Konami, BVG Creating Disney Games, Plug’N’Play DDR This Fall
Konami announced a new agreement with Buena Vista Games (BVG), the interactive entertainment arm of The Walt Disney Company, to create a line of Disney-themed video games to be published by Konami. The first title to be released under this agreement will be Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix, a product that will plug directly into the television and include a dance pad to allow players engage in classic DDR gameplay along with popular Disney characters and music.
Konami is partnering with Majesco Entertainment to develop Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix. Majesco also makes other Plug’N’Play products for Konami, such as Frogger and Konami Arcade Advanced. Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix is scheduled to launch this fall.
“This is a powerful synergy that leverages Konami’s highly popular Dance Dance Revolution franchise and Disney’s phenomenal entertainment properties that are beloved around the world,” said Catherine Fowler, Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “With its dynamic gameplay that invites the whole family to get involved and a recognizable cast of Disney characters, Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix is the ideal product to kick off a series of collaborative games that everyone will enjoy.”
“By working with other strong creative leaders in the industry, we are producing innovative games in a variety of different genres that appeal to a broad audience,” said Graham Hopper, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Buena Vista Games. “DDR is a fantastic franchise that has the ability to engage players on a variety of levels and is a perfect fit for Disney. We look forward to working with Konami to create great video game experiences.”
