The Rambo series should translate perfectly into video games, but
previous adaptations on the NES, Sega Master System and the Sega Genesis
didn't do the series justice. 2012 could be the year Rambo finally gets
a decent video game adaptation.
Last year the UK publisher Reef Entertainment secured the video game
rights from StudioCanal for the Rambo franchise. Despite Reef
Entertainment remaining quiet about Rambo: The Video Game, there will be
a viewing of the game at the upcoming Gamescom event.
Commercial director Craig Lewis has said of the lack of news: "we
have been quiet since we acquired the Rambo license last August. During
this time we have been dedicated to creating a videogame for consoles
and PC that will allow Rambo fans and gamers across the globe to really
get under the skin of Rambo and wield his iconic weapon-set in battle."
There is little else in the way of info apart from a Rambo: The Video Game website that simply informs us the game is coming soon.
Rambo: The Video Game is expected to be available on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 by the end of the year.
