Video games are getting more and more realistic. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Discovery Communications and Crave are turning two of Discovery’s top shows into video games. Discovery hopes that the action and the dangers of the natural world elements of these shows will translate into an exciting gaming experience.
We feel ‘Man vs. Wild’ and ‘Deadliest Catch’ are a great fit for the video game space,” said Sue Perez-Jackson, director of licensing at Discovery Channel. “They’ll mirror a lot of what happens on the show.”
This will be the second time DEADLIEST CATCH has made a go into video game territory, but was not as successful as the creators had hoped. Discovery promises that the new DEADLIEST CATCH will be more about the action game-play and less about show accuracy. Both MAN VS WILD and DEADLIEST CATCH will be on the Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and PlayStation 3, while only MAN VS WILD will be released on Xbox.
