"Heroes" Video Game in the Works!

"Heroes" Video Game in the Works!

Well, you all called it: After the news that "The Office" was getting its own video game, you predicted "Heroes" would be next — and it is! Apparently, series creator Tim Kring had a video game in mind for the "Heroes" franchise from the very beginning of the project. In fact, the idea of a video game down the line even influenced the way the writers conceived of story lines for the show. Hollywood Reporter has more:

"From Day 1 we've all been thinking about the game," said "Heroes" co-executive producer Jesse Alexander, who first hinted about the game during an online podcast in May. "All along we've been writing some of our stories in ways they can tie into the eventual video game."

Instead of highlighting a specific character's heroic journey, the game will focus on the entire ensemble cast. The game also is expected to play a crucial role in how the show's writers explore cross-platform storytelling for future seasons.

To ensure its relevance, the "Heroes" game won't retell a specific volume's story or be used as a bridge between seasons. "We want it to have a lasting shelf-life and tell a distinctive story that gives you enhanced insight into the entire franchise," said Alexander, an avid gamer.

My first assumption was that the player would get to choose which character he/she wanted to play, thus getting to use the character's special ability. I'm so curious to find out how this will go with it being an "ensemble" game. There's no precise release date for the game, though the article states, "The untitled game could be in stores as soon as late 2008." I'm not sure I can wait that long! Can you?

Hahahaha I guess it's a go then. This would be really interesting and I'm sure a big sell considering what a hit show Heroes has become. I, however, have yet to watch an episode or even a small clip from the show. Just can't seem to get committed to the show.
