In a strange marketing move by Hasbro, they have allowed a Korean video game producer “Neople” to license their Storm Shadow character for use in an online game called Cyphers. One look at the video announcement shows that it’s Storm Shadow from the film universe, which makes sense considering what a superstar Lee Byung-Hun is in his native country. That’s obviously what drove the licensing arrangement to begin with, though it does seem strange to see that single character allowed for use.
From what I can tell, Cyphers does not have an English translated version, so this will be fun mostly for Korean game players, but I thought it was a pretty interesting news tidbit regardless.
Check out the promo video below, and you can check out the website for the video game right here.
MAN! I..I wonder how he gets up there!! It was just the other day I mentioned something to other parties about where STORMSHADOW might work better….kinda like OUTBACK or HELIX…
