The Smurfs 2 The Video Game – Post Launch Trailer
Can you ever get enough Smurfberries to really be satisfied? Our tongues say “no” as we drool in blue after making a second trip to the Enchanted Forest to follow-up our launch trailer with this post-launch trailer of The Smurfs 2 The Videogame. This powerfully Smurftastic trailer proves, though small and blue, there’s really nothing they can’t do. Our goal was to dynamically showcase the powers of each playable Smurf character, let their personalities shine, and show how each character comes in handy for solving in-game obstacles and puzzles. While we can’t say we had our fill of Smurfberries, we can say our tongues are still blue, and show no signs of fading anytime soon.
