Ong-Bak game coming this year

Ong-Bak is a Thai martial arts movie series starring the incredibly hard-kicking Tony Jaa. If you've not seen them, you're missing out.

Thailand-based Studio Hive says it's developing the game for "various gaming platforms" for release in 2012. It's working in close collaboration with the license holder Sahamongkol Film International, which it says will help it to "achieve a much deeper story involvement for all Ong-Bak fans".

As long as its based off the first film and not the 2 god awful films that used the Ong Bak name.

Then again I played the Tom Yun Goong game made by a Thai game company, and it was horrible. Lets hope they put more effort into this one.

There's nobody to blame for those other two movies outside of Tony Jaa. Dude just got high on his own reputation.

In my opinion, that's just the Thai martial arts movie community in a nutshell. They did some really cool stuff for their first movie, and then for the second movie it was just, "We're the shiiiiiiiit."

I'd love to see someone just getting into making GOOD martial arts movies again, and not trying to be concerned with how awesome they look.

There's Donnie Yen for that...

This guy is awesome yet humble. I love just about all his movies. There's one about a vampire, though, that I'm avoiding and people said it was bad. I think it was trying to be like Twilight...I don't know, I didn't bother trying to watch it.

Otherwise, Donnie Yen is awesome and it's too bad he hasn't received any games based on him yet.

*shakes head* wow your a true hipster of martial arts...(not a complement)

when has any of Tony's movies been a good story....true fans watch Tony for his amazing moves.

Totally agree - I just hope there's enough love from the producers to create a game faithful to the source material.

The movie property itself wasnt even respected , why even bother assuming a game would ?

Tony jaa needs to be in more movies the things he does ive never seen in any martial arts movie ive seen bucket loads.

Tony jaa was cool until Donnie Yen came into the spotlight. I want to like jaa but damn the story in his movies are ridiculous.

Edit: @urwifeminder I agree, when ong bak and then protector hit I was showing everybody what he could do.
