Snake Plissken Supplemental: The Video Game and Anime

In our Escape from LA and The Adventures and Chronicles of Snake Plissken episodes, we mentioned the failed attempts to spread the franchise across multiple mediums. I haven't been able to find any more info on the video games and anime than what I mention in those episodes, but I wanted to put together a post pulling together what media is available for the two. All of these images came from a couple of posts on Ain't It Cool News by merrick, and give them a look for access to higher quality image files if you'd like.

The video game was being produced by Namco Hometek, in association with Cosmic Entertainment, a joint production company formed by Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Again, we don't have a date for when this demo appeared, but it was likely some time in 2004 given when development was first announced.

For a sense of what the game might have been like, some other Namco games from around this time which look to use a similar game engine are Breakdown, Ghosthunter, and Death by Degrees.

The anime series was being developed by Production IG, and the dates on these model sheets are right when they were in the middle of the first season of Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex.
