Martial arts film series Ong-Bak, which has had three action-packed installments starring Tony Jaa, is getting a multiplatform video game coming in 2012.

Studio HIVE, based in Thailand, has secured the video game development rights to the series. They’ll be working closely in collaboration with license holder Sahamongkol Film International in order to create a deeper story involvement for Ong-Bak fans.

Akarapol Techaratanaprasert, business development director at Sahamongkol Film International, comments:

Ong-Bak is well known as a powerful international martial arts brand. We are very selective with our licensing partners and found in Studio HIVE the right partner to bring Ong-Bak to gaming platforms. Their approach to tie in movie and game is the right way to create a perfect interactive entertainment.

Kan Supabanpot, General Manager at Studio HIVE adds:

It’s a great honour for our team to work on the very first Ong-Bak multiplatform game. As a Thai development studio we love the movie and have a deep understanding of the Ong-Bak brand values and we make sure that the videogame will be an inspiring martial arts action experience for gamers.
