Ubisoft signs Hasbro licensing deal


Ubisoft has announced that it's signed a deal with Hasbro which will see the publisher bring its games to life in videogame form on both current and next-gen consoles.

Titles covered by Ubisoft include the likes of Trivial Pursuit, Risk, Battleship, and Cranium, although games such as Monopoly and Scrabble, were listed for the US and Canada only.

"Ubisoft's leadership and expertise in the console gaming space will help support Hasbro's strategy of bringing consumers engaging play experiences with our brands across multiple platforms," said Hasbro senior vice president Mark Blecher of the partnership.

Meanwhile, Ubisoft's EMEA chief marketing and sales officer, Geoffroy Sardin, said "Hasbro makes games that we all know and love, and we're thrilled to be able to work with them to create video game experiences based on some of their most popular brands."

EA currently holds an agreement to develop Hasbro games for mobile platforms, while Activision holds rights for other Hasbro games such as Battleships.

Can't really imagine playing a board game on the PS3.

I've still got the EA branded Trivial Pursuit that me and the wife picked up for Ps3 years ago for like a fiver! It's actually really good. We played for 30 hours straight and even got the platinum trophy on it, the legit way too. I'd happily buy/download board games for the PS3/4 if they were cheap and fun!
