Peter Pan To Become A Game Boy31 Jan, 2002 By: Hive News
Nintendo and Disney Interactive have struck a deal that will bring Peter Pan back to theaters and to the handheld Game Boy Advance video game platform on the same day.
The first title under the licensing agreement will be Disney's Peter Pan Return to Never Land, out Feb. 15, day-and-date with the animated feature film Disney's Return to Never Land, on which it is based. Licenses for other Disney-branded titles for Game Boy Advance will continue to be awarded to outside publishers.
"Disney Interactive has had success on the Game Boy platform for quite some time, with standard characters like Mickey and Minnie, and properties including Disney's Tarzan Disney/Pixar's Toy Story and Monsters, Inc., among many others,'' said Steve Finney, senior vice president and general manager, Disney Interactive, North America. "To complement our licensing strategy and support a number of company initiatives we are very excited to expand our offering of Game Boy Advance titles through internal publishing."
Disney Interactive plans to publish several other Game Boy Advance titles this year, including two based on the upcoming animated feature films, Disney's Lilo & Stitch, which hits theaters in June, and Disney's Treasure Planet, expected in November.
