Through a licensing agreement with Sony Pictures Consumer Products, Activision, Inc. is ready for prime time with the announcement of Jackie Chan Adventures: Legend of the Dark Hand for the Nintendo Game Boy Advance hitting retail outlets nationwide this month. Based on the Saturday morning animated series on the BBC1, the game chronicles the adventures of Jackie Chan as he faces-off against the nefarious forces of the Dark Hand on a quest to uncover ancient mystical scrolls.

"Jackie Chan Adventures: Legend of the Dark Hand flawlessly translates Jackie's unique style of humour, slapstick and action to the Game Boy Advance," states Larry Goldberg, executive vice president of Activision Studios. "The fun and fast paced gameplay is sure to delight Jackie's fans and gamers alike.

Starring, Jackie Chan, Jackie Chan Adventures: Legend of the Dark Hand combines eye-popping anime-style animation with fast-paced comedy. As Jackie, martial arts pro and expert archaeologist, players can pull-off incredible moves and death defying stunts including quick punches, spin kicks and unbelievable acrobatic manoeuvres. Additionally, gamers will be able to use in-game objects such as furniture and brooms to defend themselves. On his quest, Jackie will be joined by friends and foes alike. Jackie's feisty niece, Jade, as well as his wisecracking uncle will coach and cajole Jackie as he navigates the globe. The two main villains from the show also co-star in the game, and Jackie must encounter and defeat Valmont, leader of the Dark Hand, and Shendu, the demon overlord of Dark Hand.

JACKIE CHAN ADVENTURES can currently be seen on BBC1 on Saturday mornings. Each episode of this "anime-style" action-adventure comedy follows the adventures of Jackie Chan, an archaeologist and self-studied expert in martial arts. Recruited by a covert police organization known as Section 13, Jackie travels the globe to help defeat the sinister Dark Hand, one of the most dangerous crime organizations in the world.
