Despicable Me: Minion Rush, a free-to-play iOS and Android game which launched three months ago in support of the hit animated feature Film Despicable Me 2, has now been downloaded over 100 million times, Gameloft has announced.
"We've been lucky to work with such creative and visionary minds like the team at Illumination Entertainment," said Julien Fournials, SVP Production at Gameloft. "Bringing the Minions to life in a game was great fun. Our collaboration brought a lot of authenticity to the table, from the Minion voices to the uniquely comedic gameplay, and that authenticity helped introduce a lot of fans to the game."
The game's first update added a full new environment, El Macho's Lair, including the new film's villain El Macho and the purple Evil Minions.
A new update to the game is now available on Google Play and soon on the App Store. It includes a full new environment: The Minion Beach from Despicable Me 2. There are also beach themed costumes like the Snorkeler Minion and Surfer Minion.
