Mr. Bean stumbling to PS2s

Rowan Atkinson character to be focus of new game from Blast! Entertainment; undated game will feature platforming, problem solving.

Blast! Entertainment has announced that it will be making a game based on Mr. Bean, the British television comedy starring Rowan Atkinson. Mr. Bean will be released on the PlayStation 2, and Blast! has not yet announced a release date for the game.

Details are slim, but Blast! says the game will be targeted toward a younger audience and feature the bumbling character "avoiding tricky traps and problem solving along the way to find his missing Teddy with the help of Bean's girlfriend Irma Gobb."

Mr. Bean is extremely popular across the pond, particularly among youngsters. In the show, Atkinson plays the titular character--a simple man who seems to get into peculiar situations even with the most common activities. Mr. Bean's Holiday, a feature film based on the character, was just released in the UK.

Blast! has not yet announced any plans to release the game in the US.

mac_ronin: The problem isn't the game itself (well, partly it is), but the massacre of two trademarks lots of people loved (and still love). Personally, I just don't want Mr. Bean (as a character, not Rowan himself) to finish his great life with a lame game.

"Geared toward a younger audience" relax guys you don't have to play it. I love Mr. Bean. I'm sure this game will have some very funny moments.

Used to be a fan of the show, it had some really funny moments. Seriously doubt this game will be good. But at least they dont have to hire voice actors since its a mute show. Only mumbles

I haven't seen the film but I hear that Mr B kidnaps a little boy and drives across France with him. Sounds a bit suspect. I wonder if child kidnapping will be a feature of the game.

I love Mr.Bean almost as much as i like Benny Hill, Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy, wierd al, and richard pryor (or wow ever u spell it) The game however will most likely fail, but uh it should be at least rented.

Another licensed movie game, most likely won't be good. Considering they usaully are just carelessly made games, released to make a little extra cash off the license. But there are those rare cases where you can see they actually wanted to make a good licensed game with good gameplay. But I just can't see this coming out to be a good game, first it's a movie tie in, and second it just seems strange to make a Mr. Bean video game.. It just doesn't seem like somthing that would work out too good. Oh and one more thing before I shut up, Blast! Entertainment has made any really good games I can think of either, so really the chances of this coming out very good, are slim to say the least..

HAHA Mr Bean rocks but I don't think that a game about him would be good. Let's see how this turns out.

to those who keep saying this game is pointless.....not all games have to have nudity, violence and 'boss battles' to be a game.

What a strange time to make a Mr. Bean game. The show is hilarious, but it's very old.
