NetEnt announces two new branded slots at ICE Totally Gaming
At ICE Totally Gaming this week, NetEnt has just announced its intention to build on the success of its branded titles, by obtaining rights to create two new video slots. The fictional warrior Conan and the legendary Ozzy Osbourne will feature in two separate games, both of which will be given that authentically NetEnt makeover, of course!
Conan has been the mythical protagonist of a number of comics, films and video games. NetEnt's Conan slot will be a sorcery-themed game, and the character will perfectly fit into NetEnt's portfolio of sorcery and adventure games that have attracted such a huge player base lately.
According to Bryan Upton, Director of Games at NetEnt, “Conan is a character and a brand with a fantastic history and legions of fans all over the world. We are honoured to be creating our own adaptation of Conan and can’t wait to give him the hallmark NetEnt treatment.”
Even more surprising is the fact that the legendary Ozzy Osbourne has partnered up with NetEnt for another branded slot, which will be featuring vocals and imagery from this charismatic rock star! The deal was brokered by Global Merchandising Services, Osbourne’s brand management partner, and it’s not the first time the agency struck such a deal with NetEnt. According to its Chairman, Barry Drinkwater, “NetEnt are the market leaders in their field and we're incredibly excited to add another of our artists to the exciting NetEnt Rocks family of games.”
Ozzy Osbourne slot will add to the NetEnt Rocks titles, which include the popular Guns N Roses, Jimi Hendrix and Motorhead.
These big reveals couldn't fail to attract a big crowd of delegates at ICE London. In fact, to celebrate the Ozzy Osbourne deal, NetEnt has also distributed Osbourne branded T-shirts to the delegates following the announcement.
We don't have any information about these two slot's features yet, and NetEnt will clearly keep these a secret for a while. CasinoHawks will be doing its best in the next weeks to provide readers with updates about these exciting new releases - in the meantime, all we can do is look forward to them with great anticipation!
