It seems like Penny Arcade is getting a boost with the Ellen DeGenres interview.
The news site published a teaser video for the interview, in which the host describes how her platform has helped her become the creator of some of the most successful games of all time.
“Penny’s platform is my platform,” she says.
“I love what Penny’s doing and I love what they’re doing, and I’m excited to see what Penny will bring to our industry.”
The video is now live on Penny Arcade, with the host saying she has “a new game coming soon” that will allow players to “play Penny Arcade’s newest game and earn more credits to unlock the next game.”
“We’re bringing in new talent, and we’re bringing some really talented, innovative developers with us.
It’s going to be amazing,” she said.
“We’ll have more great content coming in the future, so stay tuned!”
The new game, “Gorilla Grotesque,” is currently scheduled to release in the spring of 2019.
“Ellen is going to bring the most exciting game to the market in years,” said Penny Arcade CEO Steve Hsu in a statement.
“And we are confident that we’re on a trajectory that will change the way the industry looks at games.”
The interview is the latest in a series of high-profile interviews with people in the gaming industry.
“The Penny Arcade Podcast” debuted in April 2016.
The show has been downloaded more than 2 million times since then, and has featured a host of industry veterans such as former “Game of Thrones” star Kit Harington, writer James Patterson, and game developer and Twitch streamer Davey Wreden.
Penny Arcade hosts include comedians Jim Rash and Mike Birbiglia, and the podcast was a hit with gamers.
