TDK Mediactive Inc. a global publisher of entertainment software, announced today that Shrek Hassle At The Castle has shipped for the Game Boy Advance.

"We've combined all the fun and excitement of the original movie with a great new game design for everybody's favorite Shrek characters," said Stefan Serwe, vice president of global marketing, TDK Mediactive. "The storyline and gameplay are enhanced by Japanese-style, caricature animation, giving the game a very unique look and feel."

Shrek(R) Hassle at the Castle, a third person action/adventure, is based on the plot of the Academy Award(R) winning major motion picture. As in the film, Shrek must try to regain his "home-sweet-swamp," which has been overrun by fairy tale characters. Shrek's adventures soon lead him to Duloc(TM), the Lost Forrest and even to the Dragon's Castle to save Princess Fiona(TM).

Through the game's seven levels, gamers will be able to play as the ogre hero Shrek, his loveable sidekick Donkey, or the beautiful Princess Fiona in over twenty stages of gameplay. Shrek takes on the fairy tale characters with ogre fighting moves, while Donkey uses his four-legged attack to help along the way. Princess Fiona gets in on the action by showing off her karate fighting skills.

Developed by Japanese developer Tose, the title also offers a multiplayer mode, giving gamers the chance to compete with up to four friends via a Game Boy(R) Advance Game Link(R) Cable. Each player can select from Shrek, Donkey, Princess Fiona or Lord Farquaad(TM) as they go head-to-head trying to capture the most coins in each level.

In addition to the film's popularity worldwide, sales of TDK Mediactive's previous Shrek interactive titles have also been very successful, exceeding one million units to date across four platforms (Xbox(TM), Game Boy(R) Advance, Game Boy(R) Color and PC CD ROM).
