Just in time for the premiere of “Oz the Great and Powerful” in theaters on Friday, Disney has just released its official iOS tie-in game. The game, which Disney developed with Temple Run creator Imangi Studios, is called — drum roll, please — Temple Run: Oz.
Also, the release of Temple Run: Oz is hardly surprising, unlike the out-of-nowhere release of Temple Run 2 last January. A month ago, the then imminent launch of Temple Run: Oz was let slip by a Disney France PR representative, who tweeted that the game would be released on Feb. 27.
But it turned out that the endless running game would be released nearly a week after, that is, today.
