Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) and Outright Games have announced ‘The Addams Family: Mansion Mayhem’ video game that will feature the iconic spooky family as they embark on a new adventure set in the world of the hit animated movie franchise and will be out in time for Halloween this year on PlayStation, Nintendo Switch, Xbox and PC digital platforms.
Here is the announcement trailer:
In this hilarious 3D platform adventure, play as Wednesday, Pugsley, Gomez, and Morticia in four-player co-op for an exciting family game fright!

Explore the mansion’s darkest depths, magical mysteries and discover secrets while utilising each character’s special abilities, including Gomez’s Mazurka Saber and Wednesday’s pet octopus Socrates. Solve puzzles together and find relics that reveal the mansion’s hair-raising history.
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.
Outright Games CEO Terry Malham said, “It is very exciting to work, not only with MGM for the first time, but to work with them on The Addams Family – one of the biggest family entertainment brands of all time. For us, it is truly a delight to create a thrilling family adventure video game, with one of the most iconic and enduring families in all of popular culture.”
MGM Global Consumer Products and Experiences executive vice president Robert Marick said, “Our fanbase for The Addams Family spans generations and continents, and they are always looking for different ways to connect with the characters and storyline. With the launch of the new game with Outright Games, we are providing fans with the opportunity to enjoy the creepy and endearing charm of Wednesday, Pugsley, Gomez, and Morticia well beyond the movie release this fall.”
