The third-largest connected universe of comic book heroes and villains is Valiant’s. They may not be as well-known as Marvel or DC. Yet, they have a rich history of stories waiting to be mined for new media. A new deal with Blowfish studios will result in a series of video games based on the Valiant Universe of characters. The deal for a series of video games is just the latest effort in the Valiant Universe media onslaught coming soon. First, there is the Vin Diesel movie based on the Bloodshot character, which released a trailer in October. Sony produced that film, but Paramount Studios is signed on to produced a film based on the Harbinger character. The Russo Bros. are also getting into the Valiant Universe, producing a Quantum & Woody television series. Even their comics are doing well, with Valiant boasting of a ten percent increase in sales this year.

The Valiant Universe Video Games Will Be Multi-Platform

One of the most frustrating things for Marvel fans is the lack of good video games based on their characters. Yes, we have Avengers coming early next year. Beyond that there is only Sony’s Spider-Man game, exclusive to the PS4. Valiant is under no such deal, and thus hopes to bring games to consoles, PCs, mobile devices, and even VR games. And the video games are being developed by fans of the Valiant Universe.

As Michael Bolden, head of publishing for Blowfish Studios, said in a statement:

“Getting the chance to work with Valiant’s Universe will certainly bring forth some refreshing new experiences for fans and gamers alike to explore. I’ve always been a fan of characters like Ninjak, Bloodshot, and X-O Manowar. Valiant’s Universe presents a wealth of unique characters and rich stories that we look forward to introducing to fans as an interactive experience worldwide.”

As the deal only just finalized, the first games won’t arrive for a while. If you need a superhero gaming fix, check out our list of some of the best forgotten games based on comics.
