The Garbage Pail Kids are getting a new free to play mobile game described as, card-battle RPG and card-collecting role-playing game in the near future from Jago Studios in collaboration with Topps. The game will have not only the classic cards we all remember, but will also have new “more contemporary cards.” The game is set to be released for booth apple and android.
Stuart Drexler, Jago Studios Founder and Chief Executive Officer said:
“Garbage Pail Kids are icons of the ‘80s and a mobile card battler featuring their freaky antics is a natural expansion for the infamous and beloved brand…..We are thrilled to be working with Topps and look forward to bringing these memorable characters to life in a new way fans can interact with, directly on their mobile devices.”
“Garbage Pail Kids hits several notes for us that make it a perfect fit….First, we believe in the power of humor to bring people together. People like to laugh, and it’s something we could certainly use more of these days. GPK was really one of pop culture’s truly viral phenomena, spreading like wildfire across playgrounds around the globe, and without any advertising. Humor is by its very nature inherently sharable.”
Added Ira Friedman, Vice President, Global Licensing at The Topps Company said:
“The game from Jago Studios will bring our Garbage Pail Kids to mobile devices around the world in a new way people haven’t had before…….For fans from the ‘80s or the new generation just learning about the brand, virtually battling with GPK collectible cards offers a new mobile social experience that remains faithful to the irreverent heritage of Garbage Pail Kids.”
