Look out! Official Sharknado video game incoming!

So, um… there’s another movie tie-in game on the way, as SyFy announces an iOS adaptation of Sharknado, set for release later this month.

No, seriously.

No, seriously.

Believe it or not, Sharknado: The Video Game is an endless runner, developed by the team at Other Ocean, the team behind NBA Rush and upcoming ID@Xbox title #IDARB.

Designer Frank Cifaldi explains:

When Majesco approached us about making a Sharknado game, we said ‘yes’ before they’d even finished asking. The game we came up with is very much in the spirit of the films: ridiculous, overblown, yet oddly sincere. We can’t wait for fans to sink their teeth into it.

Just how ridiculous and overblown? Well, here’s some of what you can expect from Sharknado: The Video Game:

  • Run through the streets of Manhattan wielding a broadsword.
  • Bound off of the backs of tiger sharks to reach higher ground.
  • Feed buckets of fish to angry sharks to avoid death.
  • Surf New York’s flooded avenues, avoiding hammerhead shark stampedes.
  • Collect official Sharknado trading cards.
  • Grab a chain saw and fly into the heart of Sharknado, destroying it from the inside.

It doesn’t look like it’s a 100% retelling of the 2013 movie (which starred Tara Reid and Beverly Hills 90210 actor Ian Ziering), but it should be a bunch of fun nonetheless.

…and the best bit? Sharknado: The Video Game is due to hit iOS devices in the next couple of weeks, to properly get you in the mood for the U.S. release of Sharknado 2: The Second One on SyFy.
