NewKidCo International Inc. (TSE:NKC; OTC BB: NKCIF) was an American video game publisher of children's titles based on popular licensed characters, for Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft consoles. It went out of business in 2005.
The publisher was originally a division of SoftQuad Software.Initially NewKidCo had subsidiary offices in Burlington, Massachusetts and Midtown Manhattan, New York City. At a later point, it was headquartered in Midtown Manhattan, with its only office being there.NewKidCo had a partnership with Canadian animation studio CinéGroupe to make video games based on Tom and Jerry and Dora the Explorer. Circa 2003, two of NewKidCo's properties, Winnie the Pooh and Dora the Explorer, were sold to Gotham Games.
Most of their games were rated E for everyone, with the exception of Tom and Jerry in War of the Whiskers, which is rated T for teen due to its excessive yet cartoony violence. Ubisoft published almost all of NewKidCo's titles in Europe since the company did not have an office there.
