D3P strikes Astro Boy deal

Movie tie-in for the animated adventure a year off

D3Publisher is bragging about a worldwide publishing agreement with Imagi Studios for games based on the animated adventure film, Astro Boy.

All versions of the game are scheduled to be released alongside the movie's release at the end of 2009. No need to worry about it just yet then.

"The rich history and endearing story of Astro Boy appeals to fans around the globe and translates exceptionally well to the interactive space," said Yoji Takenaka, president and chief executive officer, North America and Europe, D3P.

"We look forward to working with Imagi to bring the film's unique cast of characters to life in a compelling videogame that fans and gamers of all ages will enjoy."
