In addition, Forbidden Planet will launch early September with a Temple Run merchandise range covering apparel, bags, gift and novelty.
A further new worldwide deal will bring National Geographic Temple Run books to the UK. National Geographic will launch a series non-fiction exploration-style, Temple Run books in Q4 of 2014.
Gayle Tarrant of Lisle International commented: “The new partners are perfect both for the Temple Run licence as they have great synergy with the brand and also for the players of the game itself as the crossover of audience is obvious. With these new partners we will provide an opportunity for fans to continue the experience of Temple Run beyond the game. Temple Run has been cited as part of the revolution in gaming and has demonstrated its longevity and popularity by remaining in the top 20 iTunes mobile games since 2011. Imangi has great plans for the brand going forward and with many opportunities still to be had with the licensing programme now is a great time to be involved.”
