Mighty Coconut, the independent entertainment studio behind VR multiplayer game Walkabout Mini Golf, has announced a partnership with Authentic Brands Group for an Elvis-themed course, “Viva Las Elvis.” The course will launch on virtual reality and mobile platforms in early 2025.

“We’re so excited to bring Elvis’ unique Vegas-era persona to ‘Walkabout Mini Golf’ players around the world in “Viva Las Elvis,” says Dana Carpenter, executive vice president, Authentic Brands Group. “Mighty Coconut’s approach of building a dynamic world through storytelling and beautiful aesthetics, will allow players & fans of all generations to immerse themselves in the classic era of Vegas, where the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll reigned.”

The downloadable content (DLC) “Viva Las Elvis” course will feature 18 easy mode and 18 hard mode holes, specially designed lost balls to collect, a commemorative in-game Elvis putter and themed costume elements all set in the fabulous world of Elvis’ 60’s and 70’s era Las Vegas.

Later this summer, Mighty Coconut will begin offering stand-alone licensed avatar packs including “Elvis,” the Jim Henson Company’s Dark Crystal and “Fraggle Rock” properties and Exploding Kittens.

“Walkabout Mini Golf: Viva Las Elvis” follows other licensed courses, including ones based on Jim Henson’s Labyrinth, Cyan’s Myst, Meow Wolf and Walkabout Mini Golf: Wallace & Gromit – which comes out this July,” says aid Lucas Martell, creator, Walkabout Mini Golf, head Mighty Coconut. “The beautifully imagined immersive courses allow players to be in these beloved worlds, to cosplay as the characters, and to make new memories with their friends as they challenge one another to mini golf, scavenger hunts and more.

“We’d been looking for a way to make a retro Las Vegas course, and the pop-culture vibe of Elvis provided a unique way to come at the world-building and the gameplay mechanics. Authentic Brands Group has been a supportive partner in not only imagining a totally fictional space for people to mini golf and explore in Elvis’ Vegas, but also to create custom Elvis avatars so players can start impersonating in-game. This kicks off a series of licensed avatar packs including creatures from Henson’s Dark Crystal and Fraggle Rock, as well as a set from Exploding Kittens.”
