Publisher THQ has signed an extension to its partnership with animation studio Dreamworks that will see three new titles released over the next two years.

Alongside the previously announced MegaMind, THQ will now also publish Kung Fu Panda: The KaBoom of Doom, Puss in Boots and The Penguins of Madagascar, a TV licence.

“The three properties announced today, in addition to MegaMind, underscore our commitment to reinvigorating our portfolio of licensed games for kids and families with top global entertainment brands,” THQ’s EVP of Kids, Family and Casual Games Doug Clemmer explained.

Activision, which has previously released Dreamworks titles, will remain as the publisher for Shrek Forever After and How to train Your Dragon.

Dreamworks’ head of worldwide consumer products Kerry Phelan added: “We are pleased to expand our relationship with THQ and continue to be impressed by their focus on the kids and family videogame business.

“We look forward to extending the reach of our feature films and The Penguins of Madagascar TV series into a broad line of games and believe THQ will do a great job of maximizing our properties for family audiences.”
