Today, Majesco Entertainment, the makers of the Cooking Mama series as well as other popular video games, announced today their collaboration with Disney on a game based on the Phineas and Ferb franchise. No details have been announced as of yet, but here's hoping the game is somewhere more along the line of the movie tie-in game than the DS games. I'll be sure to keep up with developments as they, um, develop. Official press release follows.
