Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe in video game

Hollywood legend Marilyn Monroe and pop singer Elvis Presley will be starring characters in Entertainment Games’ episodic, free-to-play adventures of Retro World, which will launch on Facebook on Nov. 8 before expanding to Google+ and tablet devices.

Presley and Monroe won’t play themselves. Just like in Hollywood, they play characters within the serialized point-and-click adventure games. Gene Mauro, president of Entertainment Games says that the game is aimed at 40+ crowd.

Michael Pachter, video game analyst at Wedbush Morgan Securities, believes as many as half of Facebook’s 150 million monthly unique users are over 40 years-old and may log in into Presley and Monroe video game.
