I’m not necessarily convinced we’ll see a full blown video game in time for G.I. Joe: Retaliation theatrical release, but according to HissTank.com, trademarks are in place for such an event. The United States Patent and Trademark Office has revealed trademark 85512818, with information in regards to G.I. Joe: Retaliation trademarks:
“Interactive entertainment software, namely computer game software, computer game programs, computer game cartridges, computer game discs; interactive multimedia computer game programs; downloadable software for use in connection with computer games, communication devices and mobile telephones; computer game software for use with communication devices and mobile telephones, video game programs, video game software, video game cartridges; pre-recorded laser and video discs featuring animated cartoon series.”
Now, this could mean any matter of things…it could be mobile games for the Apple IOS and Android, or perhaps even Facebook games or viral marketing techniques. I would think that if a full blown video game was being released, we might have known about it by now, but I could be wrong.
Full details for the Rise of Cobra game came out in February, 2009 but that film was released a bit later in the year. Still, with Toy Fair on the horizon, chances of this info getting out soon are very good.
Hopefully we’ll hear more details in a few short weeks at Toy Fair. Meanwhile, let speculation run wild!
