Look for the trio's Scam of the Century this fall.

Cartoon Network and D3Publisher of America Unveil Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century for Nintendo DS

Ed, Edd and Eddy can't seem to stay out of trouble. Cartoon Network

Enterprises, the global licensing and merchandising arm of the network, has

awarded D3Publisher of America, Inc. (D3PA), a leading publisher and

developer of interactive entertainment software, the handheld gaming rights

to the original series Ed, Edd n Eddy. Building off of a successful

franchise, fans of the hit Cartoon Network series get the chance to help the

Eds tackle their latest predicament when Eddy's "Who to Scam and When" book

is lost and read by an angry mob of kids. The interactive video game Ed, Edd

n Eddy: Scam of the Century is scheduled for release this fall for

Nintendo DS™.

"D3PA is a proven leader and partner in interactive gaming and

we are fortunate to be working with them again on another high-profile

Cartoon Network release," said Christina Miller, vice president of U.S.

consumer products for Cartoon Network Enterprises. "We are also excited to

offer fans of the show a truly unique way to interact with the Ed, Edd n

Eddy brand."

"D3PA is thrilled to create a brand new game based on Ed, Edd n Eddy, the

longest-running and most successful of Cartoon Network's franchises," said

Alison Quirion, vice president of marketing, D3PA. "The rich character

profiles and story elements from the show will be authentically portrayed in

Ed, Ed n Eddy: Scam of the Century, ensuring that the game will be an

immersive experience in to the Eds' world and a must-have for fans this

fall."

Ed, Edd n Eddy, an original, half-hour series from creator and executive

producer Danny Antonucci, tells the story of three best friends who band

together to tackle one of life's most daunting challenges-puberty. Though

they have the same first name and live on the same cul-de-sac in the

suburbs, the three boys' personalities are as different as they are

ridiculous. They're genuinely confused by the world, but they're too cool

to admit it. Bolstered by the power of adolescent ignorance, they plunge

headlong into outlandish summertime adventures that would be unbelievable if

they weren't so close to the reality of every kid's life. Ed, Edd n Eddy

airs Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. (ET/PT) on Cartoon Network.

Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century for Nintendo DS features an original

storyline developed around Eddy losing his precious "Who to Scam and When"

book. When the three friends realize their classmate Kevin has the book in

his hands and an angry mob of kids has developed, they run for the woods.

Splitting up to throw off the crowd, they plan to meet up back at the

cul-de-sac. What they do not know is that several adventures await them on

their quest home. Players take control of the Eds and must make their way

through tricks, traps, angry kids and a barrage of ammunition including soap

and broccoli. Ed, Edd and Eddy finally make their way back to the cul-de-sac

only to find the ultimate obstacle before them: Rolf has built a giant fort

to keep the Eds out forever! Each Ed must use his own special talent to

smash, brainstorm or scam his way inside. Once inside the fort, the Eds

regroup to reclaim Eddy's scam book. But standing in their way is none other

than The Masked Melonhead Avenger and Splinter-The Wonderwood. Let the final

showdown begin!

Ed, Edd n Eddy: Scam of the Century interactive video game features 13

total stages, special attacks using the touch screen, the option to blow

into the microphone to bring characters back to life, three side story

mini-games and more wacky special items.

Cartoon Network has a strong partnership with D3PA which has also produced

Ben 10: Protector of Earth, the interactive game based on the hit original

series, Ben 10, scheduled for release this fall.
