Majesco to release Scholastic titles

Scholastic Interactive’s line-up of games will finally hit European shores via publisher Majesco, MCV can reveal.

The deal will see Goosebumps HorrorLand on Wii and DS and Ultimate I-Spy for Wii hit European shelves before the end of October.

Majesco MD Jason Dutton explained: "We’re really excited about bringing these two quality titles to Europe. Ultimate I-Spy is a family brand with huge visibility and Goosebumps HorrorLand will be in place to scare the pants off of consumers in time for Halloween."

Scholastic Interactive SVP Alan Waldman added: I-Spy and Goosebumps have always had global appeal so we’re delighted to work with Majesco to bring these games to fans in Europe.”

Both titles were released in the US last year and were developed by UK-based studio Gusto Games.

MCV revealed back in February that Scholastic was on the hunt for partners to help it grow into Europe.

Scholastic is one of the world’s biggest children’s book publishers, famed for its Goosebumps franchise and for publishing the Harry Potter books in the US. The firm also owns a production company which has made a series of TV programmes including The Baby-Sitters Club.
