Watchmen Prequel Game To Hit Consoles In Early March

Watchmen to Launch Prequel Video Game in Early March

You've heard me say it a thousand times before: movie tie-in titles usually suck. So when I heard about the Watchmen game, I held my breath bracing for the fallout. But thankfully, I hear this will be a different kind of tie-in. Available as a series of prequel episodes downloading on the Xbox, PS3, and PC, the game takes place before the graphic novel picks up, when Nite Owl and Rorschach are fighting crime in the shadows.

One of the highlights is the fact that Len Wein (co-creator of DC's Swamp Thing and Marvel's Wolverine characters) is on board to provide the games dialogue. Said to be available around the time the movie hits theaters, it does come with a warning: this series will be rated M, so you might want to think twice before letting your kids in on the action. I'm definitely keeping an eye on this one (and here's to hoping it stays true to one of the best graphic novels ever), so stay tuned for more news to come!
