TDK to publish Disney based games
TDK Mediactive announced today that it will be publishing videogames based on Disney's theme park rides, the Haunted Mansion and Pirates of the Caribbean. Both rides will also be the focus of upcoming movies, so the videogames will take aspects from the films. No specific release date for the movie or game was announced for Pirates of the Caribbean, Haunted Mansion will appear on "most videogame platforms" around Halloween, with the movie coming out in 2003.
"We are pleased to be bringing these incredible Disney theme park attractions to life in the world of interactive games," said Vincent Bitetti, chief executive officer, TDK Mediactive. "As we look to 2003 and beyond to be the 'sweet spot' for our industry, 'Haunted Mansion' and 'Pirates of the Caribbean' theatrical releases will be incredible events with which to launch the game titles on a worldwide basis."
