THQ's longstanding video games relationship with Nickelodeon continues to bear fruit, resulting in sales of more than $1 billion and accounting for over 50 million units worldwide.

The company has also unveiled its line-up for 2008, with many popular characters returning.

The Naked Brothers Band will make their video games debut, with The Naked Brothers Band: The Video Game (working title). In addition, Spongebob Squarepants will take on a new creative form in Drawn to Life: Spongebob Squarepants Edition. Based on last year's top selling game for Nintendo's DS system, the title will allow players to draw their own characters.

The 2008 portfolio will also include new games based on Nick TV shows Tak and the Power of Juju, Avatar: The Last Airbender and Back at The Barnyard.

"With the enormous popularity of Wii and DS coupled with our exceptionally diverse portfolio of Nickelodeon-based games, THQ continues to lead in family entertainment," said Jim Huntley, director of global brand management at THQ.

"We expect our upcoming titles to offer completely new ways for families to play together."
