Tintin and Snowy are back for a new adventure. Microids has announced a new game in the long-running The Adventures of Tintin franchise.
First conceived almost a hundred years ago as a comic in a Belgian newspaper, The Adventures of Tintin has since sold 250 million copies. In fact, it was one of the most popular comics of the 20th century.
According to Microids:
This new action-adventure game will transport the player into a whirlwind of incredible situations and suspense hand in hand with the legendary Tintin and Snowy characters. Other iconic characters will join the cast like the renowned captain Haddock, fond of fine whiskey and sophisticated slurs, the genius professor Calculus and the finest detectives Thomson & Thompson.
After navigating all seas, exploring numerous continents, doing some deep sea diving in a submarine, and even walking on the Moon, the most famous reporter is ready for some brand new interactive adventures.
Microids said in a press release that the game is coming to PC and consoles. They did not reveal any further details, such as a release date or specific platforms. However, we do know that it will be based on the comic books and not the movies. Back in 2011, The Adventures of Tintin: The Game (known in Europe as The Secret of the Unicorn) coincided with the film.
