Taking dramatic steps to become a major player in the global games publishing industry, Kemco will disclose some of the company’s major developments at the upcoming 2003 Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), May 14-16, in Los Angeles (West Hall, Booth 2808). Kemco will unveil its hot new original property, Rogue Ops and provide a sneak peek at Lobo, an edgy new title based on the DC Comics character. Other titles that will be showcased include Top Gear Rally and Woody Woodpecker in Crazy Castte 5. Kemco is also on the acquisition hunt for new game properties that will strengthen its portfolio for the future.

“This is an exciting time for Kemco U.S.A. as we have been charged by our parent company to not only lead the development and publishing efforts in the U.S, but in other territories around the world,” said Glenn Halseth, Kemco’s vice president of sales and marketing. “We have secured some excellent new game properties that we are confident will put Kemco on the map in a big way for years to come. We are looking forward to unveiling some of those properties at E3, and also acquiring some new titles at the show.”

At E3, Kemco will unveil its hot new original property, Rogue Ops an intense, action/adventure game that exposes the dangerous world of anti-terrorist operatives. The game features leading lady, ex-Green Beret, Nikki Connors whose world is rocked from normality by an explosion that claimed her daughter and husband. The game follows her exploits as she furthers her personal quest for vengeance. Rogue Ops is scheduled to release this fall on the Nintendo GameCube, the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft.

Kemco is proud to announce that the company is furthering its relationship with DC Comics and has secured the license for Lobo. Kemco is developing a third person action/adventure title, called Lobo, that provides a host of extreme action thrills and over-the-top combat.

Other exciting additions to the Kemco portfolio are Top Gear® Rally and Woody Woodpecker in Crazy Castle 5, both for the Nintendo GameBoy® Advance. Top Gear® Rally is an adrenaline-pumping racing adventure that puts players behind the wheel of a tricked-out rally car. Woody Woodpecker in Crazy Castle 5 is the fifth installment of the action-adventure Crazy Castle series, where players step into the shoes of the loveable cartoon character Woody Woodpecker in his quest to aid Mother Nature in freeing the Fairy World from Demons.
