TDK Mediactive, Inc. a global publisher of interactive entertainment software, is set to debut its 2002 product lineup, its strongest and most impressive to date, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles May 22-24, 2002. The company will showcase games of all styles across multiple platforms and genres, including titles created with some of the biggest licenses in the industry. From Shrek and Robotech to Mercedes-Benz and Dinotopia, TDK Mediactive has something for everyone. Furthermore, every viable game system will be represented in the TDK booth (South Hall #1446) including the Nintendo GameCube system, PlayStation2 computer entertainment system, Xbox video game system from Microsoft, and PlayStation game console, as well as the Nintendo Game Boy Advance and Game Boy Color handheld systems. “The presence of TDK Mediactive will be felt at this year’s E3 like never before,” said Vincent Bitetti, chief executive officer, TDK Mediactive. “Our lineup is more powerful than it has ever been, packed with new titles featuring globally recognized brands like Shrek, Robotech and Aquaman. Plus, we’ve got a few more surprises that we plan to unveil at the show.” TDK’s E3 2002 Lineup Robotech Battlecry and Robotech:The Macross Saga: A mission driven, third person action game that takes the hi-tech mecha mayhem of the animated television series and translates it into an exciting real-time 3D game. In this high-octane action shooter, players take on the role of an intrepid fighter pilot and must put their skills to the test in a desperate struggle to aid the Robotech Defense Force (RDF) in safeguarding the planet Earth against the evil alien forces of the Zentraedi armada. Players control the Veritech fighter, a unique multi-purpose mecha, capable of agile ground-based combat in robotic form, or quickly transforming into an advanced tactical fighter for aerial dog fighting. Robotech: Battlecry is scheduled to launch this fall for PlayStation 2, Xbox and GameCube, with Robotech: The Macross Saga being released for Game Boy Advance. Shrek Super Party: Movie-like graphics and multi-player action come to the living room in this interactive board game with 30 action-packed mini-games! Up to four players can play as Shrek, Princess Fiona, Lord Farquaad, Donkey, Monsieur Hood or Thelonius. By advancing in the board game, swapping bugs and/or teaming-up against opponents, players will compete to earn 100 drops of bug juice and win the game. Shrek Super Party is scheduled to release on Xbox in fall, 2002. Shrek Extra Large: The ogre is back! And he’s EXTRA LARGE! Enhanced and redesigned for the GameCube demographic, the hit character-based platformer, Shrek is back and stacked with 10 levels, new and beloved twisted fairy tale characters, over 15 awesome cut scenes and action-packed gameplay! Players will explore twisted fairy tale lands and complete over 50 missions in order to rescue Princess Fiona. Scheduled to release fall, 2002. Shrek Treasure Hunt: Tons of Shrek fun on PlayStation One! In this third-person activity based video game, kids can play as Shrek through a series of mini-games. It all starts in Shrek’s swamp, where he and Princess Fiona are planning a picnic. It seems that Three Blind Mice have borrowed Shrek’s materials and, well, misplaced them. Players will play as Shrek and complete 10 mini-games. Only when all the pieces are collected, will Shrek and Princess Fiona be able to enjoy their lovely picnic. The hunt is scheduled to begin this summer. Shrek Hassle at the Castle: A third-person action/adventure game with a Japanese-flavored character design. The game loosely follows the storyline of the Academy Award® winning major motion picture. Shrek embarks on a journey to save his swamp that has been overrun by fairy tale characters. In order to regain his rightful land, Shrek must rescue Princess Fiona from the evil Dragon’s castle and return her safely to Lord Farquaad. Coming to Game Boy Advance this fall, Shrek Hassle at the Castle features seven massive levels and 21 packed stages. Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis: The dynamic DC Comics super hero stars in a spectacular underwater action/adventure brawler. Aquaman defends the deep-sea city of Atlantis against three of his most infamous arch-enemies, including the Lava Lord and Black Manta. Comic book and video game fans alike will jump at the chance to wield Aquaman’s legendary super powers and cybernetic morphing hook hand against these seemingly invincible villains and their armies. Aquaman: Battle for Atlantis is scheduled to come to Xbox and GameCube this fall. Dinotopia: The Timestone Pirates: Based on James Gurney’s vision of a unique civilization where dinosaurs and humans live peacefully together, Dinotopia immerses players in a colorful action-adventure. Thrust into the role of Clayton, the young hero, players will journey across land, sea and air on a quest to return stolen eggs to a fierce herd of tyrannosaurs, and ultimately claim the legendary Timestone. Dinotopia: The Timestone Pirates has recently released to stellar reviews on Game Boy Advance. The release of the game coincided with the premiere of Dinotopia, the eagerly anticipated mini-series from Hallmark Entertainment, which premiered May 12 on the ABC television network. This “mega-series” is the largest ever made-for-television production. Mercedes-Benz WorldRacing: A challenging driving experience with a mission based game design. At the end of each successfully completed mission, players can unlock new and vintage Mercedes-Benz cars, prototypes and racing models in this electrifying 3D racing game. The custom landscape engine allows players to experience bigger and better racing environments, even allowing them to leave the racetrack itself and drive off-road for shortcuts. The game will feature a large spectrum of complex international scenarios. Mercedes-Benz WorldRacing is due to release for the Xbox in fall, 2002. Pryzm: Chapter One: The Dark Unicorn: In this fantasy action/adventure, Pryzm, a young winged unicorn, and Karrock, a tenacious old troll, seek the cause of a plague of dark magic that has corrupted the lands and twisted the inhabitants into hideous mutants. The unlikely duo use their spectacular magic powers to defend themselves and heal the mutant enemies they encounter on their journey, gradually cleansing the lands of the plague until at last they discover its perilous source. Pryzm: Chapter One: The Dark Unicorn is scheduled to release on PlayStation 2 June 11, 2002. Masters of the Universe He-Man: Power of Grayskull: The most powerful man on the Game Boy Advance… A hero whose courage knows no bounds and strength has no equal. He is He-Man, the most powerful man in the universe. In an epic world of magic and mystery, there are battles to wage and secrets that must be kept. When Skeletor and his evil minions try to take over all of Eternia, it is up to He-Man and the Masters of the Universe to protect their land. The game features both on-foot and vehicular combat modes. Up to four players can battle in head-to-head action with link cables. Coming this fall to Game Boy Advance
