After the tremendous success of the Ra.One video game, Shah Rukh Khan is once again going to be part of the virtual world. Gameshastra, India’s largest game services company is working on developing a game for the most awaited action thriller of 2011- Excel Entertainment and Reliance Entertainment’s Don 2 starring Shah Rukh Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta and Kunal Kapoor.
Gameshastra is developing a third-person action adventure console game where a player gets to play as Shah Rukh Khan, perform the activities as Don and experience the breathtaking moments of the movie in an interactive space with the different characters from the movie including Priyanka Chopra’s character Roma. The player gets to be the DON himself to complete six immersive chapters! The levels are packed with gunfights, stealth missions, high speed car chases and rooftop chases. Shah Rukh Khan’s character will have three different looks in the game, corresponding to his looks in the movie.
Farhan Akhtar, director of Don 2 said, “Everyone of us seeks adventure and when Gameshastra came up with this idea of making a game based on the film’s narrative it really excited me and I felt that this could be interesting yet fun way to let people have their personal dose of action and adventure”.
This game will be available on Android, iOS, and PSN for PS3 platforms. The game on Android and iOS will be released along with the movie, where as the console version of the game will be released in March 2012. There will also be a social game based on this movie, Don – The Social Mobsters Game, which will be launched on the Facebook platform. The game is being developed by Mango games. Watch out for a detailed release about Mango games and Don-The Social Mobsters Game.
Mohan Raju Director and Founder of Gameshastra is ecstatic about the launch of this major multi-platform title and said, “This builds on the success of the over 47 titles we have published on various platforms for the global markets and positions Gameshastra as the leading game studio in India – we are proud to be associated with Excel and their DON franchise and the success of this title will mark the beginning of many more joint endeavors with major studios in India “
Ritesh Sidhwani, producer of Don 2 is excited about the look and the feel of the game, “This is the first time a game is based on an Indian film that will be launched on four platforms. When I saw the creative of the game I was very excited because the visuals were as real as the characters in the film and for an iconic character like DON I think this was the best way to keep the hysteria going amongst his fans”.
Tanaaz Bhatia, the MD of Bottomline Media Pvt Ltd ( the marketing agency that worked on the association) said, “We saw this opportunity to bring together two entertainment mediums, successful film franchise DON to a multi gaming platform. This is a new innovation in the field of marketing and we are very excited to bring the two together.”
