NDS Code Lyoko Announced For Nintendo DS

Code Lyoko will be a brand new RPG/Adventure for the Nintendo DS, set for a release in a year.

The Game Factory today announced the signing of a worldwide licensing deal with MoonScoop, Europe's leading producer and distributor of animated series for television, to develop and publish Code Lyoko for the Nintendo DS. The game will be featuring elements from both the RPG and adventure genre and is scheduled for release by fall of 2006.

The deal has been signed through Kidz Entertainment, which has been appointed licensing agent for Scandinavia and Kidz Entertainment will work with MoonScoop, Game Factory and US licensing agent FUNimation to manage development of the game and provide strong marketing support.

The game will be based on the popular 3D animated action-adventure television series about a group of students who uncover a parallel universe called Lyoko inside a super-computer that is threatened by a virus that could destroy the universe. Four ordinary students, Jeremy, Odd, Ulrich and Yumi, must help a virtual humanoid creature named "Aelita" to stop rogue computer XANA's latest attack on their real world...

Nicolas Atlan, Executive Producer of MoonScoop said: "It is has always been our intention to explore gaming opportunities for Code Lyoko as we're confident that it's a property that can be a hit on this platform. We're delighted to be working with The Game Factory on this project."

Axel Dauchez, CEO of MoonScoop, added: "We look forward to sign further licensees over the coming months through Kidz Entertainment, our partner in the region, and believe we have a great team in place for extending the Code Lyoko brand throughout 2006."

  • I like this show. The show is almost like a game already, so it would work well. I just hope they do a good job.
