Video game maker Majesco Ent. has licensed rights to Warner Bros. Animations popular TV series, Teen Titans. The deal with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment will see developer Artificial Mind & Movement (A2M) create games for Game Boy Advance later this year, expanding to Xbox, PlayStation 2 and GameCube in 2006.
Based on DC Comics characters, Teen Titans explores the adolescent adventures of superheroes Robin, Beast Boy, Starfire, Raven, Cyborg and Terra. The anime-inspired series airs on Cartoon Network and Kids’ WB.
Created by Marv Wolfman and George Perez, Teen Titans made its comic book debut in 1964 and soon grew into its own monthly comic book series that ran for seven years. The New Teen Titans followed in 1980 and became DC’s most popular comic book of the decade that followed. The revamped version dealt more with the teenage angst aspect and serves as the basis for the animated series, produced under the guidance of Emmy Award winner Glen Murakami.
In Majesco’s Teen Titans, players switch control in real time between the heroes, utilizing each ones unique moves and abilities. The multi-player, multi-level action takes place in a crime-ridden city plagued by notorious villains Slade, Overload, Jinx, Gizmo, and Mammoth.
Edison, New Jersey-based Majesco is also set to release the highly anticipated titles Advent Rising and Psychonauts. More information about Teen Titans and the companys entire product lineup can be found at www.majescoentertainment.com.
