JoWooD and DreamCatcher Games, publishers and distributors of
interactive entertainment software, working in conjunction with Resnick
Interactive Development, announced that they have signed on teen media
stars Jesse McCartney and Cody Linley to lend their talents as the
voices of Frank and Joe Hardy in the forthcoming PC game, The Hardy
Boys: The Hidden Theft.

Securing the voice talent of Jesse and Cody really enhances the overall
entertainment experience for our fans, said Byron Gaum, Global Product
Marketing Manager, DreamCatcher Games. We are thrilled to be working
with both stars on making The Hidden Theft one of the most captivating
Hardy Boys mysteries to date.

It s very exciting having Jesse McCartney and Cody Linley on the
project, said Mike Adams, Producer of The Hardy Boys franchise for
DreamCatcher Games. They are such great young talents, and I look
forward to working with them both.

Emmy award-winning daytime actor and platinum-selling recording artist
McCartney makes his way back to the videogame space as he takes on the
voice of elder brother Frank Hardy in The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft.
Now a veteran at lending his voice to a videogame character, Jesse will
help guide Hannah Montana star Cody Linley as he rounds out the famous
mystery solving duo by lending his voice as Frank s younger brother,
Joe Hardy.

In a release, the companies provided a game summary:

- In The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft, the vault of the Spencer Mansion
is robbed, and the Bayport Police call on the Hardy Boys to help tie up
some loose ends, but they soon find themselves in the middle of a major
criminal investigation that takes them on an adventure all over
Bayport, and even into New York City. But the pieces don t add up, and
Frank and Joe find themselves embroiled in a drama of sinister
proportions. Is the recent theft linked to something from the past? Can
Frank and Joe find and decipher the clues in time to prevent another
crime from happening?

Developed by XPEC Entertainment, The Hardy Boys: The Hidden Theft is
expected to be available for PC users this fall.
