Minions Paradise “Android is Key” - Mike Rasmussen E3 2015

Minions Paradise is a new mobile game coming to iOS and Android this summer. Since Minions released in the US theaters this past weekend as the number one movie in the box office, it’s no surprise that EA Mobile is bringing another Minion game to mobile devices this year. Ever since the popular Illumination Entertainment Despicable Me series, the minions have been a fan favorite of the cast.

The last mobile game, Minion Rush, was wildly popular, but now EA Mobile is looking to make a builder game. GamerFitNation’s Gregory Laporte spoke with EA’s Mike Rasmussen at E3 about the soon to be released Minions Paradise.

Minions Paradise is based on an island, after a new minion by the name of Phil, who is a perpetual screw-up, wrecks the minions’ vacation cruise ship near the island. Within the game, there are mini-games to help gather items and play in different activities.

Turn the island into the minions' own paradise in the building app.

There is a harvesting mechanic in the game, allowing you to use the items to build different items, buildings, and areas for the minions to relax. Unfortunately for the other minions, Phil continues to wreak havoc.

The creators at EA Mobile wanted Minions Paradise to be as true to the movies as possible when it comes to animations. They worked alongside people onsite at Illuminations Entertainment to help create the animations that would play along with how the minions act and react.

The game is already out in Australia, New Zealand, and Canada, and will be out later this year for everyone else. There is no specific date out yet. You can sign up to be one of the first to play Minions Paradise by signing up at the official website for Minions Paradise.

Rasmussen stressed that he and the others at EA find it very important to get as many people as possible to be able to play, stating that “Android is absolutely key to that.” Be sure to check out the full interview!

Are you excited for Minions Paradise? Did Rasmussen’s comment about Android being key sound like a hit to Bethesda and their release of Fallout Shelter on only iOS for now? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
