Sony Pictures has teamed up with Ubisoft to release The Smurfs 2, a side-scrolling platform game that will follow the movie of the same name. Consoles will receive this high end version by July 2013, while a separate storybook version is planned for Nintendo DS.
In The Smurfs 2, Gargamel will create the Naughties to try to steal Smurf extract. In order to do so, he’ll need the help of Smurfette, which Gargamel kidnaps and takes around the globe to forge an alliance with the Naughties. Locations will take players from the Smurf village to Paris and even New York. Screenshots are available, which we’ll post below. They show cooperative action, with slight similarities to New Super Mario Bros.
