is no stranger to producing accessible, fun-for-the-whole-family entertainment and has just inked a deal to acquire exclusive rights
to Dreamworks game tie-ins worldwide. This agreement will see THQ produce three titles initially: Kung-Fu Panda 2: The Kaboom of Doom
; a game based on upcoming Shrek
spin-off, Puss in Boots
; and a title based on the animated TV series, The Penguins of Madagascar
. That last one sounds a lot more interesting than a game based on Morgan Freeman's penguins, though we must admit, a game based on the French version of that would be fantastique
But, we digress. THQ also gains rights for "Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network and Nintendo Wii Virtual Console" -- we guess THQ has never heard of WiiWare?
The first title to release as a part of this deal, The Penguins of Madagascar
, will grace store shelves starting next year, while the other games will release alongside their theatrical counterparts in 2011.
