Under terms of this agreement, the game publisher will bring Freddi Fish, Pajama Sam and SPY Fox to the Wii system. These three popular children's properties will release on Nintendo's console in mid-2008.I think this is awesome! My kids are too old for these properties now, but when they were younger, they played them a lot. Of course, it helped that I worked at Cavedog, which was in the same building as Humongous, and I could by all of the titles for $10.00. But even before that, I had bought all of the Humongous titles that were available for the 3DO!
'For more than a decade, Humongous has continued to create some of the most memorable and successful interactive entertainment properties for children,' said Jesse Sutton, CEO of Majesco. 'Their characters have demonstrated both tremendous staying power and widespread consumer appeal, and we think this kind of family-friendly content is well-suited to the Wii system.'"
I still have a huge collection of Humongous titles. At some point - probably sooner than later - I will have to deed them over to someone who is starting a family, so the fun and joy gets passed on.
