Capcom and Buena Vista today announced they are collaborating to bring Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas to the PS2. Based on the 1993 award-winning animated movie of the same name, Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas is a ghoulish tale with wicked humor and stunning animation. In this adventure action game, players assume the role of "Jack Skellington" the Pumpkin King and help reclaim Halloweentown from the mischievous Oogie Boogie. Capcom's production of Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas will incorporate extraordinary worlds filled with magic and wonder mixed with enchanting and musical elements. Capcom plans to release the game in the fall of 2004.

"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."
