“Collaborating with Lucasfilm on Indiana Jones has been a dream, with the whole Funko Games team flexing their creative muscles as we designed a truly original slate of games,” said Deirdre Cross, Head of Funko Games. “Our new product line captures the excitement and adventure of the Indiana Jones franchise while also providing a broad range of fun and challenging gameplay experiences for players of all levels.”
And coming soon to Target stores, Indiana Jones: Sands of Adventure brings an immersive strategy experience to fans on June 18 as they step into the shoes of Indiana Jones, Sallah, Marion Ravenwood, and Marcus Brody in a timed battle against their greatest enemies to save the Ark of the Covenant.
