Planet of the Apes™ slot revealed as NetEnt’s next branded slot game
I think it’s time for me to give the film Planet of the Apes a go as it was this afternoon that NetEnt revealed the 20th Century Fox film to be the next branded slot game. During a presentation at ICE 2017, NetEnt announced the company has signed an agreement with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products to exclusively license the Planet of the Apes film franchise for the newest branded slot game which will be launched in the second half of 2017.
Planet of the Apes™ slot
The newest branded slot game developed by NetEnt will be based on the simian franchise of which the first film, based on the novel La Planète des Singes, was launched in 1986. It’s not the first branded NetEnt slot based on a classic movie as it was in December 2013 that netEnt launched the Creature from the Black Lagoon™ slot based on the 1954 horror flick of the same name.
Now again, the millions of players at the NetEnt Casinos can look forward to a branded slot game inspired by a classic film, this time in cooperation with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products. Thanks to this exclusive license in the hands of NetEnt, you’ll be able to enjoy original fragments, animations, and/or images from the 1968 film Planet of the Apes once the video slot will be launched in the second half of 2017.
Simon Hammon, Chief Product Officer of NetEnt, comments: “Planet of the Apes is one of the largest film franchises in the world never to have been applied to gaming before. With such a rich history, the brand resonates with everyone that has grown up with the films, and it will fit perfectly with NetEnt’s wide and divers player base. We are thrilled to have signed the franchise, and can’t wait to offer the game to players later in the year.”
Partnership 20th Century Fox Consumer Products
The exclusive partnership with one of the worlds’ largest film companies covers the entire Planet of the Apes brand. With that NetEnt has access to a rich heritage spanning more than 50 years including the 1968 film, as well as the most recent releases: Rise of the Planet of the Apes (2011) and Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (2014).
NetEnt’s Planet of the Apes™ slot is set to create a huge buzz among film fans and players at the NetEnt Casinos once released in the second half of 2017. This branded slot game is promised to feature stunning graphics and unique game mechanics that will bring to life the power and excitement of the Planet of the Apes brand.
