Hasbro Interactive announced on Monday that it had signed an agreement with Sony Signatures, a consumer products division of Sony Pictures Entertainment, to bring the arcade classic Q*Bert to the PC and video game console platforms. Q*Bert will join Hasbro Interactive's '99 lineup of arcade favorites, including Frogger, Centipede, Pong, Missile Command and The Next Tetris.
"Q*Bert is one of my all-time favorite games, and I am delighted it will join our growing line of action arcade classics," said Tom Dusenberry, president of Hasbro Interactive. "As we have learned with Frogger's success, a lovable character with quick, approachable game play is truly a winning combination."
Hasbro Interactive will unveil Q*Bert at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) later this week.
