NetEnt has signed a partnership agreement with 20th Century Fox Consumer Products, covering the entire Planet of the Apes brand. Slots could therefore be developed around films such as Rise of the Planet of the Apes, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and the upcoming War for the Planet of the Apes, but for now the focus is on the first game - Planet of the Apes - which is due out in October.

The Planet of the Apes brand originated from a French novel written in 1963, with a film adaptation arriving in 1968 which told the story of a spaceship crash-landing on a world dominated by intelligent apes. The movie spawned a host of sequels, television shows, books, comics and toys, and NetEnt’s Chief Product Officer Simon Hammon is confident the new online slot will be similarly successful.

He said: “Planet of the Apes is one of the largest film franchises in the world never to have been applied to gaming before. With such a rich history, the brand resonates with everyone that has grown up with the films, and it will fit perfectly with NetEnt’s wide and diverse player base. We are thrilled to have signed the franchise, and can’t wait to offer the game to players later in the year.”

NetEnt has created a number of other branded titles, including the recent Motörhead release, so the new Planet of the Apes game should be in very safe hands. You can spin the reels later in the year, but for now you can also head over to Casumo Casino to try your luck at the Motörhead game and a range of other titles.
