Proving that licensed games will rise from the grave to feast upon the wallets of clueless consumers the world over, THQ has announced another entry into the venerable ghoulie-evading gang's adventures. Shaggy, Scooby, Fred, Daphne and the mysteriously alluring (in a strictly happy fun kiddy way, of course) Velma are all slated for return in Scooby-Doo! Unmasked.

The story as we've gotten it fed to us via press release involves Fred's cousin Jed, who's apparently gone missing. The problem, aside from the extended family rhyming scheme is that Jed happens to be a monster movie set designer and prop maestro. His animatronic googly-mooglies are all out of whack and terrorizing the lot, leading most to believe that Jed's got the stink eye for the studio.

The gang must piece through the mystery and confront big bad boss man Winslow Stanton (voiced by Adam "Family Guy made me a star again" West of 60's Batman TV show fame) after trudging through three distinct worlds parceled out into a handful of levels, mini-games and boss battles -- all good staples of your licensed action platformer affair. Scooby can toss on bat, archer and Kung-Fu threads to gain the ability to glide, fire plungers and chop his way through the baddies. Apparently the clothes do make the man! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA... Ahhh... Ehhh... See, it's an old saying and Scoob puts on... Aw, forget it.

"Scooby-Doo! Unmasked captures the appeal of one of the most enduring and beloved characters of several generations," beamed THQ VP of licensing Germaine Gioia. "Releasing this title into a vibrant mass market gaming audience means that more fans than ever before have the opportunity to experience a fun Scooby-Doo game that can be enjoyed by kids and parents alike."

Two things are all but assured in regards to Unmasked: we'll have plenty more info and media for you as it comes in, and whoever's behind these movie set shenanigans totally would have gotten away with it if it were for those meddling kids.
