Publisher Gameloft has acquired the licence to Platinum Studios's top-selling Cowboys & Aliens graphic novel, with the intention of turning it into a mobile game – presumably for iOS and Android.
Set to launch alongside the feature film in July, the game will allow you to relive the graphic novel's plot by fighting off hordes of aliens hell-bent on invading the Old West.
Created by Platinum Studios's chairman and CEO Scott Mitchell Rosenburg, Cowboys & Aliens was the largest ordered graphic novel of 2006.
Speaking on the adaption, Karine Kaiser, vice president of marketing & licensing for Gameloft, said, "We are confident Cowboys & Aliens will translate into a great mobile game that not only stays true to the graphic novel, but brings a new experience to a classic license. Gamers and fans alike will be thrilled."
The Cowboys & Aliens feature film stars Daniel Craig, Harrison Ford, and Olivia Wilde, and is executive produced by Steven Spielberg.
Expect both the movie and the game in July.
