Funko Games Announces ‘The Rocketeer’ Board Game!
A cult classic Disney film, and one of the superhero genre’s most overlooked entries, it appears as though Funko Games announces brand new The Rocketeer Board Game!
Themed after the memorable 1991 classic, The Rocketeer: Fate of the Future is a new board game that is based around the beloved, jet-pack-wearing hero and his quest to protect the technology that helps him keep the skies safe.
A game that requires two players, the objective is twofold; for those playing as the Rocketeer, they must protect the jet pack’s plans from the opposing players, or you’ll play as the villainous Neville Sinclair and attempt to weaponize the technology for war and profit.
The board game will include sculpted, miniature, pieces with the likeness of characters like Rocketeer, Sinclair, Jenny, Peevy, Lothar, and Valentine; with an additional miniature of The Luxembourg.
The game will retail to the public for $24.99, and will be made available at Gen Con; then hitting the general retail market later this fall.
Comicbook.com first reported the game, and relayed the description below,
