A Jumanji game, appropriately entitled Jumanji: The Video Game, is heading our way this December.

It’s set to thrust players into the game world that we discovered in the relaunch of the movie series, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle.

A gameplay trailer has just been released, giving us a little more of an idea as to what’s in store for us. We must say that we’re digging the cartoonish, slightly Borderlands-ish look of it.

The game will allow up to four players (local or online) to jump into the onscreen bods of the movie’s Dr Smolder Bravestone, Ruby Roundhouse, Franklin “Mouse” Finbar and Professor Sheldon Oberon.

Jumanji: The Video Game is slated for release on PS4, Xbox One and Switch on December 6. Meanwhile, Jumanji: The Next Level hits Aussie cinemas on December 26.
