THQ to change game name
Publisher THQ recently announced that they will be changing the name of their upcoming game Sphinx and the Shadow of Set to Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy. THQ states this name change is due to the importance of the mummy in the game, who plays a crucial role by solving various puzzles.
"Due to the popularity of the Mummy and his importance to the story of Sphinx, we decided to add his name to the title of the game," said Peter Dille, senior vice president, worldwide marketing, THQ. "The new title, Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy, focuses the attention on the stars of the upcoming Eurocom-developed title, and is an example of THQ understanding its audience and honing its marketing/creative efforts in order to 'hit the mark' with consumers."
Sphinx and the Cursed Mummy is currently scheduled for a fall release on both the Playstation 2 and Nintendo Game Cube.
