Cambridge, UK. February 21, 2004 - There has been a Kaz-napping, and only Game Boy Advance players can help Ami and Yumi find their manager Kaz! D3Publisher of Europe Ltd. (D3PE), a publisher and developer of interactive entertainment software, today announced the forthcoming release of Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumiTM: Kaznapped! on the Nintendo Game Boy Advance. Based on Cartoon Network's original hit series, Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumiTM: Kaznapped! is an action packed adventure that allows kids to either play as Ami or Yumi as they travel the globe on a whirlwind rock 'n' roll tour.

The Cartoon Network's Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumi follows the fantastic animated rock 'n' roll adventures of two very cool, but very different, pop stars as they travel around the globe, jam with aliens, get chased by their No. 1 fan and just hang out in their hometown of Tokyo. Players assume the role of Ami or Yumi. Using their unique rock 'n' roll skills they must solve puzzles and overcome obstacles in an attempt to rescue their manager Kaz and recover their missing instruments from their #1 fan, Harmony.

Players must try to recover the girls' missing instruments by outwitting fanatical fans and dangerous Kaz-bots. Along the way they can unlock new costumes and find hidden items that fans of the TV series will instantly recognize. After successfully completing the game, players will gain access to a special secret level.

Hi Hi Puffy AmiYumiTM: Kaznapped will be released in March 2006 for the Game Boy Advance with a MRRP of £19.99.
