SANTA MONICA, Calif., May 13, 2009 – Activision Publishing, Inc. (Nasdaq: ATVI), and Nickelodeon today announced a global partnership where the two companies will create an all-new videogame based on the number-one live-action kids’ television show iCarly. Releasing internationally this Fall, the videogame will bring the interactive elements from the series to WiiTM and Nintendo DSTM for the first time.

“iCarly is a groundbreaking show that encourages viewers to contribute content of their own,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “This game is a natural extension of that creativity, and allows players to interact with the characters they know and love through a variety of different ways, any time they like.”

GoldenEye 007 is one of the most revered Nintendo 64 classics. Many Wii owners would love to see the game hit the VC service, there’s a good chance that may never happen. Martin Hollis admitted to the Official Nintendo Magazine that legal issues could prevent 007 from arriving on the Wii Shop Channel.

“There’s always someone with some exclusivity agreement, so there’s lots of lawyers… I’m not going to hold my breath. I’d love it to happen, but I can’t see it.”
