Majesco gets Goosebumps

Cooking Mama publisher to distribute Scholastic Interactive titles including those based on R.L. Stine's teen terror tales and <i>I SPY</i> book series.

Scholastic Media book series like the Goosebumps horror novels and I SPY picture puzzles can go a long way toward providing children with an appealing entrance into the world of reading. Today, Majesco Entertainment announced a distribution deal with Scholastic games, so children will soon have a book-free way to enjoy those delights.

Upcoming titles covered by the agreement include Goosebumps HorrorLand for the Wii, PlayStation 2, and Nintendo DS, as well as Ultimate I SPY for the Wii. Both of those games will be published by Scholastic's new gaming label, Elastic. Majesco will also handle distribution for a pair of Scholastic's previously released DS games, I SPY Fun House and Animal Genius.

The move fits in with Majesco's current focus, which is casual and mass-market games like its successful Cooking Mama series. The publisher used to work on higher profile titles for the core gaming audience like Psychonauts, BloodRayne, and Advent Rising but retreated from that strategy several years ago.
