Bakugan Fever Coming to Video Games

The popular animated TV series Bakugan is coming to videogame consoles, thanks to a deal struck between game maker Activision and Corus Entertainment’s Nelvana Enterprises.

The deal calls for the first game to be released for the Wii, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3 platforms in fall 2009.

‘Ever since Bakugan exploded in popularity, players have been clamoring for a videogame version,’ said Doug Murphy, President, Nelvana and GM, Corus Kids. ‘We share our fans’ excitement in doing battle in an interactive Bakugan world.’

The popular series, based on the toy line developed by Spin Master, airs on Cartoon Network in the United States and Teletoon in Canada.

The video games are being developed by veteran Japanese studio NOW Production.
