Warner Bros. Interactive to launch Scooby-Doo! videogame

MUMBAI: Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced Scooby-Doo! First Frights, the videogame that will be the complement to the upcoming Warner Premiere release.

This action-adventure game lets players take on the role of young Scooby-Doo and teenage versions of the newly formed Mystery, Inc. crew to solve their very first cases. The game will be released on the Wii, Nintendo DS and PlayStation2 computer entertainment system in fall 2009.

In Scooby-Doo! First Frights, developed by Torus Games and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, players put their sleuthing skills to the test solving puzzles, combating enemies and collecting clues before unmasking each mysterious villain. After solving each mystery, players can use unlockable character costumes for Scooby-Doo, Fred, Velma, and the rest of the gang to access new areas in every level.

“We are taking the family friendly Scooby-Doo brand to a new level in gaming with a twist on the fan favorite characters. And as a mother, I’m really excited to finally have a Scooby-Doo game that I can play with my son,” said Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment senior vice president Development and Production Samantha Ryan.
