Capcom and Buena Vista Interactive announce that they're collaborating on a PS2 game based on Tim Burton's 1993 animated movie.


Capcom and Buena Vista Interactive have recently announced that they're collaborating to bring a game based on Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas to the PlayStation 2. In the game, players will assume the role of the Pumpkin King, Jack Skellington, and must help to reclaim Halloweentown from the mischievous Oogie Boogie.

"Capcom is pleased to collaborate with Buena Vista Interactive to bring Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas to video game fans," said Robert Lindsey, senior vice president, sales and marketing, Capcom Entertainment. "We believe the story will translate well to video games."

"This is the first time that an entire game will be based on Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. The characters are featured in a popular gameworld in our multimillion-unit selling title with Square Enix, Kingdom Hearts, and the feedback and desire from gamers to see and play more of the characters and environments is astounding," said Graham Hopper, senior vice president and general manager, Buena Vista Games. "Teaming up with Capcom and their talented development team in Japan further emphasizes our ongoing strategy to bring new, core gaming franchises to the video game community through our publishing label, Buena Vista Interactive."

The Nightmare Before Christmas is currently scheduled for release in the fall of 2004. We'll bring you more information on the game as soon as it becomes available.
