Previously a leak, now a confirmation. Microids and IMPS have recently declared their latest project: a 3D adventure/platform game titled The Smurfs 2 – The Prisoner of the Green Stone. The game is set to launch in Q4 2023 on several platforms, including Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC.
Developed by OSome Studio, this upcoming title is a sequel to The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf released in 2021. The new game promises a fresh narrative that will take the fans of the blue creatures on an exciting new adventure.
In The Smurfs 2 – The Prisoner of the Green Stone, Handy Smurf is on a mission to retrieve the famous Green Stone from the clutches of the villainous Gargamel. This key ingredient is vital for completing his latest invention, the SmurfoMix.
However, things turn when a mishap causes the Green Stone to explode, dispersing its fragments across the Cursed Land. This catastrophic event also frees the malevolent Stolas, an entity hell-bent on spreading terror.
A team of four Smurfs, including Handy Smurf, Brainy Smurf, Clumsy Smurf, and Smurfstorm, embark on a quest to save the Cursed Land from Stolas. With the help of SmurfoMix and an unlikely ally in Gargamel, the team ventures into the unknown.
The game introduces players to an accessible and intuitive gameplay that caters to Smurf enthusiasts and fans of action/platforming genres. It promises dynamic gameplay involving exploration, platforming, and combat, enhanced by the innovative SmurfoMix.
Interestingly, the game allows players to collaborate with Gargamel for the first time in a video game. Players can travel through the Cursed Land using his teleporters and discover three brand-new, unexplored regions.
Players will also have the chance to collect various resources to acquire the BoostiBoom and enhance the SmurfoMix throughout their journey. A co-op mode is also available for those who want to share the adventure with a friend or family member.
