Game publisher TDK Mediactive Inc. announced that Masters of the Universe He-Man: Power of Grayskull has shipped for the Game Boy Advance handheld system.
The game is only one element of a major re-launch of the He-Man brand. Introduced 20 years ago with Filmation’s popular animated series, the sword-wielding, musclebound, blond defender of Castle Grayskull is back in full force with a new, revamped series on Cartoon Network and a new line of action figures and playsets from Mattel.
TDK Mediactive owns the exclusive rights to publish interactive Masters of the Universe games for console systems manufactured by Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft, as well as for the PC.
As He-Man, gamers take up the sword to defend their homeland, Eternia, from Skeletor and his minions of evil from the Dark Hemisphere. Other classic Masters of the Universe characters, including Orko and Man-At-Arm’s, help the warrior prince through his quest to defeat the likes of Beast Man, Clawful and Mer-Man.
Developed by Taniko, the game features 13 isometric levels and more than 15 cinematic cut-scenes to convey the storyline and goals. It is available at major retail outlets throughout North America.
