3DO Europe today announced an agreement to license interactive publishing rights for 4Kids Entertainment?s hot new property, Cubix - Robots For Everyone, a new animated series launching in February 2002 on Cartoon Network.
Set in the future, Cubix - Robots For Everyone takes place in Bubble Town where robots are a part of everyday life. The animated series follows the adventures of a boy named Connor and his robot pal, Cubix, along with a cast of both human and robot friends. They embark on numerous adventures as they attempt to repair damaged robots and ward off their evil nemesis, Dr. K.
The computer game builds on the animated series with Cubix ? Robots for Everyone: Race ?n Robots. In Race ?n Robots, players can take part in heated Bubble Town races as their favourite series character including Mozzarelix, Maximix, Dondon, Propelix, and of course Cubix himself. Gamers can upgrade their rides by purchasing ?Grav-grip? to help manoeuvre through curves, the ?Zero-G engine? to give racers maximum top speed, and much more. During a race, players can collect ?Solex? for an added power boost, and cameras to unlock a photo gallery featuring the game?s characters.
?4Kids Entertainment has a stellar track record of licensing the properties that kids want,? stated Trip Hawkins, President and CEO of 3DO. ?We?re excited to be in at the ground level for what should be the hottest new kid?s brand this Christmas.? Obviously, Trip made this comment before he?d seen the release schedule, as Cubix - Robots For Everyone will not make it to retail this side of Christmas.
?We are pleased to be working with one of the top producers of video games in the industry. We look forward to seeing the unique CGI animated graphics of Cubix translated into videogames,? stated Al Kahn, Chairman and CEO of 4Kids Entertainment Inc.
Cubix ? Robots for Everyone: Race ?n Robots will be published by 3DO Europe for PlayStation, PC CD-ROM and Game Boy Color in March 2002. A further Cubix ? Robots for Everyone game, title unconfirmed as yet, will also become available for Game Boy Advance in March 2002.
