Mediatonic's collaboration with Disney will load TRON-inspired outfits into the world of clumsy jelly beans. Players will see the iconic film costumes on their statuesque avatars in the Blunderdome.
TRON, QUORRA, RINZLER, and SARK are trading in the Game Grid for a (superior) jelly bean form in Mediatonic's Fall Guys. The latest collaboration between Disney and Mediatonic will see an array of iconic TRON film costumes, replete with glowing circuitry and sci-fi flourishes.
Players will be able to enjoy the retro-futuristic aesthetic on May 24, 2021.
With over 40 million players across PC and PlayStation, Fall Guys flings hordes of hyper-colourful contestants together online to compete through round after round of game show mayhem.
With Mediatonic now part of the Epic Games family, the collaboration will also coincide with Fortnite re-featuring their retro-futuristic TRON outfit collection from Chapter 2, Season 5.
"TRON is the timeless family tale of sentient computer entities, compelled to compete against each other in rounds of ruthless competition under the guidance of mysterious Users," remarked Jeff Tanton, Creative Director, Mediatonic.
"So of course, it was almost impossible for us to draw any clear parallels between this Disney classic and the neon-drenched wonderland of Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout - Season 4! Fortunately, the good people at Disney agreed that the TRON costumes just looked super-adorable and that we should go ahead anyway!"
TRON is the quintessential sci-fi action-adventure franchise that was originally released in 1982. The movies chronicle a hacker’s journey into the mainframe, battling for truth within the Game Grid.
The Oscar-nominated film’s cultural impact has resonated globally, and alongside 2010’s Tron: Legacy, has helped define a vision of the digital future in the popular imagination—as evidenced by Fall Guys Season 4’s fluorescent, playfully technical aesthetic.
