Aquaman reaches long-term agreement
It was announced today that TDK Mediactive has come to an agreement with DC Comics to develop and publish games based on the water-based superhero, Aquaman. The first console-based game will be released sometime in 2002, as the agreement allows TDK to release titles on next-generation platforms.
"This legendary hero from DC Comics presents an exceptional opportunity for us,'' said Vincent Bitetti, chief executive officer of TDK Mediactive. "Aquaman's epic adventures are an ideal subject to showcase the exciting graphic capabilities of next-generation platforms. We are delighted to bring the King of Atlantis to life in a whole new way for his loyal fan base."
"The next-generation video game platforms have finally made it possible to produce the kind of epic undersea games we have always envisioned," said Dorothy Crouch, vice president of licensed publishing at DC Comics. "We have seen that TDK has unique expertise in creating video games with the kind of movements and effects necessary for an Aquaman game."
