Do you like movie tie-in games? Marvel likes movie tie-in games. Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past is currently in development by GlitchSoft for iOS. It'll be ready some time this May, but an exact date hasn't been announced.
Luckily for us, this isn't your typical movie tie-in game. Uncanny X-Men: Days of Future Past will have some heavy similarities in its story to this summer's much anticipated blockbuster, but it'll be using the characters from the 1981 Uncanny X-Men comic, continuing with the Colossus of a movie premise. For those unaware, the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past takes Charles Xavier's X-Men of the present into the past.
Marvel's VP of Games Production TQ Jefferson had this to say about the company's decision to let GlitchSoft develop the game:
"GlitchSoft came to us with a pedigree of rock-solid game development, strong production values, and a passion for the Uncanny X-Men franchise that was impossible to ignore. It’s these sorts of qualities that we look for in a partner, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring our version of ‘Days of Future Past’ to mobile."
X-Men: Days of Future Past opens in theaters the weekend of May 23 across the globe. While no specific date has been announced for the Uncanny X-Men tie-in on iOS, it will likely make its way to the App Store around the same time.
