Disney Interactive Announces Nintendo Game Boy Advance Publishing Agreement
Interactive Game Division Publishes and Licenses Disney Content for Handheld Gaming Platforms
The first title under this agreement will be Disney's "Peter Pan Return to Never Land," releasing February 15 and based on the animated feature film "Disney's Return to Never Land," which releases in theaters nationwide the same day. Licenses for other Disney-branded titles for Game Boy Advance will continue to be awarded to outside publishers.
"Disney Interactive has had success on the Game Boy platform for quite some time, with standard characters like Mickey and Minnie, and properties including 'Disney's Tarzan'(TM), Disney/Pixar's 'Toy Story' and 'Monsters, Inc.,' among many others," said Steve Finney, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Interactive, North America. "To complement our licensing strategy and support a number of company initiatives we are very excited to expand our offering of Game Boy Advance titles through internal publishing."
In addition to "Disney's Peter Pan Return to Never Land," Disney Interactive plans to publish several Game Boy Advance titles this year, including two based on the upcoming animated feature films, "Disney's Lilo & Stitch," which releases in theaters in June, and "Disney's Treasure Planet," which releases in theaters in November.
