TDK Mediactive Befriends PlayStation(r)2 with "Casper Spirit Dimensions"

High Flying Action Game To Feature Everyone's Favorite Ghost In Battle Against the Evil Kibosh

TDK Mediactive, Inc. (OTC: TDKM.OB), a global publisher of entertainment software, announced today that it plans to ship "Casper(r) Spirit Dimensions" for the PlayStation(r)2 computer entertainment system in time for Halloween this year.

A sophisticated character-based game, "Casper Spirit Dimensions" combines advanced technological gameplay with content suitable for everyone. The dark and spooky adventure features Casper in a head-to-head battle against Kibosh and his evil minions hell-bent on taking over the spirit world.

"PlayStation 2 presents a new haunt for Casper, and we are raising him to a whole new level by taking advantage of this next generation console," said Vincent Bitetti, chief executive officer of TDK Mediactive. "With incredible graphics and exciting environments, Casper will appeal to a wide age range. The adventurous story will attract younger gamers, and the game's fierce enemies, and challenging battles will draw in a more mature audience."

"'Casper' features a very accessible two-joystick flight model that completely immerses the player from the moment they start the game," said Peter Gould, vice president of product development for TDK Mediactive.

"The guys at Lucky Chicken Games have done a great job working with Ken Fox, Casper's producer at TDK Mediactive, to develop a game that lives up to the expectations of Casper fans everywhere."
