The amount of marketing that’s been done for Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues is ridiculous. Some future marketing classes will definitely be looking back at the amount of work that Paramount Studios has done to promote it. For example, Will Ferrell has been in character as Ron Burgundy on CNN and ESPN in the weeks leading up to the movies premiere. Now we’ve got an official Anchorman 2 game for Windows Phone.
According to Ron Burgundy, the following game is “the greatest app in the history of western civilization”. Here’s what you can do in the game:
- Tons of brand new lines from Ron Burgundy, voiced by Will Ferrell
- Simple swipe-to-toss gameplay, easy and fun for everyone
- 4 different locations: The News Teams' new NYC apartment, Ron's shag-tastic RV, the 24 hour newsroom, and Tino’s Jazz Bar
- Play in real life! Print out a copy of the Table Top Rules with a nearly life-size portrait of Ron to accompany your games with actual ice!
The game has been loaded up on our Lumia 1020 and performs well. It’s nothing innovative, but it’s pretty fun to hang out with Ron Burgundy on our Windows Phone.
The movie comes out today. Anyone seeing it?
