Temple Run: Oz the Great and Powerful arriving February 27

Feb 4, 2013

It's only be a little over a couple of week since Temple Run 2 released unto the public, but now we're hearing word that a third installment of the series will be hitting mobile gamers this month. Based on the upcoming movie Oz the Great and Powerful, Temple Run: Oz the Great and Powerful will be released on February 17 to celebrate the new movie.

Very few details are available at this point, with only a release date to go by. Disney's France PR representative Cecile Fouques confirmed the release date on Twitter, and with a rough and simple translation, the tweet says, "and soon, February 27, Temple Run OZ, inspired by the film The Fantastic World of OZ."

We're not sure what exactly the title of the game will be, whether it'll just be Temple Run: Oz, or Temple Run: Oz the Great and Powerful. It would make the most sense that the game include the full title of the movie, but we'll have to wait and see what the developers plan to do. If this is any conciliation, a tester of the game posted the news on Facebook as well, including the entire title of the movie in the post.

The new game is set to release one week before the theatrical launch of Oz the Great and Powerful, which will be hitting theaters on March 8. The movie is directed by Sam Raimi, who also directed Spider-Man 3. The movie stars Spider-Man veteran James Franco and That 70s Show star Mila Kunis, who is also known as the voice of Meg on Family Guy.
