4Kids Grabs Mini Ninjas

It looks like we’ll be seeing a lot more of Eidos’ Mini Ninjas in the future, as film and television production company 4Kids Entertainment becomes the property’s global licensing agent.

The company that owns the North American licenses for both Pokémon and Yu-Gi-Oh now has a lot more adorable video game characters up its sleeve. The tiny protagonists of Mini Ninjas had cartoon written all over them, and 4Kids certainly sees the franchise’s potential.

“Mini Ninjas has a wonderfully distinctive look and compelling characters, and the brand appeals to a broad demographic range – all key attributes for a healthy licensing program across multiple categories,” said Carlin West, executive vice president for acquisitions and development for 4Kids Entertainment.

No plans for a cartoon or film based off of the game and its characters has been announced, but come on — it’s 4Kids.

  • oh god no! everything 4kids touches becomes a mess of blotted out guns and weapons, cigarettes turned lollipops and destroyed personalities. And now they want to make a series?!?

  • I’ll probably be very, very wrong but perhaps we won’t see that atrocious One Piece lollipop smoking censorship as it is being handled from the ground up by them. Maybe, just maybe it will turn out… ok.
