ZAG Games signs deal for first official Miraculous Ladybug console game

Following the debut of its first game for Roblox, ZAG Games, a division of independent animation studio ZAG, has signed with U.S. game publisher GameMill Entertainment and French game developer Magic Pockets to create the first official MiraculousTales of Ladybug & Cat Noir console game.

Based on the global hit TV series that airs in over 120 countries, the as-yet untitled action-adventure game will be available in stores and digitally in time for Christmas 2022.

“We’re looking to create a highly immersive experience featuring various gameplay elements while empowering players of any age to enjoy a new Miraculous Ladybug experience,” says Elinor Schops, ZAG’s VP, Gaming Experience. “The original game script will align closely with the television series, and we are confident that Magic Pockets and GameMill will bring their expertise, dedication, and passion to the game that will have fans the world over adding it to their holiday ‘22 gift lists.”

Most recently, the new Miraculous adventure quest role-play game for the Roblox platform – the first game based on a TV series to be developed on Roblox – launched on May 3, 2021, exceeding over 245 million plays to date. Miraculous RP: Quests of Ladybug & Cat Noir passed 100 million visits in the first seven weeks, with 88 per cent of players giving the game a “thumbs up.” The game exceeded one million daily active users in its first week of beta, with a rolling seven-day average of 1.2 million users, representing almost three per cent of Roblox platform’s global daily active user base.

ZAG is also in development on a Miraculous bubble shooter game with game developer and publisher CrazyLabs for the company’s second mobile game for the property, Miraculous Ladybug Puzzle RPG. Slated for a Q1 2022 debut, this new take on bubble shooter puzzle games combines RPG elements that feature challenging fighting levels designed for a new generation of players. In the game, users will form their own superhero team starring the show’s characters.

Season four of the Miraculous™: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir animated TV series started to roll out in over 120 countries during spring/summer 2021, and ZAG is currently in production on a US$100 million+ animated feature to premiere in 2022.  Miraculous is the winner of 19 awards, including the 2018 Teen Choice Award for Choice Animated Series.
