If you’ve seen the Despicable Me films, then you’re more than familiar with the hilarious little yellow characters known as minions. Today, EA is announcing the launch date of their upcoming game called ‘Minion’s Paradise’ which features the minions from the movies. The game is scheduled to launch on October 13th which is coming up fast, and will be arriving onto multiple platforms including Android next Tuesday. Being a minion is tough work, naturally, and after all that hard work the minions need a vacation. The answer? Why not take a cruise and party until the sun comes up, which is exactly what they do.
The only issue is that one minion in particular, Phil, is also on the cruise and Phil tends to be a little bit of a screw up. In the middle of the cruise Phil accidentally sinks the cruise ship and thus ending the party and the vacation for everybody, all the while stranding them on an island seemingly out in the middle of nowhere. All is not lost however, as Phil has a plan to make things right by giving the minions the ultimate party hotspot on the island they end up on. This is where the game takes place and throughout it, you as the player will need to help Phil give the minions a massive party paradise.
You two won’t be alone, as you can enlist the help of some of Phil’s friends, what little he may have left after this debacle, and send them out to discover and collect resources to help you build the things you need for the party paradise. This includes gathering things needed to plant firefly trees for decoration and lighting, as well as electric eels so you can use them to power just about anything that needs electricity. Essentially it seems like Minion’s Paradise will be a builder game of sorts but with its own unique twists and of course, plenty of minion fun in the sun. When Minion’s Paradise launches next week, it will be a free to play game on the Play Store. It’s also worth mentioning that people can already pre-register on the Google Play which earns them a special gift worth $4.99. Pre-registering alone will not get players the gift though, as they will also need to install the game within the first 48 hours of launch, which basically means by sometime next Thursday or Friday.
