Disney and Nintendo join forces

Walt?s company to publish its own for Game Boy Advance.

Posted by Staff
Nintendo of America and Disney Interactive have signed a licensing contract to publish forthcoming Disney game for Game Boy Advance.

Steve Finney of Disney Interactive North America was keen to point out the importance of the agreement. "Disney Interactive has had success on the Game Boy platform for quite some time, with standard characters like Mickey and Minnie, and properties including Disney's Tarzan, Disney/Pixar's Toy Story and Monsters, Inc., among many others. To complement our licensing strategy and support a number of company initiatives we are very excited to expand our offering of Game Boy Advance titles through internal publishing."

Peter Pan: Return to Never Land is expected to be the first title published under the agreement, with Disney?s Lilo and Stitch and Treasure Planet expected to follow in 2002.

The licensing of Disney games in the UK is a tad confusing and spread too far and wide at present, with titles published by several different companies including Ubi Soft and Electronic Arts. It is hoped that a similar agreement between Nintendo and Disney Interactive will follow suit in Europe.
