GARBAGE PAIL KIDS® MOBILE GAME WELCOMES FIRST-EVER GPK “NASTY NICK” INTO THE FRAY
80’s nostalgia meets mobile gaming – collect, train, and battle original GPK characters
LOS ANGELES — Friday, October 15, 2021— Jago Studios, creator of interactive social entertainment, in partnership with Topps is pleased to announce the addition of the first-ever GPK “Nasty Nick” to Garbage Pail Kids: The Game℠, now available for download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. Boasting the dubious honor of card #1A in the beloved and proudly immature series, the baby-faced vampire joins classic Original Series GPKs such as Adam Bomb, Dead Ted and TeeVee Stevie in the wildly popular mobile game.
Garbage Pail Kids: The Game℠ is a card collecting and strategy role playing game for mobile devices, developed by Jago Studios under license from The Topps Company, Inc., the originator of the Garbage Pail Kids property. Since the launch of the game in 2019, avid players who grew up loving the iconic – and iconoclastic – trading card series have been clamoring to see the “OGPK” added to the game. “1A is a truly significant number to GPK fans – Nasty Nick was the monster who started this whole mess!” said Stuart Drexler, Jago Studios’ CEO. Game developers were even able to include Nick’s fashion doll “victim” as part of his mobile game attack, which for Drexler – who began his own career creating ads for Barbie™ dolls – felt fiendishly felicitous.
“We couldn’t be more excited to bring our favorite undead GPK to life,” expresses Ira Friedman, Vice President of Global Licensing at Topps. “Nearly 37 years on from its original launch, affection for the Garbage Pail Kids continues to grow among original fans, as well as with a whole new generation who are discovering the appealing and appalling fun that is GPK.”
Garbage Pail Kids: The Game is free-to-play and available for download at get.gpkthegame.com. For more information and to receive updates on the game, visit gpkthegame.com or follow @gpkgame on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.
