Ramayan ComicAfter bringing out Ramayan 3392AD, a comic in late 2006, Virgin Comics is bringing out an online video game based on the mythological epic in partnership with Sony Online Entertainment.

The game would be available worldwide and would be a massively multiplayer online (MMO) game capable of simultaneously handling thousands of players online, and would offer a fresh change to the games based on Tolkien mythology, which are much prevalent globally.

Ramayan has been one of the greatest epics ever and combined with its mystery, magic, adventure and transformation, it would surely find many takers.

Virgin Comics has also tied up with UTV Motion Pictures to create four original superheroes which will be leveraged across publishing, film, animation and gaming.

Initially these would be released as graphic novels with the first book being published in late 2007.
