TDK Mediactive, Inc. announced that "Shrek Extra Large" has shipped for the GameCube. The title will be available at major retail outlets throughout North America. “We are glad to be able to bring Shrek to the GameCube,” said Stefan Serwe, vice president of global marketing, TDK Mediactive. “Shrek Extra Large is the perfect product to address the emerging and growing GameCube market, and with its zany fairy tale characters, we are confident that the game will deliver the charm and twists of Shrek to a wide audience.”

Shrek® Extra Large marks the loveable green ogre’s first appearance on the GameCube and one of his biggest adventures to date. The game takes Shrek through 10 warped fairy tale levels, including new, never before seen worlds. The action/adventure title pits Shrek® against a number of evil forces as he makes his way through the levels in true ogre fashion, completing missions along the way. Jumping into each story land, Shrek encounters Princess Fiona, Donkey and other friends from the original movie, along with brand new characters.

Worldwide sales of TDK’s Shrek® interactive titles have been highly successful, exceeding 1.2 million units to date across four platforms (Xbox, Game Boy® Advance, Game Boy® Color and PC CD ROM). Shrek® Super Party for the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Xbox video game system from Microsoft is scheduled to release in November.
