Come October 26th 2021 a whole new, rather blue, adventure will arrive on Xbox One, PS4, Switch and PC as The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf releases. And when it does arrive, fans of the little blue brigade will be able to get their hands on either a Smurftastic and/or Collector Edition.
Also due to drop onto Xbox Series X|S and PS5, but not until 2022, The Smurfs – Mission Vileaf will throw players into the micro-world of our little blue Smurf friends as we get the opportunity to check out the enchanting universe that they life in.
This 3D action-adventure tells the tale of how the Smurfs attempt to find a way to elude Gargamel’s evil plans. You see, in his dark laboratory, the evil wizard Gargamel has discovered a formula allowing him to create a wicked plant, called Vileaf. This plant produces Viletrap seeds, which can attract Smurfs and imprison them in vegetal traps. But that’s not the only issue – these Viletrap plants are also a great danger for the forest, as they are highly toxic, especially for the sarsaparilla fields.
For this very important mission, players will take control of a crack Smurf team featuring Hefty, Smurfette, Brainy and Chef. These guys have a little trick up their sleeve though; a very handy tool in the form of the Smurfizer, a revolutionary invention from Handy Smurf. The Smurfizer allows the Smurfs to get rid of the foes they encounter, heal the plants afflicted by the Vileaf, as well as jump higher, glide through the air or dive.
So that’s the set up, what about the key features? Well…
