"We continue to be impressed with the outstanding ratings performance of the Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi show," said Careen Yapp, vice president of licensing and business development for D3PA. "Cartoon Network's commitment to the franchise, both on-air and with consumer products, solidified our decision to move forward with an all new DS version of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi for early 2006."

"Kids today not only enjoy but, frankly, expect to find their favorite character properties available to them on multiple entertainment platforms," added John Friend, senior vice president of Cartoon Network Enterprises. "D3PA has proven to be an exceptional creator and marketer of innovative electronic games based on a variety of original characters. We're very excited to see how they will translate Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi's musical, comedy and fantasy action elements into their first-ever Nintendo DS release."
