‘Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem’ will be the first Addams Family video game to launch on console since 2001. The ‘Addams Family’s’ timeless appeal has spanned generations with many fans loving the ubiquitous theme song and relating to the diverse cast that makes up the multigenerational family. The franchise, which debuted as a comic strip, has gone on to inspire TV series, movies, comics, toys and collectables over its 80+ years of frightful popularity. The family made a return in 2019’s animated ‘The Addams Family’, which featured a star-studded cast and achieved tremendous box office success, earning more than $200M worldwide. A sequel ‘The Addams Family 2’ is anticipated to be released in October 2021.
