Reliance Games, in partnership with Sony Pictures, has released Hotel Transylvania 2, a mobile game based on the upcoming film of the same name, which hits U.S. theaters Sept 25.
The Hotel Transylvania 2 mobile game is a hotel or city-builder in the style of The Simpsons: Tapped Out or Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, in that players will collect Drac, Mavis, Frank, Johnny and other characters from the films, and use them to complete tasks around a hotel they design.
Players are led through the game by a series of quests, asking them to assign specific characters to complete tasks, or build certain structures for the hotel. Gamers will unlock new buildings and characters for the hotel as they progress, but characters must be unlocked by collecting one or more special items first. Mavis, for instance, requires a lottery ticket, postcard and vampire baby book, which players acquire by having their other characters complete specific tasks.
In a statement, Mark Caplan, senior vice president of Sony Pictures Consumer Products, commented on the game:
We’re excited to collaborate with Reliance Games on the launch of the Hotel Transylvania 2 mobile game. We have worked closely with Reliance to ensure that the experience for players is a true extension of the new movie, and unveils a level of entertainment on mobile devices that fans and players will not be able to put down.
