A new Addams Family game is coming to PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PC in time for Halloween.
From Metro Goldwyn Mayer, Outright Games, and PHL Collective, The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem sees the iconic spooky family embark on a new adventure set in the world of the hit animated movie franchise.
Gamers can play as Wednesday, Pugsley, Gomez, and Morticia in 4-player co-op for an exciting family game fright! Help the Addams Family save their mansion from a mysterious visitor who is dead-set on taking over.
Explore the mansion’s darkest depths, magical mysteries and discover secrets while utilising each character’s special abilities, including Gomez’s Mazurka Saber and Wednesday’s pet octopus Socrates. Solve puzzles together and find relics that reveal the mansion’s hair-raising history.
Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem will be the first Addams Family video game to launch on console since 2001.
The franchise, which debuted as a comic strip, has gone on to inspire TV series, movies, comics, toys and collectables over its 80+ years of frightful popularity.
The family made a return in 2019’s animated ‘The Addams Family’, which featured a star-studded cast and earned more than $200M worldwide. A sequel is due to be released in October.
