MIB: Alien Crisis is an on rails third person shooter for the PlayStation 3, Wii, and Xbox 360. It is developed by FunLabs and published by Activision. Instead of Agent J or Agent K, the game features a never before seen MIB agent named Agent P (Peter Delacoeur). The game was released on May 22, 2012. Alien Crisis is partially based on the Men in Black 3 movie and coincided with its launch in theaters.
Peter Delacour is a master thief who is hired to steal an ancient Egyptian artifact for his client: Emilio Chauncey. As it turns out, Chauncey is an alien who plans to use the ancient book's power to take over the world. Peter narrowly escapes Chauncy who tries to kill him right after receiving the book from Delacour. Chauncey gets away and shortly after, the MIB show up. Frank the Pug takes Delacour into custody and uses an MIB car in hyper drive mode to get Peter back to MIB headquarters for questioning. After interrogation, Delacour tries to stealthily escape MIB headquarters, but is caught. The MIB temporarily make Peter an MIB agent to team up with agent Katiana and agent Frank to stop Emilio Chauncey and save the world.
