You'll forgive us if we relate Invizimals
to the 1988 sci-fi classic They Live
, but we can't help ourselves. The premise of seeking out "magical monsters" who "live in the world all around you," only seen through the lens of a PlayStation Portable's camera, is eerily similar to "Rowdy" Roddy Piper's situation in the film. Apparently the devs at Novarama have stepped up their invisible monster capturing technology, as a third game in the franchise is headed to Europe "this November."
Unlike They Live
, the 150 "magical monsters" of Invizimals: The Lost Tribes
are instead captured, trained, and unleashed against other creatures, Pokémon-style. And unlike Pokémon, Novarama chose to curate "80 of the community's favorite" creatures and add 70 new ones, rather than building an enormous "Invizidex" roster, if you will. The Lost Tribes
has only been announced for Europe thus far, though we expect a North American announcement somewhere down the line.
