Press Release

At their Clubhouse on the edge of a very spooky swamp, Mystery Inc. gang mulls over their last adventure! Beyond them, in the deep parts of the swamp, murky waters oozing with sludge and green overgrowth hide any number of mysteries or just about anything else for that matter. During their investigations in the swamp, Scooby and Shaggy are captivated by a delicious smell wafting through the trees and are drawn to investigate. What mystery lies right on Mystery Inc.'s doorstep?

Fred, Daphne and Velma are treating Scooby and Shaggy to a holiday! A local diplomat has kindly offered to host the Super Sleuths as his guests in the town of El Muncho, a dusty desert town. However, very strange things are happening around this villa. The nearby town is all but abandoned from fear of the dead who appear to rise from the graves at night. Mystery Inc. must investigate to set things right!

The Mystery Inc. gang arrives at the cold and blizzarding Howling Peaks in the Alpine mountains intent on spending some time with Daphne’s cousin. But it seems there is another mystery brewing. Naturally, Mystery Inc. is straight on the case! The ski slopes have been closed due to a local legend supposedly coming to life. Worse yet, mysterious pests are scaring all the tourists away! The local logging company has had to stop work too, and it seems that unless someone can get to the bottom of the problem, the small mountain village will miss out on this year’s tourist season. Can the gang solve the mystery before it’s too late?
