Here’s the trailer for The Mummy Demastered, the upcoming licensed movie game from WayForward Games. That’s the latest The Mummy starring Tom Cruise and Sofia Boutella. Not the Brendan Fraser series, or even the Boris Karloff film. It’s got that side-scrolling retro pixel indie vibe, so props to WayForward for making frugal use of the license. It isn’t the first time WayForward has made a pixel-art game for The Mummy franchise. They made 2002’s The Scorpion King: Sword of Osiris. That’s the one with Dwayne Johnson’s computerized head and torso grafted onto a giant scorpion’s body.
The Mummy Demastered is launching later this year on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, and Nintendo Switch. You can check out how much Quarter to Three liked The Mummy here.
