"Capcom is pleased to collaborate with Buena Vista Interactive to bring Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas to video game fans," said Robert Lindsey, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Capcom Entertainment. "We believe the story will translate well to video games."
"This is the first time that an entire game will be based on Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas. The characters are featured in a popular game-world in our multi-million unit selling title with Square Enix, Kingdom Hearts, and the feedback and desire from gamers to see and play more of the characters and environments is astounding," said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. "Teaming up with Capcom and their talented development team in Japan further emphasizes our ongoing strategy to bring new, core gaming franchises to the video game community through our publishing label, Buena Vista Interactive."
