"Scooby-Doo! Unmasked offers fans of the cartoon compelling gameplay by bringing to life the established characters, voices and storylines of the series," said Jason Hall, senior vice president, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. "New costumes and abilities, as well as authentic voice talent, result in a much deeper and exciting experience for the players."
