Kids will want to experience this bold new adventure series through interactive play, role-playing and more, and it opens the door for other licensed consumer products, promotions and sponsorships to extend the opportunities for kids to engage with the brand.”

Zak Storm – Super Pirate has already released in some key territories around the globe, on Sony’s Pop in the UK—where it is a top five title for 2017.
