Brings Humongous’ Best-Selling Children’s Properties to Wii
Majesco Entertainment Company today announced a
deal to bring popular Humongous characters Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam and SPY Fox
to the Wii system in mid-2008. These games are being produced by Interactive
Game Group, LLC, under license from Humongous.
The only strategy game series for kids at all
stages of thinking, Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam and SPY Fox are part of the
Humongous properties catalog that combined has sold more than 15 million units
and received more than 400 awards for quality given its charming characters and
great stories. Now Freddi Fish in Kelp Seed Mystery, Pajama Sam in Don’t Fear
the Dark and SPY Fox in Dry Cereal integrate the Wii Remote in point-and-click
style adventure play that the entire family can enjoy together.
"For more than a decade, Humongous has continued
to create some of the most memorable and successful interactive entertainment
properties for children," said Jesse Sutton, Chief Executive Officer, Majesco.
"Their characters have demonstrated both tremendous staying power and widespread
consumer appeal, and we think this kind of family-friendly content is
well-suited to the Wii system."
"My goal is to contribute to the success of the
Humongous properties by facilitating the distribution of these Wii titles with
Majesco in the United States and Atari Europe overseas, thus paving the way for
future development and new products for this highly recognized franchise," said
Frédéric Chesnais, General Manager of Interactive Game Group, LLC.
