Astro Boy Flick Getting A Video Game Tie-In

astroa About one year from now Imagi Studios will bring Astro Boy to movie theaters everywhere. A film this iconic and child friendly is destined to have a video game tie-in, but who’s going to handle it? D3 Publisher, that’s who.


In some circles D3 is synonymous with wacky budget games and maybe even shojo, but D3 Publisher USA has been snapping up kid friendly licenses right and left. They made many deals with Cartoon Network and are also working on games based on Shaun the Sheep and Coraline. Astro Boy is their latest license acquisition, but we won’t see the game until Q4 2009 when the movie comes out in theaters. No platforms for Astro Boy have been announced, but don’t be surprised to see Astro Boy to appear everywhere.

    All depends on who the developer is. Bring Treasure/Hitmaker back on board, then we’re talking.

    @jeffx – Very true. Don’t get your hopes up about this, but D3 does have a relationship with Treasure via Bangai-O Spirits and ESP so it’s possible to rope them in, but really unlikely since this looks like a D3 USA project. Maybe the team behind Dead Head Fred will do this since D3 owns them now.

    The Sonic team one was underrated :(
