Premium games developer, NetEnt have just announced some very exciting news which is sure to delight players worldwide.
They have secured the rights to create its own adaptation of the mythical hero, Conan. This has paved the way for the Swedish company to begin work on developing its very own Conan game. Pretty cool news, right?
NetEnt and Conan
Conan is a mythical hero who has appeared in many mediums from film, to comic books to video and board games.
The famous mythical character first appeared in pulp fiction magazines in the stories of Robert. E. Howard in the 1930s.
Perhaps Conan’s most famous appearance was in the 1982 film, Conan the Barbarian, which featured the towering figure of none other than, Arnold Schwarzenegger.
With formidable physical power and brute strength and force, the barbaric character of Conan seems the ideal fit for an action-packed slot brimming with thrilling features.
What Will the Conan Slot be Like?
Time will tell and the approach NetEnt takes remains to be seen, but we are certainly excited to see the final product.
Quite naturally, NetEnt have explained that the theme of the slot will be sword and sorcery. The widely appreciated and loved inimitable NetEnt style is sure to result in a magnificent creation.
Conan will be the latest addition to NetEnt’s growing catalogue of exclusive licenced content which includes Guns N’ Roses, Motorhead, Jimi Hendrix, Vikings, Narcos, Jumanji and Planet of the Apes.
Director of Games at NetEnt, Bryan Upton, had this to say about the Conan news:
“Conan is a character and a brand with a fantastic history and legions of fans all over the world. We are honoured to be creating our own adaptation of Conan and can’t wait to give him the hallmark NetEnt treatment.”
Any Other News?
There is some more exciting news coming from the Swedish developer. NetEnt have announced they have partnered with the legendary rock vocalist Ozzy Osbourne.
The Black Sabbath frontman will be working with the team at NetEnt to create an Ozzy Osbourne slot, which is sure to be another creation which you won’t want to miss.
The unique slot will feature music by Black Sabbath and, no doubt, appearances by the Prince of Darkness himself.
Ozzy Osbourne’s brand management partner, Global Merchandising Services, brokered the deal and the chairman of the group, Barry Drinkwater, said:
“Thanks to his larger-than-life personality and outstanding contribution to music, Ozzy has developed a loyal and passionate following over the past 50 years – we can’t wait to bring this to the reels for players to enjoy
NetEnt are the market leaders in their field and we’re incredibly excited to add another of our artists to the exciting NetEnt Rocks family of games.”
Exciting Times for NetEnt Fans
This year is shaping up to be an exciting year for fans of NetEnt games and, let’s be honest, that’s most of us.
With the two legendary characters of Conan and Ozzy Osbourne entering into the NetEnt portfolio, we expect the results to be exceptional.
