    Games Based On Movies Based On Games

    Concept »

    Video games based on movies that are in turn based on previous games in their respective franchises.

    Short summary describing this concept.

    No recent wiki edits to this page.


    Movies based on video games have grown more common since the premiere of Super Mario Bros. However, still rare are video games that are directly based on video game-based movies. In this scenario, an existing game franchise is turned into a movie, and a game based on that movie's story is developed. For example, Street Fighter: The Movie features the Street Fighter characters as they're depicted in the film Street Fighter, rather than on their appearances in Street Fighter II. The game also includes the film-specific character Captain Sawada as a playable character.

    In an unusual circumstance, Spy Hunter: Nowhere to Run is a game based on a Spy Hunter movie adaptation that is currently in Development Hell and has yet to be released. The game, however, features a character based on the appearance of Dwayne Johnson, who at the time of the game's development, was to be Spy Hunter's lead.
