BKN International announced Tuesday at the Int’l Licensing Show that it has sealed video game deals for its animated property, Legend of the Dragon, with The Game Factory Inc. and Planeta DeAgostini Interactive.

Under the agreement, characters from BKN’s Legend of the Dragon will hit Nintendo DS and Sony’s PlayStation 2, as well as other digital entertainment platforms courtesy of Game Factory.
