The new title, “Leo the Lion,” will be released on May 1, 2014, a year after the original “Leopard” and will be made by Ubisoft.

“We believe this will be the next big thing for gaming, the next huge phenomenon,” Activision chief executive Bobby Kotick said at a conference call.

It’s also the first time Activision will have a title for the Nintendo Wii U, which is expected to be out by the end of this year.

Lion’s first adventure, “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids,” was released in 2012 and was rated by critics as “one of the best games of all time.”

“Leisure Corp. is the future of gaming,” said Dan Morehouse, CEO of Ubisoft.

“It’s a game with an edge, a new and exciting take on the role-playing genre that has fans everywhere.”

Lion will be an interactive, interactive story that takes place in a world where animals have become extinct, so a team of kids must set out to save them.

The title is set in the fictional town of Springdale, Pennsylvania, in the United States and will follow the adventures of Leo, a lion-wearing human with the power to shrink the size of objects.
