Dynamite Entertainment has announced it is working with F84 Games to bring Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a sword, to video game consoles… AND GAIL SIMONE IS WRITING THE STORY!
The stunning new game will be based on the acclaimed comic book published by Dynamite Entertainment, with the series’ award-winning writer Gail Simone also confirmed to spearhead the plotlines, characters, and world. Collaborating with F84 Games, Simone’s take on the fearless warrior of Hyrkania will present an authentic and seamless continuation of her stories – putting fans straight into an interactive video game version of the Red Sonja comic books.
“There’re two things I love in this world without question, and those things are video games and Red Sonja,” said Gail Simone in a statement to the press. “Gaming is such a huge part of my life, it’s what I do for relaxation, socialization, and inspiration, and my game and console collection is a terrifying sight to behold. Mixing my favorite character, the She-Devil With A Sword, with my life-long love of games is a dream come true. We plan on making this a bloody, sexy, funny good time, full of brutal swordplay, cackling villains, and horrendous monsters, all seen through Sonja’s trademark wit. I cannot wait.”
Simone’s run on Red Sonja was a huge success for Dynamite Entertainment (and comic book fans who were smart enough to read it), so it is nice to see her version of the character take center stage in this game. The Red Sonja game will launch on multiple platforms in the winter 2016/2017.
