The first-ever MeteoHeroes video game will launch on PlayStation in Spring 2022, with other platforms following later that year. The game is inspired by the popular environmentally themed CG animated series MeteoHeroes, co-produced by Mondo TV and Italian weather forecasting center, Meteo Operations Italia (MOPI).
Via its subsidiary Mondo TV Producciones Canarias, Mondo TV Iberoamerica has teamed up with digital entertainment company Sony Interactive Entertainment España (SIE España) and game developer Gammera Nest for the development, promotion, and physical and digital distribution of the video game. The game has received support from Sony’s PlayStationTalents (part of PlayStation Alliances) which promotes videogame development in Spain.
Worldwide publishing will be managed by PlayStationTalents, who will also carry out communication, promotion and launch activities for the video game. Mondo TV Producciones Canarias owns the game’s IP rights of the game, as well as its content and any derivative products. The company will also hold the industrial property rights over the video game brands.
A major broadcasting agreement with Radio Television Española, will bring MeteoHeroes the series to RTVE’s Clan kids’ channels in Spain and the Americas. The ecology themed show premiered in Spain on Earth Day, April 22. It has subsequently been sold or confirmed in over 140 countries.
Two new MeteoHeroes TV movie specials (2 x 26’) will hit screens this autumn – along with the first episodes of Season 2 (52 episodes x 11’). The series is currently in production and set to premiere in Fall 2021.
MeteoHeroes is dedicated to climate and environmental issues. Each episode focuses on issues related to ecology and respect for nature through the adventures of six superpowered kids who can control weather phenomena. Working alongside scientists and meteorologists at their futuristic HQ based in Gran Sasso Mountain National Park in Italy, the MeteoHeroes are trained to control their powers and fulfil their mission: to save the Earth.
“This partnership signals a great new direction for MeteoHeroes and one that fits perfectly with its aims and ideas,” commented Mondo TV Iberoamérica CEO Maria Bonaria. “Working with some of the best names in the business, we plan to develop a video game that reflects the show’s great storytelling and exciting animation as well as its values and message to create a truly engaging and original video game that I’m sure the show’s fast-growing fanbase will love.”
“At SIE Spain and PlayStationTalents we are committed to projects that have a background as important as MeteoHeroes,” added Roberto Yeste, communication director of SIE Spain and head of PlayStationTalents. “We are very excited to bring that world to PlayStation fans and we are sure that kids will enjoy and learn about the importance of ecology in a fun and enriching way.”
