I'm getting just because I've been a fan for well over 30 plus years.

Smurf: Rescue in Gargamel's Castle is the first platformer I ever played when I was 3 or 4 years old. We had the game at home on the Colecovision and it was pretty good by pre-NES standards. I haven’t played a Smurfs game ever since, because to me, The Smurfs is a part of my early childhood, and I view the franchise as exclusively for young kids, even though I can recognize its charm and character.

That being said, my older sister is a very, very, VERY nostalgic person who’s seemingly living in the past, and The Smurfs is one of her favourite cartoons ever along with The Mysterious Cities of Gold (from the later, her first son was named after the protagonist of the series: Esteban!). She barely follows the development of the entertainment industry, doesn’t follow any of the tech news, let alone the gaming industry news, so she doesn’t get informed about this kind of things unless it is shown on the most mainstream of mainstream media and TV channels. So whenever I see anything related to something I know she adores, like The Smurfs game here, I look up the info and text her the links.

Haven’t got a reply from her yet, but I know she’ll be ecstatic when she learns about this game and the new animated series that will start airing later this year.

Personally, I hope the game is decent for fans like her, and hopefully it even ends up being on the good side of the spectrum, rather than a sub-par product that’s only bait for the fans craving for content.

The 1982 game by Coleco was very good for its time, but that was a lifetime ago. It would be nice if this one was handled with as much care as the Colecovision game was back then. It would be auspicious if the concept art up here was an indication of what the game will be like visually.
