of the bullet. The gun muzzle isn't that large in those pictures. The cylinder is ridiculously long, and bullet length usually indicates the ability of a bullet to hold more grains for faster/longer bullet travel, which is why handgun rounds are short and rifle rounds are long....there is no need for long travel out of a short-barreled handgun, since the short barrel doesn't allow for accuracy over long distances. In other words, they look cool but are just silly.

@Vambran  Yeah very much so, it's like MiB meets Constantine, with a bit of a western thrown in :).

@sethfrost Even if he was alive, Jeff Bridges would make him appear dead, because Jeff's a better actor, lol. The movie looks cool though.
