THQ Inc. today announced that Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights is in development for PlayStation2 and Nintendo GameCube. Based on the classic Scooby-Doo! cartoon series that features a quirky animated cast of characters and mysterious masked villains, Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights for PlayStation 2 is scheduled for release in summer 2002, followed by the GameCube version in fall 2002.



“THQ has captured the campy humor of the cartoon series and combined it with stunning graphics and gameplay to satisfy a more sophisticated gaming audience,” said Michael Rubinelli, vice president, product development, THQ. “Fans of the classic Scooby-Doo cartoons and gamers alike will appreciate the vast environments and cool effects that truly bring the cartoon to life on the next generation systems.”

Scooby-Doo! Night of 100 Frights combines the classic Scooby-Doo cartoon characters, including Fred, Daphne, Velma Shaggy, and of course, Scooby, and classic villains in captivating gameplay. Only Scooby-Doo can save his friends when the dubious Mastermind captures the Mystery, Inc. gang as part of a sinister plan. Utilizing the missing professor’s inventions, Scooby-Doo escapes mysterious monsters while searching for clues in more than 12 huge levels, including a creepy mansion, a spooky cave and a ghostly graveyard. Through it all, Scooby still has time to pick up Scooby Snacks™ and a host of other wacky power-ups to eventually foil the Mastermind’s evil plans.

Scooby-Doo was created by animation legends William Hanna and Joseph Barbera, and Scooby-Doo! Where Are You? is one of the longest-running animated series in television history. The series is one of Cartoon Network’s top rated shows, and is also currently airing on the Kids WB!. Scooby-Doo was also recently voted kids favorite cartoon character on the Cartoon Network.
