3GSM: Lego Batman leads THQ's '07 mobile push

Publisher moving further into Australia and Latin America

The mobile gaming rights to Lego Batman have been snapped up by THQ Wireless, and will be one of the key brands the publisher will bring to market in 2007.

The Lego franchise has enjoyed resurgent success in the past couple of years, with TT Games' award-winning Lego Star Wars series recording impressive sales on both home consoles and mobile.

THQ will also produce the first fruits of the its four-movie deal with Disney Pixar - a game based on animated movie tie-in Ratatouille is due this summer as part of a package that includes wallpapers, ringtones and other content.

The company also intends to expand its mobile offering in Australia with operator deals to be announced shortly, while an increased focus on Latin America is also part of THQ's strategy for 2007.

Other licenses and brands due from the publisher this year include Worms Crazy Golf, Hunting Unlimited, Prison Tycoon, America's Cup and Prehistoric Funpark.

The Stuntman brand, recently acquired by THQ from Atari, will also appear on handsets this year along with another Snood title and a new WWE game.
