Berlin, 10th December 2007: Publisher TGC – The Games Company expands its field of activity and turns to developing games for next generation consoles. The certified Nintendo partner has acquired the license of an entire game series for Nintendo’s booming Wii console. From 20th December TGC will publish the Popcorn Arcade series, which is very popular in Britain, under its label Green Kangaroo in German speaking territories. Five games developed by DDI – Data Design Interactive will make the start and bring pure console gaming fun to German livingrooms at the very reasonable price of 29,99 Euro.

The license deal with the British games developer DDI includes 24 titles with highvalue casual content appealing to younger and older gamers alike. In addition to the action racers Billy the Wizard and Monster Trux Arenas the action adventures Anubis II, Ninjabread Man and Rock `n´ Roll Adventures will hit the stores in December.
