Disney’s money-making machine “Beauty and the Beast” is getting a new incarnation, as a children’s video game, to be created by Hudson Soft USA Inc. for the Nintendo and Super Nintendo Entertainment Systems and sell for $ 60-$ 65 .
Kevin Sullivan, a marketing manager with the San Francisco-basedHudson Soft, says the format of the video game will be “adventure, with the romance element between the characters involved.”
It may also feature some music from the movie’s soundtrack.
Hudson Soft, best known for its “Adventure Island” video game series, won the lucrative license for “Beauty” against four final bidders, Sullivan said.
“The Little Mermaid,” as well as many Disney characters, also have been cycled into video games. Disney is now taking bids on its profitable “Aladdin,” Sullivan said.
