NCIS gets the video game treatment

CBS’ hit procedural drama NCIS is making the leap to the video game world. Ncis

Ubisoft and CBS Consumer Products today announced plans to create a title based on the show for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Nintendo Wii due this fall. The game will feature four cases that were written and developed with the show’s writers.

Players will get the chance to play as all of the show’s major characters, from Mark Harmon’s Gibbs to popular forensic analysist Abby in locales ranging from Atlantic City to Dubai. There’s no initial word on whether the actors will provide voice acting in the game.

It’s pretty common for hit shows to be made into games, but NCIS is something of a fish out of water. The program, currently in its 9th season and syndicated to more than 120 markets, skews a bit older than the standard video game player.

Then again, so does CSI – and Ubi has successfully marketed eight games based on that franchise, part of an extended partnership with CBS.
