Ships Two Robotechs
TDK Mediactive Inc., a global publisher of entertainment software, announced that its
highly anticipated Robotech games have shipped for the Nintendo entertainment systems. Robotech®: Battlecry for the Nintendo® GameCube
video game system and Robotech®: The Macross Saga for the Game Boy® Advance
are on their way to store shelves. Robotech: Battlecry is also available for
the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system and Xbox video game system
We are very excited to bring these Robotech action-adventure titles to the
Nintendo platforms, said Stefan Serwe, vice president of marketing, TDK
Mediactive. We are confident that the many Nintendo GameCube and Game Boy
Advance owners will have an equally enjoyable gaming experience as will the
legion of loyal Robotech fans.
The titles are based on Robotech, the animated television series from Harmony Gold, which first aired in 1985. The popular show combined giant
transforming robots with compelling sci-fi narratives and was the first
major exposure to Japanese animation for many in the United States. After
17 years, Robotech maintains global fan support and continues to be
broadcast in numerous countries worldwide.
While supplies last, a special Collectors Edition of Robotech: Battlecry is
available exclusively through Electronics Boutique and GameStop. The limited edition box set is packed with extra features, including the game's
soundtrack, an exclusive t-shirt, art and more.
