Killer Klowns from Outer Space was an unusual horror movie from the late 1980s. While it might not have been a blowout with fans initially, this franchise gained a cult following. There have been rumors of the IP getting sequels and even a television series. However, now years later, we’re actually getting a video game. It might even prove to be a popular multiplayer gameplay experience. The actual history of the IP is also a bit interesting. This is the first and only movie to be written along with directed by the Chiodo brothers. Stephan, Charles, and Edward Chiodo are known for their special effects and modeling creations for the film industry. However, that was until they tried their hand at creating their own film.
Ultimately, this resulted in Killer Klowns from Outer Space. The name essentially told you everything a viewer needed to know beforehand. A small, simple American town soon became terrorized by these alien clowns. It quickly became a battle to keep the town safe from these creatures and find a way to fight back. Also, as the name suggests, it’s more of a wacky horror film rather than keeping viewers on the edge of their seats. Unfortunately, while there has been a cult following, we haven’t received any official announcement regarding another film or television series getting the green light for production.
With that said, it was unveiled that a video game, of all things, is coming for this franchise. We saw a couple of games already released with a similar setup. This is a multiplayer game where players are working either as teams of humans trying to survive the Killer Klowns or as the antagonists trying to harvest all the humans. Will you be able to stop the Killer Klowns from wiping out the entire town?
What Platforms Will Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game Release On?
If you’re after a new multiplayer-focused game, then Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game might be something of interest. Of course, we know the gameplay takes a similar approach to other games. It’s a battle between humans trying to stay alive and the alien clowns that are attempting to harvest the townsfolk for food. With that, all said, you might be wondering just where this game will launch into the marketplace. After all, we are at an interesting point when it comes to console generations.
We are moving into the latest generation of game consoles. More developers are pushing their games strictly on the latest platforms rather than offering a cross-generation release. However, that doesn’t mean every upcoming game will be limited to just the new consoles. Fortunately, it looks like if you’re still enjoying the last-generation console platforms, you’re in luck. Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game is releasing for the PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, and Xbox Series X/S platforms at launch. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like this game is releasing for the Nintendo Switch. That very well could change later on, but when it comes to confirmed platforms right now, the Nintendo Switch won’t be supported.
At the moment, we don’t know a specific release date for Killer Klowns From Outer Space: The Game. Instead, the development team is only giving players a 2023 launch window, so it’s a waiting game for now. However, while we wait for the specific release date to get unveiled, you can check out the game reveal trailer embedded down below.
