THQ Inc. today announced Scooby-Doo based on the upcoming motion picture for Game Boy Advance. The game, scheduled for release in conjunction with this summer’s highly anticipated, live-action movie, is based on the mystery-solving adventures of Scooby, Shaggy, Fred, Daphne and Velma. Scooby-Doo for Game Boy Advance will be available day-and-date with the movie.
“By pairing mass market franchises with quality gameplay, THQ has established itself as the top publisher behind Nintendo for all Game Boy systems,” said Peter Dille, vice president, marketing, THQ. “We’re tremendously excited about Scooby-Doo and its potential for accelerating an already hot brand.”

Scooby-Doo for Game Boy Advance brings the big screen adventures of the mystery-solving teenagers to gamers on the go. Players will explore exotic locations inspired by the movie, searching for clues to complete missions and ultimately, solve Spooky Island’s big mystery. Inspired by actual movie stills and artwork, the game features beautifully rendered environments and familiar characters in a combination of action/adventure and combat style gameplay.
