It’s only February of 2013, and we have already hit maximum spin-off levels. We’ve got spin-offs of Star Wars, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Boy Meets World in the works, not to mention the fact that everyone is expecting a new Pope to appear by the end of the month.
The videogame world has not been immune to spin-off fever. Recently we’ve seen Chuck’s Challenge, Final Fantasy: All the Bravest, and the PlayStation 4. But here are some spin-offs you may have missed:
• Kid Icarus: I’m Cooler Than Yo’ Mama. Kid Icarus is now a singing sensation who engages in daily rap battles! Join him, by singing your way through twenty different levels, including ice world, volcano world, and Pittsburgh.
• The Last of Us: The First of Us. This series takes characters from The Last of Us, and places them in caveman days, where they must fight anachronistic dinosaurs and evil Fred Flintstone.
• Tomb Raider: Tomb Keeper. Taking place fifty years after the Tomb Raider series, this game features Lara Croft, who is planning her funeral. Can she protect the Croft Family Tomb from graverobbers?
• Dr. Mario: Word Master. Dr. Mario’s vocabulary lessons are going to turn you from a neanderthal to a sesquipedalian! With special guest appearance by Good Burger.
Looks like we’ve got some interesting games to look forward to this year! Stay tuned for next year, when they make spin-offs of these spin-offs.
And then more spin-offs in the following years of those spin-offs. And then sequels to the spin-offs of the spin-offs.
