For Immediate Release

Blast Entertainment, part of The Mastertronic Group have today announced the release of Johnny Bravo on Nintendo DS in“Hukka-Mega-Mighty-Ultra-Extreme Date-O-Rama”– enter the world of the best known steamin’ hunk of cyber fella– JOHNNY BRAVO!

Johnny Bravo is one of the most popular and enduring characters on the Cartoon Network channel. He's easily recognised by his trademark sunglasses, rippling muscles and ultimately futile attempts to impress the ladies. Johnny Bravo has not only appeared regularly on Cartoon Network since 1998 but has also starred in his own movies and DVDs.

Play the part of Johnny Bravo in this inherently humorous game and compete against rival studs over a number of events to win a date with the chick on the Hukka-Mega-Mighty-Ultra-Extreme Date-O-Rama TV show! The game has the same look and feel as the TV series and the simple yet fun design makes it instantly accessible to casual and non-hardcore gamers. Use the NDS stylus to try and beat your opponent in the Muscle Madness weight lifting event and have fun throwing rubbish in the recycling bins or straight at your opponents in Taking Out the Trash. Use the Cheese-O-Vac suction gun to vacuum up the plague of mice, then blow into the NDS microphone to clear the collected rodents ready for the next Cheese-O-Vac vendetta! Control the food catapult using NDS Touch Screen Technology - try to impress the chick by firing all the food at your rival! The Creator of Johnny Bravo, Van Partible, has had a huge amount of input into the creation of the game and has designed the cover artwork and drew specific art characters for the game as well as hidden unlockable concepts (five items).

Kirsty Payne, Marketing and PR Manager at Mastertronic, commented:“Johnny Bravo has a regular slot in the Cartoon Network comic and enjoys phenomenal popularity across all age groups. It’s a strong brand backed up with a hilarious game!"

The Group now leads the European value publishing sector through its retail brands M.A.D.

The Group also offers, through its wholly owned subsidiary The Producers Limited (also acquired in 2004), a 'cradle to grave' total turnkey service for physical product, from marketing through packaging and warehousing, to retail and digital distribution.
